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!

    I have carpentry power tools(100v) from japan and the highest wattage is 1140w, is 2000w transformer enough? and can it be used for my other tools which have lesser wattage? and how much? thank you.

    • John says:

      Hi Leomel,

      Since these are tools, we usually recommend using at least 3-5 times the wattage.
      You can definitely use other tools that has lesser wattage, but not all at the same time.
      We’ll send you our recommendations through your email. Thanks.

  12. Angela says:

    Hello. I have a 120 v 60 Hz KitchenAid Mixer that has a maximum wattage of 475. What transformer can be used for this without any problems?

    • John says:

      Hello Angela,

      We would recommend multiplying your wattage by 3-5 times.
      So that will make it to our MEIJI ratings of 1500-2500watts.
      Although I noticed that you require a 120V, we do not recommend our MEIJI Transformer to be used for 120V. Thanks.
