Watts = volts squared/resistance
since the resistance of the heating element does not change if we double
the voltage we 4 x the power (watts).

but you got it right in the end
the writing on my laptop power supply is too small to read, but I am
sure it says 220/110 volt input. better check it out though! BoooooM!
