A very compact and lightweight converter to carry while travelling overseas. I have used it with my battery, cellphone and camcorder chargers. Also I have used it with my Shaver and toothbrush. I have owned it for two years and have used it on my trips to Europe and Asia. It has a thermal fuse which protects it from overheating. It is very reliable and has never failed on me.

I cannot deal with a bad hair day. Even while travelling I must carry my own hair dryer & hair straightner. This converter worked great for me while holidaying in Europe & Asia. As per instructions I used it on the High setting for both the Items. It also worked great with my husband's shaver & iPhone on the Low setting. We were impressed that such a lightweight converter, worked so well for all our gadgets. We highly recommend this converter for travellers.

I've been using this model of travel converter for over 5 years, traveling all over the world. I have only a few 110V US items that I carry with me, the most important to me is an RCR123a battery charger. It has yet to fail me. I use just an adapter (not a converter) for my laptops and other items that have power supplies capable of handling 100-240 Volts at 50 or 60 Hz.

I paid $25 for mine, so the shipping charge doesn't seem terribly out of line. I would like to get it for less, of course.

The Amazon description for this product (Simran 1875 Watts International Travel Voltage Converter SM-1875) says: "Ideal for Hair Dryers, Phone, iPod, Camera Chargers and Shavers Etc." But except for the hair dryer, most appliances listed don't even need to use a voltage converter overseas. Check with the hotel of your destination to see if your room is already equipped with a hair dryer. If that is the case, you'll have two less items to pack for your trip.

This 'travel voltage converter' is actually two different converters built into one package. At `LO' setting (0-50W), 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 50W (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.

Having gone through part of the reviews here, I guess some users might have misunderstood the application of this converter.

If you want to use your ELECTRONIC devices operated with a rechargeable battery (such as your iPhone, cell phone, ipod, ipad, laptop, digital camera) in a foreign country, you don't need to bother, because nearly all these electronic products are designed today to be completed with a battery charger suitable for a voltage range from 100V to 240V; in other words, people travel around with these electronic items, so these items should work properly at any voltage anywhere in the world. Whatever you have and wish to use in a foreign country, just carefully check the marking on the battery charger about the voltage rating ... if the voltage rating is printed or embossed as "100-240V", then don't worry, you can use your devices without such a converter. Another thing you should check is if you will need a plug adapter for that country, because there are quite many types of power plugs in the world. For example, if your laptop's battery charger has a U.S. type power plug, you cannot plug it directly into a wall socket in Australia or in the U.K., since the pins and the slots do not match.

I also brought with me two laptop's, a cell phone and an SRL digital camera from China (at 220/240V) and have been using them here in the U.S. (at 110V) for almost half a year ... everything is okay as perfectly as they worked in China, because the battery chargers can work at any voltage from 100V to 240V. In this case, I only bought a plug adapter, so that the 3-flat-pins plugs (Chinese standard plug) of these battery chargers could be inserted to the wall socket here in the U.S.

I think , The guy that said Do you really need a converter like this, is right on track.

By even allowing this item to be listed and sold, in my opinion Amazon is letting us, the consumer down. It is clear to me Amazon`s master is the seller. And in my opinion this seller is marketing a product that can't possibly live up to the description. It would take magic.
This device weighs 1 pound!

Since the picture is poor and the supporting information is almost non-existent all you have is the description, plus your own intuition.
Recognize this devices has two parts one for the power coming in (220V at about 9 amps) and one for the power going out, 120 V at about 18 amps. This about the same power a circuit from a breaker in a modern house, 20A.

I am puzzled by the people that say they used a hair dryer with the convertor. I casually looked at the 5 star ratings, most don't indicate the amount of power used by the hair dryer, or most of the other devices.
We read theses reviews and, well, depending on how bad we want the device to be good, we will often disreguard the complainers and the bad reviews.
We neeed to pay closer attention.

I didn't see a positive review that gave specifics for power used. This would make a person think the 5 star reviews probably used, well a lot of the advertised power available, but who knows? But once you read Do you really need a converter like this, you can understand what the reviewers are using is small amounts of power.

Calling this thing an adapter confuses most people, it causes them to think of their cell phone charger or lap top charger. A big laptop charger is 200 watts. Most are smaller. 1800 watts is 9 times the power of a laptop charger!
