Step Up & Down Voltage Converter - Transformer
What you need to know about selecting voltage converters
When traveling overseas you should be asking yourself the following:
How do I select the correct voltage converter/transformer for my equipment? ( Step down or step up) How many watts/amps do I need for my converter to work with the equipment I have? Should I purchase a voltage converter/transformer that is more powerful than my equipment?If so, how much more power (watts/amps) should my converter be able to handle? Because these questions should be on your mind when planing a trip overseas, 110220 volts has created a tool that will help you answer these questions. Go to our Voltage Converter Finder answer a simple 4 question questionnaire about your equipment, and get a list of what are the voltage converter/transformers that will work for your specific needs.
The transformers listed in this page are suitable for 110-120 Volts (US,Canada,and some central ans south American countries) electronics like TVs, DVDs, VCR s, Radios,and lights,with power consumption varying between 0-3000 watts,that need to operate in a country with power supply of 220-240 Volts (most European,African and South American countries).
there are other appliances considered in this category as well.Laptops,cellphone chargers,hand mixers, blenders, irons, vacuums, coffee makers,home theater systems,power tools,and other home appliances,Professional equipment, as well as personal items such as hair clippers, Hair dryers and curling irons. Please do your homework before purchasing your voltage converter transformer by learning the wattage or amps consumption of your equipment in order to purchase the correct voltage converter for your needs . Take advantage of our Voltage Converter Finder designed to guide you to the voltage converters most suitable for your specific needs.
Note: voltage converters should NEVER be used at 100% capacity. Please make sure to calculate a 30% slack for you converter to work with for non-motorized equipment, and 100% slack for motorized equipment. Example: a laptop (non-motorized equipment) that consumes 70 watts to work needs a 100 watt converter/transformer (30% Slack). While a small shaver (motorized) that consumes 50 watts also needs a 100 watt converter.transformer(100% slack) to be able to operate properly.
