Because there are so many cheap travel adaptors available, people often buy power adaptors thinking they are the complete solution to their power needs. More often than not though, for a device to work properly, the mains power has to be converted to the voltage the device is designed to run on, and so we are offering people these transformers for such a need.

It's important that you calculate whether these units are going to be able to except your load, so check the rating of your appliance, the important detail is the wattage. Compare it to the wattage of the device listed.

WATTAGE IS ALSO KNOWN  AS "VA" (VOLT AMPS)

YOU MUST CHECK THE ORDER OF THE LOAD BEFORE ORDERING, A TOO HIGH LOAD WILL BLOW THE UNIT UP, WE CAN ADVISE IF YOU NEED HELP ON THIS, JUST EMAIL US.

A useful tip here, when deciding whether a device is worth converting. If the device is high energy but cheap to buy, then do not buy a converter for it unless it has sentimental value. A perfect example is a Kettle. A Kettle will use 2000w and will set you back a tidy sum for a converter, but you can buy a Kettle for £10-15 ( except countries like Mexico which will set you back £70!) . Apply this logic to the rest of your equipment and only buy converters for the items that really matter.

THE LOAD IS CALCULATED BY

VOLTS  X  AMPS =WATTS. (OR VA)

WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU BUILD IN AN EXTRA 20-40% INTO THE FORMULA FOR POWER SURGES BUT OUR CONVERTERS ARE DESIGNED TO RUN ON HIGHER LOADS THAN RECOMMENDED, TYPICALLY 20%.

IF HEATING DEVICES ARE INVOLVED, IT'S BEST TO CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER OF THE DEVICE AND FIND OUT IF IT HAS A PEAK WATTAGE WHICH IS SOMETIMES FAR IN EXCESS OF THE GENERAL WORK LOAD ( THE DRAW WHEN SOMETHING IS JUST STARTING TO HEAT UP MAY BE FAR IN EXCESS OF IT'S DRAW WHEN IT REACHES IT'S IDEAL TEMPERATURE)

THE WATTAGE IS YOUR LOAD. YOU WILL FIND BOTH THE VOLTAGE AND THE AMPAGE OF THE DEVICE ON MOST EQUIPMENT. IN THE USA,  IT'S THE LAW TO HAVE AN INFO PANEL. MOST GAMES CONSOLES AND DVD PLAYERS HAVE A LOW WATTAGE BUT WATCH OUT FOR THE XBOX, IT'S REALLY A COMPUTER AND NEEDS THE LOAD FOR ONE TOO.

1000W DESKTOP AC/AC CONVERTER 230V TO 110V STEP DOWN TRANSFORMER
REF: SKY-651.184

To avoid confusion, you plug your USA appliance into this device, and then this device into the UK mains.
A desktop voltage converter with a UK 3-pin mains input and 3-pin USA type socket output for operating 110V North American appliances and equipment with a power consumption of up to 1000W. CE approved for use in the UK and the European community.
 

THIS RUNS VERY QUIETLY AS COMPARED TO SOME TRANFORMERS OF THIS POWER.

THIS IS A HIGH LOAD DEVICE THAT HANDLES SO MUCH MORE THAN MOST TRANSFORMERS THIS PRICE. IT COULD EASILY HANDLE A TV, HI-FI AND GAMES CONSOLE ALL AT ONCE FOR EXAMPLE.

Basically, look at the Voltage and the Ampage and multiply them together with a calculator, this is called the load. If your load is less than 1000w then this device is perfect for you. If you are going to use the transformer continuously, then make sure that the load does not exceed 800w. Sometimes the load has been calculated for you and will be measured in watts (w). Abroad this load can be symbolised as Va.
