| Choosing the right step down transformer: Please Check these important 5 questions before purchasing your step down transformer:
1. What is the total watts used by appliances to be connected to the Transformer?
Select from our Step downs transformers based on how many watts your device uses.
Choose the transformer rated above your devices watts usage.
E.g: Playstation 3 uses 380 Watts so you need the 500 watt rated stepdown transformer.
2. Does your appliance have a motor ?
If a motor is included then you should select a stepdown rating approx 25% higher than your motor as a buffer.
Motors have a higher power use on the stepdowns and startup currents which need to be allowed for.
Most motors have a rating plate on them with their Power and Amperage rating.
3. Does your appliance have a mechanical timing device?
If so, how critical is this timing device?The Transformer cannot change the Frequency. It is 50Hz
If a timing device is included the speed of the device may change due to the frequency change, 60Hz to 50Hz (eg old clocks, motors / fans/microwaves ) Most modern electronic devices should not be affected. Read more
