[R] Clean method to convert date and time between time zones keeping it in POSIXct format

I know two ways to convert dates and time from on time zone to another but
I am pretty sure that there is a better (cleaner) way to do that.
Here are the methods I know:
## The longest way ...
T1 <- as.POSIXct("2016-05-09 10:00:00", format="%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S",
T2 <- as.POSIXct(format(T1, tz="UTC"), tz="UTC") # format convert it to
character, so I have to convert it back to POSIXct afterward.
## The shortest but probably not the cleanest ...
attributes(T1)$tzone <- "UTC"
