Transformer Box TypeAccording to the Business Dictionary, a transformer is a device that converts an alternating (A/C) current of a certain voltage to an alternating current of different voltage, without change of frequency, by electromagnetic induction. A ‘step up’ transformer receives a low voltage and converts into a higher voltage, and a ‘step down’ transformer does just the reverse.

Meiji transformers allow you to use your 110V of appliance bought or sent from abroad to our usual working voltage of 220V-240V.

Meiji Transformers have the portable type from 50w-750w with plastic handles. Also, it has a fuse as a protective device for over voltage. This will be the initial warning as it blows to inform you or the user that the ampere rating being used is more than the allowable. It also protects your appliance against short circuits and other dangerous faults to avoid accidents like fire. We also have a convenient switch for easier turn-on and shut-off without the need of pulling the plug from your wall outlet.

Also, we have a new feature dual output voltage (100V and 110V) to cater to countries using these voltages (i.e. Japan, etc). All our outlets are also uniquely round to flat (universal) with ground. These features together with our affordable prices make us a leading brand in the stores.

Transformers 50-100WWe have the box type for the higher rated transformers. We call it ST series. It has similar features except our outlets here are all universal (3: 110, 1:100) with sturdier handles. An added safety feature of a circuit breaker is included that would trip to protect your appliance in case of a short circuit and a fuse that will blow when over voltage occur.

You cannot go wrong with Meiji Transformers!

    Hi Apple!

    I have an urgent requirement for stepdown transformer rated 1500va with output voltage of 110V & 100V.
    How much would it cost me for one unit? Where is the nearest place I can purchase your product? I am based here in Sto. Tomas Batangas.Thanks

    • Hello Rudy,
      Thank you for choosing Meiji. Our nearest store pa po is in ACE Hardware Calamba. Please check your email for our price quote as well. :)

  2. hi! i was able to buy a portable aircon, 110V. so i need a transformer. based sa unit, 1200watts sya. May i know if you have any available transformer for such kind of appliance? How much?

    Thanks much!

    • Hello Julie,
      Thank you for choosing Meiji. sure we do. We recommend a 3000VA step-down transformer for your portable aircon. Kindly also check your email for our price quote.
      Thank you.

    • Hi Julie,

      We do have a MEIJI Step Down Transformer you can use.
      The recommended safer practice in determining the wattage you need is to multiply by 3-5 the wattage.
      In your case 1200W, you would need a rating ranging from 3600W to 6000W.
      I’ll have one of my sales representative send you a formal quotation. Thanks, John.

  3. how much is your transformer for a 9W, 110V clipper? i’d like to purchase one. thanks.

    • Hi Ghe,

      The transformer we have is for 50W, from input of 220V to the output of 110V.
      I will have one of my sales representative email a formal quotation asap. Thank you.

      Best regards,

    • Hello John,

      Thank you for your interest in our Meiji products. We are sorry to inform you that we don’t have your requirements as of the moment.

  5. Anne Gutierrez says:


    We ordered a Medela breastpump and Avent 3-in-1 electric steam sterilizer in the US, and both have input of 110V. I checked the breast pump, it uses 10 watts while the sterilizer (which has yet to arrive) is 650W (according to amazon website, where we purchased it). What type of stepdown transformer do your recommend? What is the best model to buy? Please enlighten me on the ST series. Thanks so much!

    • Hello Anne,
      Thank you for your interest in our step-down transformers. Before we can give you a recommendation, may you please clarify if your breastpump and sterilizer has an input or OUTPUT of 110V? Our step-down transformers will convert your OUTPUT to 220V from 110V
      We look forward serving you.

      • Anne Gutierrez says:

        Hi Apple!

        I don’t have sterilizer with me yet since it is in transit, but based on the amazon website, input is 120v 650Watts and 60mH. I’m not sure though if that is accurate since I just read that in one of the reviews. But almost all appliances in the US have 110-120v (input or output?) if im not mistaken.


        • Hello again Anne,
          After asking my relatives, we are correct to assume that input and output are both 110V since this is a breastpump from the US.
          We would recommend for you a 2000VA step-down transformer. :) Kindly check your email for our price quote.

  6. Hi,

    I have an avent steam sterilizer which is 120V 650W and 60Hz. Please advise on the transformer i need and how much.

    Thank you.

    • Hello Ivan,
      Thank you for your interest on our step-down transformers. Please be informed that we recommend ST-2000VA for your sterilizer. Kindly check your email for our price quote. :)

  7. Hi. I acquired a bean grinder 120V, 160W. May I ask which transformer I need and how much? Also, is it available in ACE? Thank you.

    • Hello Ome,
      Thank you for your interest in our items. Yes, we have this in ACE Hardware. May we ask for your location so that we can point you to your most convenient outlet? We recommend you to use a 500W step-down transformer for your bean grinder. Thank you. :)

  8. Anne Gutierrez says:

    Thanks for emailing me the price quote. On last question, do the transformers have warranty? good for how long? Thanks!

  9. hi! i like to ask the availability and prices of the following:

    step-up transformers:
    1 units 500 watts
    1 unit 1000 watts
    2 units 1500watts
    1 units 2500watts
    1 unit 150watts
    1 unit 50 watts

    Will it be available for shipping? if not what branch will be closer to makati area?

    Thank you.

    • Hello Shie,
      Thank you for your interest in our step-dpwn transformers. Please also check your email for our price quote.
      We also have displays and stocks in ACE Hardware Makati. Thank you.

  10. Vincent edrozo says:

    Hi Apple,
    I bought an AC abroad. It is 115V with 930W. The unit was there in Isabela now. Just wondering where I can buy the step down transformer. How many watts of transformer do I need to buy and do I need to consider the amps which is 8.5A. Thanks!

    • Hello Vincent,
      Yes, you may use a step-down transformer for your AC. Kindly use a 3000VA for this. However, we would also recommend that you use an AVR for your AC instead of just a step-down transformer. That way, your AC will also be protected from fluctuations and power surges.
      Thank you. :)

  11. Andy T. Durog says:
