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 step up converters listed in this page, allow 220-240 Volt electronic Items such as: TVs, DVds, VCRs, Radios,and lights,with power consumption under 100 watts to be used in a country with power supply rated 110-120 Volts.(Step up)

Similar equipment that may also fall in this category include: laptop computers,camera and cellphone chargers, electric tooth brush, and hair styling tools. Please note that It is essential to get familiar with the power consumption of your equipment (usually displayed in watts or amps) in order to choose the appropriate voltage converter to fulfill your needs. Please take advantage of our Voltage Converter Finder for assistance answering your questions.

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.
