Voltage Converter 85 Watt

Voltage Converter 85 Watt


Light Duty 85 Watt Voltage Converter converts foreign electricity to North American Standard so electronic devices built for use in North America can operate on foreign electrical sources.  electronic devices built for use in North America are designed to operate on 110 - 120 volts.  Foreign electrical sources are commonly 220 - 240 volts.  To use your North American electronic devices overseas a converter is necessary to change the voltage to 110 - 120 volts. This transformers can be used with appliances that have 85 watts or less.

Voltage Transformers enable the use of North American appliances that run on 110-120 Volts to be used in foreign countries with 220-260 Volts. This transformers can be used with appliances that have 85 watts or less.

Transformers are required (instead of converters) when continuous power is needed for electronic equipment or large appliances such as computers kitchen appliances medical equipment power tools stereo systems or any permanently installed electrical equipment.

This converter converts 220/240 volt foreign electricity to North American standard 110/120 volts.  Its step-down transformer produces a true sine wave output for use with electronic devices rated up to a maximum of 85 watts.

How to Use Your 85 Watt Converter

  1. Read all instuctions before usein converters.
  2. Insert plug from your 110 / 120 volt device into the converter.
  3. Plug converter into a 220 / 240 volt wall outlet.  Operation light will come on and you are ready to turn on your device.  Note: If outlet is not recessed, fold out wire support bracket and then plug converter into outlet.
  4. For best results unplug your converter from the wall outlet when not in use.
  • This converter is equipped with two round continetal Europe pins which are used with most 220/ 240 electical outlets.  You may need an additional adapter plug in some countries.  
  • Before using your converter check to see if the electical outlet is 220 / 240 volts.  The converter will not work in a 110/ 120 volt outlet.
  • This 85 Watt converter is equipped with a safety fuse that will "blow" if the converter is used with devices exceeding its 85 watt rating.  If this occures, unplug the converter from the wall outlet, allow to cool and replace fuse.  A spare fuse is packed in the fuse compartment.
  • Motorized devices may operate a bit slower when used in foreign countries.  This is normal and will not harm your device.
  • The 85 Watt Converter accepts grounded North American plugs but DOES NOT continue the ground to the foreign electrical outlet.

Recessed European Outlets

IMPORTANT: If you are using a voltage converter and are traveling in a country that uses recessed electrical outlets you will need to carry a Continental Europe Non Grounded two round pin plug, even if the converter has these round pins built in.
