Can I buy a HP photo printer (HP Photosmart 8150) in the USA and use it in the UK (London)?

My son lives in London and I would like to buy him a photoprinter for Christmas.  He has several laptops and when he visits us he can use his laptops with just a conversion plug (UK to US).  I found it very difficult to purchase anything for him since UK sites only allow shipping to credit card's billing address.  

I would like to purchase the HP 8150 printer for him here in the USA, would I just need a conversion plug for him to use it in London or would I need to buy a printer that was built for UK power specifications?

    I checked the HP site and and there are no country specific issues so I guess the converter plug is the only thing you need to match the outlet in the UK.
