Our small voltage converter category is filled with a wide range of units capable of stepping up voltages from 110V/120V to 220V/240V, units for stepping down voltage from 220/240 to 110/120 and some that are capable of going either way, up or down. These small voltage transformers start with low power ratings (50 watt) for use with low-draw appliances like battery chargers or other small electrical items. A European voltage converter that allows appliances made for use in the US to be operated in Europe or other countries supplying 220V/240V electric power are called step down transformers. A travel voltage converter that allows European appliances to be used in the US are called step up transformers.
For those traveling internationally, a lightweight voltage converter that's easily carried is a must. You'll find units here in wattage ratings of 50, 100, 200 300, 500 and 1600. Some can handle any appliances between 50-1600 watts.
