The first converter that works with high-end styling tools. This unit is designed to work with high-end styling appliances (i.e. straighteners, curling irons and hair dryers). Conventional converters were originally designed for use with electrical appliances such as hair dryers. Many high performance styling tools, including hair straighteners, were not compatible because they operate with more advanced electronics. This unit is designed to work with high-end styling appliances (e.g., straighteners, curling irons and hair dryers) as well as regular styling appliances. Appliances that operate on 110/120V will not work in most parts of the world where the voltage is 220/240V. Your InfinitiPRO by Conair converter makes it possible to use your portable appliances almost anywhere in the world.
Low Setting for shavers, battery chargers, etc. Medium Setting for beauty tools. High Setting for hair dryers, etc.
Includes 4 polarized adapter plugs and travel pouch.
Simply set the LOW/MID/HI switch, plug the converter into the wall outlet, plug your appliance into the converter, and turn on your appliance. All appliances have a wattage rating marked on them-check before using.
LOW WATT SETTING: For use with battery chargers, electric shavers, radios, curling irons, etc., that are less than 25 watts. The low setting can be used for long periods of time on products with electronic circuitry that is rated 0 to 25 watts, e.g., battery chargers, radios, etc.
MID WATT SETTING: For hair straighteners and stylers, rated from 26 to 450 watts.
HI WATT SETTING: For clothes irons, steamers, some hair dryers, etc., rated from 451 to 1875 watts. The high setting is designed to be used only for short periods of time (approximately 30 minutes).
A. SELECT PROPER WATT SETTING-Check appliance¿s rating plate for wattage. If wattage is not indicated, simply multiply voltage by amps, e.g., 120V x 3 amps =360 watts. Then set selector switch to the appropriate setting.
B. INSERT CONVERTER INTO WALL OUTLET-The pins on your InfinitiPRO by Conair converter, along with those of the four included adapter plugs, will fit most foreign wall outlets. Please see ADAPTER PLUGS.
C. PLUG IN YOUR APPLIANCE-Plug your 110V appliance into the outlet on the converter.
ADAPTER PLUGS-In some countries you may encounter a recessed outlet or other types of wall outlets that the pins on the InfinitiPRO by Conair converter do not fit. The set of four adapter plugs included with this converter will adapt to most electrical outlets worldwide. If only using the adapter plugs, be sure your appliance's dual-voltage selector switch, when provided, is in the correct voltage position before operating.
Precautions: Before using the adapter/converter, check the product you intend to use for the manufacturer's voltage and/or wattage rating, which should be located on the product. Adapter plugs alone do not convert voltage. To avoid damaging your appliance, do not use without a voltage converter. Do not leave converter in the wall outlet when not in use. Please do not continue to use the adapter/converter combo if it is not working properly, if it has been damaged, or dropped in water. Some appliances may operate a little more slowly when used in foreign countries operating on 50 cycles (U.S. operates on 60 cycles). At times there may be a very low humming sound in the converter, appliance, or both. This is normal. Due to unstable voltage in some foreign countries, if your appliance has a built-in thermostat, it may shut off your appliance prematurely. This does not mean your appliance or converter (or both) are not working properly. After your appliance cools down, it should resume operating properly.
