Traveling With Electronics?

Walkabout Converter


Tired of worrying if you have the correct adapter? Tired of worrying if your electronics are dual voltage? We have the solution. The Walkabout Solution® automatically adjusts incoming voltage, whether if you are in a 110-120V country (Like North America) or 220-240V country. (Everywhere else.) Output voltage is always correct for North American products. Even better, the built-in USB port also charges cell phones and iPads, so two items can be charged at once. The built-in adapters work worldwide -- the enclosed Euro adapter even allows for recessed European connections. Indicator lights indicate power status for AC and USB power ports. Protected by a thermal detection circuit, which will shut the unit off if it gets too hot. Just let the unit cool and plug back in. Fuse protected. Tiny and lightweight: Product dimensions: 1.9 x 1.6 x 1.8 inches; 3.8 ounces. USB charging current is 1000mA continuous.

Laptop, smart phone, iPad, Kindle -- it's all you need. No dual voltage worries. No adapter worries.

Confused about international electricity?

HiLo Travel Converter Kit


Everybody is. What converter do I need? What adapter do I need? What's the difference between an adapter and a converter, anyway? Even computer hackers and rocket scientists throw up their hands trying to solve this dilemma. We've solved it. Our Hi-Lo Combination Converter/Transformer Kit is the solution to a problem only modern mankind has faced. Contains a dual circuit converter\transformer with five plug-in adapters which fit almost every 2-pin (non grounded) electrical outlet Homo sapiens has invented. The converter/transformer has a high switch for appliances between 50 and 1650 watts and a low switch for equipment under 50 watts. Accepts 2-pin, polarized equipment. Low setting can be used for items like cell phones, camera or Kindle chargers; high setting is for non-electronic items like hair dryers. Our Hi-Lo Converter/Transformer is the cream of the crop, and contains a safety fuse to prevent damage to appliances. Everything fits into a convenient carrying case. Surprisingly small and lightweight: 5 1/2 x 3 x 2 inches. Weight 14 oz. ROHS compliant. Adapters included: # 300 United Kingdom, # 380 UK Shaver, # 400 Europe, #600 Australia / China, and # 700 North America. (Be sure to check wattage of your appliance before operation. If taking a flat iron, check with the manufacturer as some cannot be used internationally even with a converter.)
