The main purpose of a step-down transformer or converter is to change the 220-volt electric output of an outlet to 110-volt. In the US, no conversion is needed to use 110-volt electric gadgets and appliances because the voltage standard in the whole country is 110 volts. However, you will need to bring a step-down converter when traveling to countries in Asia and Europe. That way, you can safely use your electric gadgets and protect them from overheating.

Voltage transformers are essential household and travel apparatus. They are used for converting the primary voltage into a secondary voltage. They come in two types, namely, step-up and step-down voltage transformers. Step-up transformers convert from low to high voltage while step-down transformers convert from high to low voltage. Continue reading APPLICATIONS OF STEP DOWN VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER
People who need to convert a 220v electric output to 110v use a step-down voltage transformer or converter. This allows them to safely plug in and use their 110v electronic device. You probably won’t need it in in the US since the electrical system or requirement here is 110 volts. However, you will find this type of voltage transformer handy when traveling to 220v countries like those in Europe. Why? Continue reading WHY YOU NEED TRANSFORMER CONVERTER 220V TO 110V?
If you are in the market for a transformer then you will probably come across the terms ‘step up’ and ‘step down.’ Basically, a transformer can either bring the voltage ‘up’ or ‘down’ depending on requirements. If you want to power up a machine that runs on 110 V in an environment with an electrical supply of 220 volts, you will need a ‘step down’ transformer to make it work. Since the machine requires 110 volts by design, you have to supply it with the same voltage input—thus, your transformer needs to bring the 220 V supplied by the mains down to 110 V. Continue reading AN OVERVIEW OF TRANSFORMER CONVERTER 220V TO 110V
Transformers are designed to increase or decrease the voltage coming from the electrical source. You can either step the voltage up or step it down. The voltage from the main lines to your domestic or commercial electrical lines depends on the country that you are in. If you already want to power up and safely use appliances and other electrical devices that does not have the same voltage input rating as your local electrical source, what you need is a transformer.
