Why are you having to do this? It is far cheaper to operate the fryer at 240 instead of 120. If you have to, you won't need an adapter. You will need essentially to drop off one leg of power. I would call an electrician to make sure it is done right because you could burn up the motor.

How do I use this adapter in the US with 220 voltage


is it an 220volt ac - dc adapter you could buy a 110V AC to DC adapter with the same DC Voltage and current rating
or you could buy a 110V to 220 Volt adapter

be careful with switch settings

please be aware if timing is required or electrical motors this could be a problem as usa is 60Hz and your appliciance may be designed to run at 50 Hz frequency
there are devices that can convert freq from 60hz to 50 hz

What is the difference between an adapter and a voltage converter?


An adapter is usually a travel converter that simply allows one kind, size or shape of plug to physically fit the socket.
A voltage converter is a gadget that stands in between the plug and the socket and converts the voltage released by the socket so that the plug and therefore the device itself don't get ruined by the wrong voltage.
These two kinds of converters can be combined and have different converting options, to allow its use in multiple regions.

My nexxtech multination travel adapter specifically says on the label that it will convert 240/220 V to 120/110 V, but when i plug it into a 220 V wall outlet its output is still 220 V. (I know this since...


It seems your adapter is not a converter for Voltage, but just a plug-converter so it will fit all type of sockets. There's a varistor for safety-protection, but that's all there is. At least, that's what I make up, based upon your description and the manual. See http://downloads.thesource.ca/273/2731445/manuals/manual.pdf

If the converter also should have converted 220/240 V AC into 110 V AC, than the electronics inside is damaged. Actually I think it's just a plug-converter, because there are many devices operating with an internal switched powersupply. The advantage of such technique is it can operate at various AC-voltages, whil only an adapter for the correct plug is needed.

I have a Husqvarna Classica 105 sewing machine that I bought about 15 years ago in the US and that I use mostly for mending and alterations. It is a great sewing machine and I had it serviced and tuned up...


The pedal is representative of the peal (which does not need a converter), but it is NOT representative of the motor. You need to examine the name plate of the motor itself.
You will discover that you need a converter.

I need an adapter for a double cassette deck CR-W223U to be able to plug into a outlet for 120 volts. Is it possible to buy one?


If it's not rated for 120v you can't just 'plug it in' unless it has a source voltage selector on it. Otherwise you will need a transformer to convert 120 to the desired voltage AND an adapter for whatever plug type you need. Google "plug converter for (whatever country)"

I'm going to Europe and wanted to know how to convert electricity so when I plug in my computer it won't fry the computer


This is a copy from the Radio Shack site. The quick answer is go to pretty much any electronic store or most travel stores and buy a Foreign Power Converter.

AC to AC Power Conversion (Foreign Voltage Converters) Purpose of Converter / Explanation of Operation AC-to-AC voltage converters, or travel converters, are designed to convert the voltage used in a foreign country to the voltage required for a particular AC device. These converters are either transformer-based or solid-state, and this affects what type of devices the converter can power. In addition to converting the power, you will often need to also use a plug adapter. Plug adapters are generally either built into the converter, or provided as separate parts. They are also sold separately, for use with multi-voltage devices that are designed to convert the power internally.
Selecting a Converter These are one of the more confusing of the power conversion devices. Because of the range of voltages, plug types and converter designs, many customers find that they need help determining exactly which converter they need. To aid in that process, we have put together a short worksheet to help you determine what type of converter is needed: We recommend that you print out thi sheet when taking a number of different devices to a different country.
First, you should determine the electrical requirements (voltage, frequency, and wattage) for the device(s) you will be taking with you. This information is generally on a label or embossed into the back or bottom of the device. Make a note of the voltage(s), frequency or frequencies, and the wattage indicated for each device.
  • The voltage may be given as either V, VAC or VDC. The standard voltage for US devices is 120 V. Devices that are designed to operate using different input voltages will be labeled, such as 110/120 V, or 120/240 V.
  • The frequency will be given in Hz. The standard frequency for US devices is 60 Hz. Devices that are designed to operate using different frequencies will be labeled, such as 50/60 Hz.
  • The wattage will be given in either watts (W) or volt-amps (VA). If the wattage is not listed on the device, you will need to contact the device's manufacturer for this information. If you have the maximum current consumption (in amps), you can calculate the wattage by multiplying the voltage (V) times the current consumption (A).
Next, you will need to know the electrical requirements for the country you are going to be visiting.
Next, you will need to compare your equipment requirements to the country's information to determine whether you need a Step-up or Step-down Voltage converter.
  • If your equipment accepts the voltage and frequency provided by the country you will be visiting, then only a Plug Adapter will be required.
  • If the voltage of the target country is higher than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Up Voltage Converter.
  • If the voltage of the target country is lower than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Down Voltage Converter.
Once you know what type of converter or adapter you need, consult our list of travel power conversion products to find one that meets your requirements.
Cautions
  • The AC outlet in many foreign bathrooms is for low-wattage devices only. To avoid damage to your converter and/or attached device, check with your host or hotel before powering a high-wattage device (such as a hair dryer) from this plug.
  • Do not use a voltage converter with electronic devices such as televisions, VCR's and computers unless the device indicates that it can handle both 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
  • Do not use heating appliances, such as hair dryers, irons and coffee-makers, on a transformer-based voltage converter.
  • Do not use non-heating electronic devices, such as calculators, electric razors and portable audio players, on solid-state voltage converter.
  • Do not use 110-120 VAC Surge protectors or Uninterruptible Power supplies on a 220-240 VAC system. Even with a step-down power converter, damage could occur as the two power systems are wired differently.

Daewoo monitor


If you know a little bit about electronics, then you can find or buy a multimeter to check the output voltage of the AC/DC power adapter (if it uses one, sometimes the converter/adapter is inside the monitor). In order to get a voltage reading from center "hole" of the end of the power cord, use a paper clip (thicker paper clip if you have it). If the converter voltage is good, then this monitor might be a warranty return candidate. Hope it's only a power adapter problem (you can find a replacement on Ebay) ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
