Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential accessory if travelling to USA or CANADA The transformer was essential for us as we needed to have a 220 volt supply for UK appliances for our trip to Canada. It plugs easily into the 3 pin sockets in Canada. All you have to do is plug in your UK appliance into the 3 pin socket on the face of the transformer. If you have more than one appliance requiring a 220 v supply you may find it useful to include a multi socket extension lead in your luggage. Note that laptop/iPad/smart phone power cables will work from the Canada/USA supply without the need for a transformer.

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

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

Can this be used to use UK 240V appliances (e.g. hairdryer) in Japan (100V)?

Asked by: Jennifer
Unfortunately.the transformer's plug (3 pin) does not fit Japanese sockets(2 pin).I found this out during August when the transformer was taken on holiday to Japan
