Step-down and Step Up Voltage Conversion?
This Goldsource ST-100 Step-down and Step-up Voltage Converter is for use in the UK to power electrical equipment from the USA and vice versa. What it does is convert UK 220 - 240 volts to US 110 - 120 volts. The output is pure AC and the voltage converter can be used with all appliances rated 0 - 100W. This voltage converter will take US two pin and three pin plugs.
What Can I Use It With?
Everything with a rating of 100 Watts or below (although in practise it is a very good idea to allow some margin for error especially for extended usage). This would include items such as DVD Players and Hi-fis to equipment such as dehumidifiers (check rating to be sure). This is a light duty desktop voltage converter and it weighs 1.5KG.
Be careful with TVs. They often give a low wattage in the instructions and when the TV is running this wattage will be correct, but when TVs turn on they surge and this surge can be many times the running wattage. We recommend a converter of at least 500 Watts for use with TVs. Also do not use with heat producing items such as electric blankets, hair straighteners or hair dryers as these appliances also draw a much higher wattage than this unit can handle.
Simply plug the voltage converter into a UK socket and plug the US plug into the voltage converter.
Step Down and Step Up?
We sell this primarily as a Step Down voltage converter as it is usually used in the UK or other 240-220V European countries for powering items from the US and other 110-120V countries.. However, all Goldsource converters are very versatile and have the ability to also be used as step up converters (to allow the use of UK equipment in the US). If you wish to do this, all you need to do is change the jumper switch at the back of the converter and fit an adapter to the power plug or use the appropriate power lead (we supply an IEC power lead free with each Goldsource voltage converter).
