200W Step Down Voltage Converter, Allows North Americans To Use Their Electronics Abroad

Step Down Voltage Converter

200W Step Down Voltage Converter – One of the advantages of remote work is the ability to travel. What many digital nomads learn is that there are lots of different power outlets and voltage standards around the world. This converter will allow you to plug in your 120V electronics in a 240V outlet, which are common outside of North America.

Don’t expect to be able to run a hair dryer off this converter, but at 200 watts you should be able to run most of your work-related electronics just fine. When paired with an outlet converter, North Americans should be able to get the power they need when traveling to other countries and continents (but check the web to find out just to be certain).

Many devices will support 240V already. But if some of yours do not, this type of device is pretty much a necessity when traveling abroad. If you do need this, be aware that this thing is quite heavy.

    Most electronics power supplies work with 110/120 or 220/240 voltage, so you don’t need one of these. Just a plug converter. We just spend 3 weeks in Europe (from the US) and didn’t need a voltage convert for notebook, tablets, phones, rechargeable razor… These just aren’t required anymore for most things.

      You’re absolutely right in that many electronics do support 240V already. We meant for this device to be used when you have something that doesn’t. We’ve modified the article to be more clear about that. Thanks.
