This product (Eagle Creek Travel Gear Dual Wattage International Converter Set) has two power settings, each one comes with its own limitations.

At the low ('25W') setting, the converter uses a small AC transformer to convert 220V sinusoidal voltage input to 110V sinusoidal voltage output. For low-power electronic appliances (such as battery chargers or portable DVD players) that are rated for 110V AC only, this is the safest way to operate them while traveling to other countries with 220V AC lines. One obvious limitation is that the appliance's power consumption must be under 25 watts (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, the transformer's iron core will become saturated. This results in runaway input current, which may then cause smoke or even fire.

At the high ('1875W') setting, 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. However, 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. Unfortunately, some appliances fall into the grey area between 'heating' and 'electronic'.

I used it on a trip to Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Ireland. Like other reviews have mentioned, it is bulky and did heat up when I used it for a long time. But I dont think you could find a converter that isn't those things even if you tried. This product was a great value and worked to charge my phone, camera and heat up hair straighteners! No blown fuses, no fried electronics.

Used for travel in China starting in Beijing and finishing in Hong Kong. When it takes an adapter on the voltage converter, the weight of the converter is a challenge on a loose outlet. I had to prop up the converter several times so it wouldn't loose electrical connection or even fall out of the outlet. I don't think any other brand converter would have worked any better. I also had another product that was a plastic block that contained several plug configurations that would pop out of the block. It didn't work with some outlets, mainly the slanted plug (Australian type).
