How to use Electronics in India purchased from US | 220 volt to 110 volt converters explained


Hello Guys, Atul here. Welcome to Techobia. In today Video I will explain you the technology
type use for 220v to 110v converters and which type can be used for which type of appliance. If you are watching this video means sometime
in past, now or future you are looking to use such device in India which you imported
from US and It has working input voltage of 110V. So question is what will happen If I will
inject in 220V supply or some of you already tried this. If you are the one who tried it share your
experience in comments what happened. First there are many companies which are building
devices with a supporting adapters to manage 110v to 240v like I am using one with my surface
pro 4. But there are many appliances which are not
available with adapters like this like I have one trimming machine which only support 110v
and class 2 is also written on its adapter so then I started search for some converter
which will help then It would become mess to me. NOw I am using appropriate adapter and i am
making this video might be this information helps someone like me who is looking for such
converters. So in short and simple words, there are mainly
two type of converters one is SMPS based and another is transformer based. SMPS based are for those devices which need
direct current and has no battery connected to it in mid of it like blenders, mixers and
dryers. Transformer based are for the devices which
has chargeable battery inside the devices like trimmers, some electronic brushes and
music players. Now come to the type of converters available
in market, SMPS based are available with load management upto 1600 watt whereas transformer
based are available up to 100 watt where most of our battery based devices need very less
like 5 watt 20 watt. Transformer based are very heavy in weight
compare to SMPS based. Some people think that if they have one SMPS
converter that can also be used for these devices like trimmers. No, they are wrong at this point. They need different converters depend on their
device types. Hope this video is helpful to you. Give it a thumbs up if you like it Subscribe
if you love. Signing off for today. Bye Bye
