  • Very useful, but not for high-power devices

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    (1) This converter is very cheap. Similar device in my neighborhood is ten dollars, (2) This is extremely simple, light and tiny, good for travelers

    Cons:

    Max current is only 6A. I doubt you can use that convertor for such power-consuming devices as a hairdryer. For example, 1600W hairdryer would require current I=1600W/110V=14.5A, which is more than twice as much as allowed.

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought five of them, and in addition I bought a couple of expensive high-current converters.

    Bottomline:

    Good device for low-power devices
