I can't speak for 'the rest of the world' as you've tried to do, but here
in "The States", we use a voltage doubler on the PS, so it comes out the
same DC voltage as in your part of the world.

Yes, and that high voltage is exactly what is in this project, even tho it
is powered by 12VDC.

Trouble is they're usually as fearless as those who drive automobiles. And
60,000 of those die every year (in the U.S.) due to auto accidents. So
there is a risk, and there is an equally greater risk that we take every
day, driving to wherever.
