AC Voltage Converters

AC Voltage Converters - Step Up Transformers and Step Down Voltage Converters and much more

Voltage Transformers 

- also called Voltage Converters come in two main types:
 
Step Down Voltage Converters - for using equipment from the USA/Canada/Caribbean etc (where the voltage is 100-120 Volts) in the UK, Ireland or other 200-240 Volt countries. There are several different step down voltage converters available, and the difference is in how many Watts each one can comfortably handle.

Step Up Voltage Converters - for using equipment from the UK, Ireland or other 200 - 240 Volt countries in the USA/Canada/Caribbean etc (where the voltage is 100-120 Volts). There are several different step up voltage converters available, and the difference is in how many Watts each one can comfortably handle.

Power Bright Voltage Converters - While most voltage converters can only be used one way (either they are a Step Up or Step Down voltage converter) - the Power Bright converters we sell can be used either way. We supply the Power Bright converters with a UK plug and we also supply a free plug adapter. So by changing the selector at the back of the Power Bright voltage converter and fitting the plug adapter you can use the Power Bright Step Down voltage converter as a Step Up converter. This means it can be used to power US equipment in the UK or to power UK equipment in the US.
 
If you are choosing a voltage converter for something that will be used continuously - or for long periods of time, you need a converter with a rating substantially higher than the appliance uses, preferably two or three times higher.

If you have a power adapter that automatically adjusts to voltage (you sometimes get them on computer equipment) you may not need a voltage converter, just a plug adapter. Check to make sure your adapter can handle 100 Volts to 240 Volts, if it can, have a look at electrical plug adapters.

Something else that converts voltage (although in a different way) are Switch Mode Power Supplies and in-car power supplies. You can find these here: Power Supplies for Laptop Computers and Other Equipment and AC/DC Adapters.

There are also DC to DC Voltage Converters. These usually change one variety of DC (battery power) into another such as 24 Volts into 12 Volts.

Another similar device is a Power Inverter. This takes the input from a 12 Volt or 24 Volt battery (car, truck, boat etc.) and turns it into 240 Volt AC. the point of this is to allow you to power a mains device using a vehicle battery. You can find these here: Power Inverters.

Yet another device is a Voltage Regulator. This connects to the mains and outputs a regulated DC input (usually switchable).
