Will my 230v hairdryers work on this

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

Hi - Will this voltage convertor work with a 110 v piece of equipment, which is a small lathe, and step up the voltage to 230v with no disadvantage to the operation of the equipment?

Asked by: Anonymous
It's really going to depend on the operational power of the lathe. You need to check the wattage of your device. If it exceeds 300w then this unit is not suitable.
