    Welcome!

    You can charge it from your USB pPC/Mac, but it takes a long time.
    If it was originally a US iPad, probably you didn't get the adapter, or it has the wrong connector. You can get a new charger at any apple store, and that will charge at least 5x as fast.

    Don't mix it up with an iPhone charger! The iPad charger has much more power. Make sure you ask specifically for an iPad charger.

    Your USA charger will work just fine on 220 volts. All you need is an adapter plug to convert from the American style plug to the European style plug. It will not blow up!
