1)  Is it as easy as flipping the switch on the back of the PSU and getting some plug adapters?

2)  What is a "safe" amount of juice to pull through a single outlet?  Is 10 amps ok?  15?

Depends on the PSU. All the ones I have are auto switching, but the ones with a switch on the back that read 110v or 240v shout work once switched to the 240v side.

2)  What is a "safe" amount of juice to pull through a single outlet?  Is 10 amps ok?  15?
Depends on what the wiring size, and what the outlet was designed for. I ran a new line for my 240v drop, enough to handle 30 amps.

You should be able to put twice the wattage through the same wire because the equipment will draw half the amps for the same wattage. You should use a 220 volt receptacle however so no one is tempted to fry other equipment that expects 110.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

May I ask what you're pulling through each outlet?
I only have a single outlet with one of these plugged into it:

And I'm currently only pulling 8 amps, but I'm still adding to my miners.
