Took it to Italy and was able to keep all of my devices (cell phone, iPad, Kindle) charged and used it for my hair dryer and curling iron, it worked great.

States it should work with high voltage items such as hair dryers/straighteners.

The Amazon description for this product (Conair CNRTS1875CKN Converter and Adapter Set) says "Dual wattage converter converts 220V foreign electricity to 110V". This is very misleading, because the voltage conversion only takes place at the low-wattage setting.

This product is actually two different converters built into one package. At `LO' setting (0-25W), it uses a small AC transformer to convert 220V sinusoidal waveform into 110V sinusoidal waveform. This is the preferred approach which works well for any low-power electronic appliance. One obvious limitation is that the appliance's power consumption must be under 25W (most laptop computer's AC adapters are rated for 90W or higher, by the way). If you connect a higher-power appliance to this converter at LO setting, the transformer's iron core will become saturated. This results in runaway input current, which may then cause overheating.

At `HI' setting (up to 1875 Watt), the converter simply uses an electronic switch to 'chop' the 220V sinusoidal input voltage into smaller segments, such that the average power delivered to output load is reduced. This is the same principle used by most incandescent lamp dimmers. It works reasonably well for simple HEATING appliances, such as travel irons or hair dryers. But if you try to power any electronic appliance that is rated for 110V-only at this setting, the high-voltage stress will likely cause the appliance to break down and burn out within seconds!

This is not to say that this product is completely useless, only that you have to be EXTREMELY careful about what you can plug in at each setting.

States it should work with high voltage items such as hair dryers/straighteners. It does not. A horrible smell and hissing sound started immediately coming from appliances.

This was a very good purchased. Took it to Italy and was able to keep all of my devices (cell phone, iPad, Kindle) charged and used it for my hair dryer and curling iron, it worked great. I give two thumbs up.

Works very well but is a bit bulky so that in some circumstances you will need to support it is some way (books, rolled towel, etc.) so it remains in good contact with the outlet.

I bought this for a trip to New Zealand. While it was cheap and worked great, it was really heavy (even with only taking the correct plug). It was great for one trip, but if I traveled internationally a lot, I would buy a better, lighter one.

The unit faired pretty well being used daily with a 1800W dryer. It did get extremely hot, to the point the prongs would singe the skin, but continued to work.

Got to Italy and wasn't able to use and didn't need it on the cruise to Greece. Try different adapters but luckly my roommate had one that did work.

Used it for cell phone charging and curling iron but did not work well with straightening iron. When I plugged in the straightener it would make a sizzling noise and heat to a point that made it impossible to use. When I returned to the states the straightening iron had to be replaced. The converter was also very heavy so it was hard keeping it plugged into the wall without having something beneath to hold it in place.
