Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietly effective It is heavy, but not surprisingly so. Easy to move around to where it is needed. It's quiet, if there is a hum, I can't hear it. I've bought several. One I leave on all the time, and it's never heated up or caused problems. Do be careful about the Wattage, especially if you plan to leave it on for extended periods. But used as directed, these are very reliable and well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely reliable. I originally purchased this item in late 2013 to power a imported 'next-gen' video game console. It has worked solidly for 3 years (and still works!) despite being switched on for virtually all of this length of time. I've only stopped using it because I've discovered a simpler method of powering the video game console. Great kit. Would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfactory voltage converter Product was ideal for powering a USA voltage 1950s classic portable sewing machine (originally sold in France before 240 v AC was adopted there) whether in UK or most European countries. The integral handle is an excellent feature as is the wipe clean plastic casing. This product would be the answer for anyone wanting to use a variety of portable sub-300 Watt USA sourced appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Was bought as a present for my partner who has a USA 110V sewing machine. This is well over-rated for that. Consequently it runs cool and without any buzzing, as has been noted with reviews on other converters with a lower capacity. Worth paying a little more for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent item Just received this yesterday and it seems to work well. The step down transformer does exactly what I wanted and the power output is very good. Another good point is the excellent price. Thank you and good luck Maplins!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did just what it says on the tin. I bought this for a dremel pet nail grinder charger sourced from the US. Very easy to set up and worked out of the box. A little bulky but does the job.

I have a 2 gallon USA air compressor, hobby one...it's 115v and 1.9a and 60hz...would this be suitable to run it?

Asked by: DanP
Please note this device cannot convert mains frequency. In reference to the draw itself as long as the watt draw does not exceed the watts stated on the device then it will be able to run it.

I have a 110v coffee machine and the fuse keeps blowing out. I am using 2.5A fuses to replace. Are they the correct ones? Which fuses should I buy for replacement?

Asked by: zladha
Not knowing the product that you have it would be unwise for us to guess the correct fuse for the item .

I am buying a Synergy portable infra red sauna from America. It states it is 110V/50H and will need a converter. Will this be suitable or do I need something else?

Asked by: Maz55
Impossible to say without knowing the wattage of the item you intend to use. 300 watts or less ... yes it will be OK
