Voltage conversion on notebook

I just bought a macbook air and Im planning on taking it with me to europe. I have bought the pin conversion adapters (so I can plug in the charger to the wall) but will I also need to buy a voltage converter?
I understand everywhere in europe runs on 220v/50 Hz, and in North america we run 110 V / 60 Hz? will this affect my battery if Im going to be using it over a six month period?

I think you mean 220-240V.
All you need is the European plug adapter, as the charger supports both 110V and 220-240V.
You may also want a surge protector.

I agree with 6string.
I bought my MBP in the U.S. and had used it overseas without a transformer for almost 3 years. Never had any problems.MBP 11,3 | Logic Pro X | Ableton Live 9 | Traktor Pro 2 | AKAI MPC2000XL, X7000, MPK-49 | Roland MV-8000, SP-808, TR-707, TR-808 & TR-909 | Ensoniq ASR-10 | x0xb0x #911 & Willzyx | Denon DN-MC6000 | (3) Technics SL-1200MK1 | 4000+ vinyl records
