There are products called Step Up transformers/Step Down (Voltage Converters) that can be used. We use these For our 220VAC Australian manufactured lasers when we need to run them in a Dr.'s office that only has US 110VAC.

Info from a website:
Electrical voltage in USA is 110 voltwhereas; the voltage in most of the foreign countries is 220V to 240 volt. A voltage converter / transformer, also known as power converter are usedto convert electricity coming out of the wall to match the voltage of yourdevice. These Voltage transformers or converters can be used safely withRefrigerators, Microwaves, Juicers, Blenders, Coffee makers, Power Tools,Stereo Systems, TV's, Video Games, DVDs, Hair dryers, Chargers, computersand other electronics when travelling abroad..

Remember to leave at least a 100-percent margin for power surges/spikewhen buying a transformer. Some items, such as Televisions, computermonitors spike when you turn them on. For these products you need to buy avoltage converter transformer that is at least 3 times the items capacity.Power tools, laser printers and heating appliances like coffee makers,toasters, microwaves, Halogen, Fluorescent bulbs you must leave a marginof 3-4 times.

Voltage transformers are made to convert single phase 110 or 220 volt.American 220 Volt consists of 2 phase of 110 Volt and European 220 Voltconsists of 1 phase of 220 volt.

Volts x Amps = Watts (i.e. 110V x 0.5 AMPS = 55W). Please make sure not torun any appliance with higher wattage then voltage transformer's wattage.This might damage both: your appliance and the transformer!

I hope this helps.

I'm going to Italy. Is it dual voltage?


Italy uses 220 volts, 50 cycles alternating current (AC). If your appliance works on both 110 or 220 then IT'S dual voltage and should work. If it only runs on 110 then you will need a voltage converter to use it on 220.

If you are in Australia and ordered this item from the US, it is only made to be used with 120V. The voltage in your country is 220V. If you attempted to use the item, you have fried the charger due to the excessive voltage. Misuse is not covered under manufacturer warranty.

Warranty information was contained in the user manual that came with the unit. Follow the instructions there to contact the manufacturer.

Power supply different voltage supply will it work in Australia


Unless the power supply is a multi-system* type, the unit will not work in Australia without major modifications to suit the mains voltage. The differences between USA and Australian voltages are significant. We use a higher voltage rating for appliances than America does, and appliances made for Australia operate at around 220-250V AC.

In order for it to function correctly and safely in Australia, the power supply would need major modification, which can prove expensive, and often impractical.

Hi...i have an New Revlon Hair dryer which was bought from US to INDIA n it is not working due to the difference in Voltage to that of US i guess....So could you please suggest me is can i get i repaired...


The voltage of the dryer you are having is 120 volt as compaired to the voltage in India 220~230 volt AC at 50 hz
You can use a simple thyristor voltage controller which will work out cheaper.
If not a step down transformer is needed to bring the voltage from 230~120 V.
As a transformer is expensive then it is possible to get the conversion done with a voltage reducer- solid state.

Hello, I have a wonderful Dirt Devil vac for my carpets, model 140000; love how it works to get doggy hair off my carpet! But, I have a cute canister model for my laminate floors and it uses the Q bags, but they are no where insight to get or order. Can you help me with this dilemma?? Anna
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You should be able to get the bags @ your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area but if not contact the Royal factory cust serv and they will get you in touch with the parts dept and they can mail or ship out the Q bags from the factory. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Electiricty Conversion


Hey marafioti14,
Without knowing exactly which camera you have what you most likely need is either a voltage converter, or a travel charger for your specific battery. Both of these products are for sale on BestBuy.com and at our Best Buy™ stores. I've included a link to some of those products on BestBuy.com below.

Sensor Bar


well i don't know about australia, but you can easily get sensor bars on the internet (heavy shipping costs?). if that isn't possible try a store that sells games like walmart. along with video games there should be a few accessories on the shelf.
