Hi, I'm confused by the description on this product. It says it is for operating UK equipment in the USA, but the initial description says 110V to 240V ? 

Asked by: slvrfox
Yes this is correct, this will convert a 110 volt supply from a USA power socket to 240 volts for use with UK equipment

Hi. I have a blender (manufactured in the US) rated at maximum 350 W. Can I use this 300W convertor to use the appliance in the UK? or I have to go one step up to a 500W converter? Wouldn't it be a bit excessive?

Asked by: Mary
This item is not suitable for your use, you cannot exceed the stated wattage. Your 350 W device will need one of these in order to operate on UK mains

Will my 230v hairdryers work on this

the device has a max safe working load of 300 Watts, hairdryers (even travel ones) typically have a much higher wattage than this.
