Laptops and voltage spikes

Hi all. I'm currently visiting Nairobi, and am noticing something disturbing while charging my Macbook: it looks like the power is waxing and waning through the charger, and I'm worried that voltage spikes will damage my computer.

I am using a converter with "high" and "low" options and have it on the "low" setting. Any advice on how common this is or how I can fix the problem? I am here for work and really cannot lose the use of my laptop, but I can't afford to permanently damage it either.
