Re: buying from thestates
Any converter should will work as long as it produces at least a 75 watt output, it really only takes around 50 watts at peak but better to have to much power than not enough. As for someplace cheaper I would suggest you try ecogro.com they are one of my sources for grow equipment and have the best prices. not much you can do about the shipping charge, sorry. Good luck and happy gardening.

<p>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. <br />
<p>1. Place the 220-110 voltage converter card (aka, "Step
Down Transformer") next to a 220 volt outlet. Plug the adapter into the
outlet. <br />
<p>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. <br />
<p>3. Plug the iPod into the 110 volt outlet in the battery
adapter for the iPod Touch. <br />
<p>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. <br />
How to convert an American lead will depend on where you are. You can buy a universal adapter at most travel stores, but first of all consider the local supply voltage. US power is delivered at 110 volts. Australia, Europe and much of the world have a 220 to 240 volt supply. Connecting a 110 volt machine to a 220 volt supply will create smoke and potentially flames - I've seen a number of disasters. Some machines are made to operate across both supplies. Check the label on the back of the machine, near where the power cable plugs in. If it reads 110 - 220 volt you should be OK. Your local Brother dealer should be able to supply a local market power cable for you. They cost around $30 in Australia.
If it is an electronic or computerized machine, you are out of luck. USA has 110 volt 60Hz current, Australia has 220 volt 50Hz. A transformer can change 220 to 110 volts, but it cannot change 60Hz to 50Hz.
If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU.
Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this
is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the
same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if
you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be
destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt
by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire
with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole
15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on
#14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be
changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be
plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code
requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be
disconnected simultaneously. OR USED A Quick 220 Voltage Converting Power Supply Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that
convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the
world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A
step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way
converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to
110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110
volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage
converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes
including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000
watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.
engagetek, This would be a very easy thing to do if and only if the label on the rear of the unit has printing similar to my GATEWAY LCD. It states as follows: "100 - 240VAC input 50/60hz." If your Amstrad unit's label reads "220-240VAC 50/60hz only, then you will need to reverse engineer the "ac to dc" power supply, be it an old "linear" or a modern "switch-mode-power-supply" type. You did not state what type of monitor technology your Amstrad is. CRT, LCD, Plasma,???? I would guess that it is a CRT type. Well anyway, I hope the info was of some use. Bye for now, I'm louie12fix on fixya
You can buy a transformer which allows all 110v power tools to work from a 240v supply. You will also need to change the plug on the compressor to a yellow 110v type. You can buy transformers for around £25 and around £3 for the plug
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.
