This transformer allows you to use UK appliances in the USA. This unit can be used for appliance with power of up to 45W.
The transformer has a power rating of 45 watts. If you try to run a device which takes more power the transformer will burn out (doing this invalidates the warranty). We do not accept any liability for damage to any equipment through miss-use of this appliance; please ensure that your appliance does not exceed the maximum wattage capacity as detailed in the description.
To determine the correct transformer wattage, please contact your device manufacturer. Alternatively if the current and voltage is specified on the appliance, you can calculate it using the formula below.
Power Rating = Voltage (in volts) x Current (in amps)
If in doubt as to suitability email / call us for advice, we shall ask for the voltage, wattage etc. which should be on the rating label at back or underneath of the appliance you wish to power.

Selecting the correct Voltage Transformer / Converter for your appliance.
The information compiled below is designed to help you in choosing the right transformer, please read on if you are not familiar with transformers.
Step Up or Step Down?
Step Down Voltage Converters (or Step Down Transformers) are for using electrical equipment/appliances from the USA 100-120V in the UK or Ireland 220-240V. They have a 3 pin UK power Plug and a US Socket.
Step Up Voltage Converters (or Step Up Transformers) are for using electrical equipment/appliances from the UK or Ireland 220-240V in the USA 100-120V. They have a 2 or 3 pin US power Plug and a 3 pin UK Socket.

How to determine correct transformer?
You can find required information on the appliance/device manufacturer's label located on the back or bottom of the appliance, or on the box, or in the specifications section of the appliance owner's manual otherwise contact manufacture or the seller you bought this item
To determine the correct Voltage you must to know Watts (W) of your appliance.
If the label does not specify the wattage, but you know the Amperage (A) and Input Voltage you can calculate it using the following formula:
Amps (A) x Input Voltage (V) = Watts
Example: 2 Amps x 110 volt = 220 watts
We recommend using a Voltage Converter / Transformer with a Max Watts rating that is at least 25% higher than your appliance. Some appliances such as Power tools, Motors, Laser printers and TVs require a converter 2-3 times the watts that the appliance is rated for. This is because these items require a surge of power when they are first turned on.
So in above explained example you need transformer 220 Watts x 25% (1.25) = 275 Watts (So you need transformer which able to take power more than 275 Watts)
A higher watts rated transformer will never hurt your appliance, however if you buy one that is not strong enough, it will not work.
This transformer has a power rating of 45 watts. If you try to run a device which takes more power the transformer will burn out (doing this invalidates the warranty). We do not accept any liability for damage to any equipment through miss-use of this appliance; please ensure that your appliance does not exceed the maximum wattage capacity as detailed in the description.
Now again this advertise is for UK appliance which need power less than 45W to use in US mains socket, if you need higher or lower, step up or step down transformer than have a look our eBay shop or email us back with specifications you have.
