STEP UP/STEP DOWN TRANSFORMERS
Whether a tourist or for business, it can greatly enhance the trip if you take along your favorite small appliances including hairdryers, laptops, cell
phone chargers and any of the other dozens of electrical appliances that we might use everyday.
WHEN TRAVELING TO THE STATES. It’s much the same story as above. The tourist or businessman can use a Philmore travel voltage convert-
er so that he can use his appliances on U.S. voltage without damages or worry.
WHENEVER TRAVELING one travel converter will do the job for your country’s appliances. Just be sure to pick one that is “big” enough (has a
high enough wattage rating) to do the job. How do you do that? Simply add up the wattage listed on each appliance that will be connected at one
time. Example, if your hair dryer and portable coffee maker each have a 700 watt rating (and you will connect and use them both at one time),
then you have a total of 1400 watts. So, you need the 2,000 watt unit to get the job done. (If you were to run only one of these at a time, the
1,000 watt unit can get the job done nicely.)
Very small items, such as your cellphone charger, will be fine with the smallest of these converters. But if you will be operating your laptop, a pro-
jector and perhaps a public address amplifier as well, you will want to add the wattages together to be sure that you have selected a big enough
unit.
Wattages still too big? That is unusual, but you can always use more than one converter if you exceed the 2,000 watt model.

How do you use one? It’s
easy; just set a switch to
“USE IN USA” when in the
United States or set it to “USE
IN JAPAN” when in that coun-
try. Then, just plug your appli-
ance(s) into the converter;
just like home.
