In some countries, the voltage can fluctuate more than a few volts. In many areas, “brownouts” are very common. This occurs when the voltage dips so low that lights actually dim considerably. For most appliances, this is worse than if the voltage just completely shut off. Often, when this low voltage condition returns to normal it is followed by a surge of power (watts), which can damage electrical appliances.
To protect your valuable electronics, we offer high quality voltage converters with voltage stabilizers built right in. Our Type 4 and Type 5 voltage transformers keep the output voltage stable no matter how much the input voltage varies. If the condition becomes too extreme, these high quality voltage converters will simply shut down, protecting your appliances.
A Voltage Regulator is a device that stabilizes voltage. In many places in the world voltage fluctuates. A Voltage Stabilizer or Regulator maintain a steady voltage, so your electric appliances can be used without a problem. Our Type 4 and Type 5 Voltage Converters come with a Voltage Regulator. They perform 2 functions at the same time. They convert the electricity from 220 volts to 110 volts or 110 volts to 220 volts and also stabilize or regulate the voltage.
A Voltage Converter or Stabilizer is required when using your electronic appliances in countries where voltage is not stable. Many countries are supposed to be 220 volts or 230 volts, however the voltage often fluctuates. As long as it is within a safe range the voltage stabilizer or regulator will hold it steady at the desired output of 110 volts or 220 volts. If the voltage gets to an unsafe range then the voltage converter will shut off. We normally recommend voltage stabilizers or regulators for anyone that is using high value electronics or appliances. We also recommend them for anyone that will use in any country where the voltage is not stable. This includes many countries in Asia, most countries in Africa and some countries in Europe.
