COMBINATION TRANSFORMER/CONVERTER (aka Autoverter)

This autoswitching voltage converter combines a 50 watt transformer and a 2000 watt solid state converter in one unit. It is the easiest to use converter/transformer for travellers who take multiple appliances on the road.

The autoverter automatically senses the appliance wattage load and switches between a 50 watt transformer for electronic and motorized appliances rated up to 50 watts maximum and a 2000 watt solid state converter for non-electronic heating appliances rated up to 2000 watts maximum.

Use with electronic and motorized devices such as:

  • Battery Chargers
  • Camcorders
  • CD/MP3 Players
  • Cell Phones
  • Contact Lens Disinfectors
  • Digital Cameras
  • Electric Shavers
  • Oral Hygiene Devices
  • Radios
  • Sound Machines

Use ONLY with NON-ELECTRONIC heating appliances* such as:

  • Beverage Heaters
  • Clothes Steamers
  • Coffee Makers
  • Electric Blankets
  • Food/Bottle Warmers
  • Hair Dryers
  • Hair Roller Sets
  • Heating Pads
  • Hot Plates
  • Incandescent Lamps

While this does have the continental Europe (B) plug built in, you will need an extra adapter to fit into recessed outlets you might encounter, as well as the appropriate plugs for other parts of the world.  Follow this link to determine what adapter plug(s) you will need.

Overload Protection
If an overload condition occurs this autoverter will automatically shut off, protecting the converter and your appliance. To restart, simply unplug the converter and allow to cool, then plug back in. There are no fuses to replace.

Cautions:

Do not use with electronically controlled heating appliances including: coffee makers, irons, electric blankets, hair straighteners, etc., that use digital timing/temperature control circuits or have "auto start" or "auto shut-off" features.

This device only accepts two-pronged plugs.

This product is not designed for continuous use and should be removed from the electrical outlet when not in use.
