How to convert 220 volts to 110 volts for the iPod Touch

The battery of an iPod Touch prepared for use in the United States is designed to be reloaded from the current supplied by a 110-volt electrical system. Power is transmitted to the battery charger with an iPod battery, which are connected via a USB cable and then connected to a 110 volt outlet. To use the power of a 220 volt outlet with an iPod Touch, set the current 220 volts to 110 volts. A conversion adapter voltage, also known as "Step Down Transformer," it is necessary and can be obtained from an electronics store, a hardware store and even some drug stores.

1. Place the 220-110 voltage converter card (aka, "Step Down Transformer") next to a 220 volt outlet. Plug the adapter into the outlet.

2. Connect the end of a USB cable to the USB connector USB iPod charger iPod. Connect the other end of USB cable into your iPod's own socket on the bottom of the iPod Touch.

3. Plug the iPod into the 110 volt outlet in the battery adapter for the iPod Touch.

4. Unplug the charger from the iPod adapter and the adapter from the outlet when the battery is charged. Unplug the USB cable from the iPod charger and iPod Touch.

Anyone know anything about a beko dcrs76w tumble dryer not heating up? We have changed element & thermostat & cleaned filters etc but its still not working

Here are two ideas that might help, in the United States.
1) Someone sharp with an electric meter should check each and every place that should have electricity and see if there is any.
Start with the plug on the wall.
There should be 3 or 4 holes in the outlet for the plug that plugs in.
Two of the 3 holes, or two of the 4 holes should show a 110 -115 volt availability.
The other one or the other two are ground.
If only one shows current, you have a fuse or circuit breaker that is blown or "popped".
This is because one of the 110 volt lugs or wires makes the motor and controls work, and the other 110 volt lug is for the heating element alone.
2) If the 2 are showing current, go to the back of the machine and test the machine at it's wire connection.
Then, test each and every wire inside the machine for continuity.
There could be a wire burnt in two, a wire unhooked, a heating element with an "open", or thermostat that is intermittent.
God bless your efforts.

or all blower motors on electric kenmore 80 series 220 or 110 current

Speaking of these United States, here's how that goes.
In this country, dryers are called 220, but they are really 110 twice!
So, on the back of the dryer is a plug with 3 or 4 prongs.
( hope you can get this from my description. )
On a 3 prong plug, the two "slanted" prongs are each hooked to 110 volt p service.
The "L" shaped prong is a ground.

If you have a 4 pronged plug, the two flat straight prongs are 110 volt each, and the "L" shaped and the round prong are both grounded.

FYI: Each of the 110 volt wires has a different function. One powers the motor, the other the heating element.
Be Blessed.

Well, as a rule for electronics:
The United States and Canada use 110-volt electricity.
Most countries outside North America use 220-volt electricity.
Unless your appliance is dual voltage, you need to use a "converter" or a "transformer" to change the 220-volt electricity into 110-volt electricity in order to use a 110-volt appliance.
If your appliance is dual voltage, you can switch it to work on 220-volts, without a transformer or converter.


Desktop units have a selector switch for 110 / 220 volts., which is done away with in the case of laptop one's which sense the input voltage and regulate accordingly.

I think your main concern is just that you have an adapter for the plug to go into the wall outlet.

Hope that helps :)

Charging battaries oversea.

The battery chargers that are included with JVC camcorders sold in the U.S. are designed to operate on power from 110 to 240 Volts at 50 or 60 Cycles AC. All that is needed to use the battery charger overseas is a plug adapter to connect into a foreign electrical outlet. These are generally available from a store which carries electrical supplies.
