Hi! I have a Chinese power supply and I heard the Chinese voltage measurements can be different than North American voltage measurements. For example if an American measurement was 130V it would be a different number in China but be the same voltage. Is this true or a myth?
Here is all the power supply's information and picture:

So what's the issue you're having?
I have never heard that rumor, a volt is a volt, an watt is a watt.

Also, why is it glowing? Maybe all the lead in it's made it radioactive *worried face*

Okay thank you! *lol* I needed to run the picture through Photoshop so people could see the letters more clearly, one side effect is it ended up looking radioactive *lol* If I was that close to a power supply that looked like that I think I might be glowing right now.

I kind of assumed, but, had to make a joke.

Also of note: Most newer laptop switching power supplies are "universal", and can operate on either of the common line frequency standards (50 or 60 Hz), and nearly all line voltage standards. You'll see that supply is labeled as being able to operate from 100 to 240 VAC at 50 or 60 Hz.
