Voltage Converters and InvertersThere are no products.
Voltage converters are step-down transformers, used for powering equipment bought abroad (usually USA) designed to work off 110 or 120V, to work from a UK or European mains of 240V. It is provided with a mains lead which plugs into a standard UK socket, and the appliance, fitted with an American plug, plugs directly into the unit. It is important to use one that will deliver sufficient power to run the appliance. The power needed (in watts or VA) will be on the rating plate of the appliance.InvertersÂ power 230V mains equipment from a 12V car battery. Take care not to overload the inverter; use only equipment whose wattage does not exceed that of the inverter.
