I am rather baffled by this. I recently moved to Europe, and have been charging my electronics with the proper adapters. Most modern electronics seem to be able to handle the 120-240v range with no problem. However, before I moved, my personal laptop could not remain charged for more than a few minutes at a time without being plugged in. Now, the battery life seems not brand new but significantly extended. How is this possible? I confess I know very little about battery chemistry, but shouldn't the voltage that reaches the laptop's battery be the same downstream of the block regardless of the line voltage? Is it possible the higher line voltage is able to charge it better?
