ELECTRICITY

Converter or Transformer?

You may be bringing something electrical that runs on 110 volts. The electrical system here is 220 volts. There are two kinds of devices that will convert 220 to 110, but be careful, a converter can damage your electronic equipment. Both devices are readily available in Dominica, can often be purchased used, and you probably will just cause yourself trouble by getting anything before you come.

You can spot a transformer when you see one. It's contains a lot of iron, it's heavy, and its expensive, but it is what you must have for electronic devices including battery chargers as well as computers or stereos. Transformers come in various sizes ranging upward from 50 watts. The price rises steeply with size, so check your stereo and see what you really need before you spend your money.

A converter is a little plastic box about 1 by 2 inches. Converters are usually rated at 1600 watts, and a 1600 watt converter costs a lot less than a 100 watt transformer. However, converters are only suitable for operating motors or resistance heaters - blow driers, si, TV sets, no! Actually, you don't have time for television, so go ahead and connect your TV to a converter and it won't bother you anymore. (Converters are just voltage choppers. They do not produce the sine wave output needed by electronic devices.)

Clocks designed for 110 volts will not run with either a converter or a transformer. Clocks depend on the 60 cycle frequency of 110 volt systems. 220 volts systems run at 50 cycles per second and transformers don't change the frequency. Your 110 volt clock will run 20% slow no matter what you do.
