Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unsafe! Beware! Likely design fault! Bought this item for our trip to Las Vegas. We get in the hotel, I plug the transformer in and attach the plug of my UK laptop into the transformer. Within 2 minutes, smoke started coming out of the transformer (a potential fire hazard if we had put it on and gone out). I had to quickly pull out the transformer from the main socket and now the transformer is completely dead. A wasted £30! I will take this up with Maplin on our return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just the job! I needed an inverter at short notice and found this one on the Maplin website. it works a treat and didn't even feel warm to the touch after extended use.

My nephew is moving to the USA. He wants to take his Yamaha Digital Organ. On the back plate it states: 220-230V 50/60Hz 60W. Would it be safe to use this Step-Up Transformer?

Asked by: Mike
Yes as long as the power supply for the Organ does not draw more than 100 watts.

Is the 100VA US / UK Step Up Transformer equipped with a three pin US plug or a three pin? I.e. If the power socket only takes a two pin plug will if fit or will the third one get in the way?

Asked by: JJJJ
This has the 2 pin type.

I am travelling from the UK to Mexico - will this converter allow me to charge my phone, use my hairdryer etc in Mexico (where the voltage is 110v)?

Asked by: VicS73
Voltage will be fine but you need to be careful regarding the power consumption of your devices, this unit is rated 100w max load. Phone = quite possibly as long as the wattage does not exceed 100w Hair dryer = most likely not as it's wattage will almost definitely exceed 100w
