Product overview

• Allows you to operate USA equipment in the UK• Two output sockets that will accept 2 or 3-pin USA type plugs• Ideal for Playstation 3 (PS3) and Xbox 360 US models for use in the UK • Full encapsulation of the transformer improves heat dissipation and prevents ingress of moisture• The toroidal construction benefits from smaller size and reduced weight compared to laminated transformers

Toroidal technology is more energy/weight efficient and cheaper to run when compared to traditional laminated transformers. Suitable products include most AC mains adapters, calculators, electric razors, radios, ghetto blasters, CD players, some handheld games consoles, air purifiers, Christmas tree lights, nebulisers and laptop and desktop computers, TVs and Hi-fis (ensure the rating is correct). Ideal for multimedia and AV equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Brilliant I bought this to power a 65 inch TV from the US. The build of the converter is quite small (so it doesn’t take up unnecessary space), no humming sound and does the job brilliantly, I will definitely recommend.

Hi I purchased a 65 inch TV from the US. Power Supply is AC110-120V 50/60Hz and power consumption (max) is 220w. Can you please advise if this converter will work

Asked by: Temi
Whilst we can guarantee that this converter will step down UK voltage in order to power your US device we cannot make any guarantee that your Television will be suitable for use here in the UK.

Hi, I have an HP printer rated at 315w when printing that I'd like to bring with me from the US to UK. Would a 300W transformer be sufficient, since it's so close to the rated power consumption?  Thank you for your help.

Asked by: Jane
You would require a product that can supply the full wattage that the printer requires.

Can this devise also be used to convert 110V to 230V?

Asked by: Mike
The device allows you to use 110v devices on UK mains, it does not work the other way round.
