The VCSB combines a 50 watt transformer and a 2000 watt solid state converter into one unit. For use with North American personal appliances while traveling in countries with 220-240 volt electricity.
A convenient selector switch allows use with electronic and motorized appliances that require 50 watts or less and NON-ELECTRONIC heating appliances* that require 2000 watts or less. Includes the round pin European appliance plug**. To determine if you need additional adaptor plugs see Voltage Valet's Country List in the Electricity Guide section.

If an overload condition occurs your converter will automatically shut off, protecting the converter and your appliance. To restart, simply unplug the converter and allow to cool, then plug back in. There are no fuses to replace.
* Do not use Model VCSB with electronically controlled heating appliances including: Coffee Makers, Irons, Electric Blankets, Hair Straighteners, etc., that use digital timing/temperature control circuits or have Auto Start or Auto Shut-off features.
**IMPORTANT: An additional European adaptor plug, type "B" (PBC-1), is required to fit recessed sockets found in most countries in Continental Europe.
