Does what it's supposed to
on 15 February 2013
The Skytronic 45 Watt step down transformer does exactly what is expected of it.
The unit does start to smell of "overheated electronics" after it has been plugged in for several hours, although I suspect this might be just "burning off" the newness of the device.
One thing to note that is wrongly advised by the Seller: This device is not actually a "USA to UK Step Down converter" it is a UK to USA Voltage step down device. That is, it converts 240 Volts down to 120 Volts so that you can plug in and use USA devices here in the UK.
The main thing to remember and check BEFORE you buy or use this item is that the device you want to plug in consumes LESS than 45 watts.
For example, this transformer is suitable for USA shavers, electric toothbrushes and Waterpiks but don't attempt to plug in a USA kettle, which would take far more power than this device is capable of supplying!
