Watch the video above to see for yourself why ACUPWR transformers are the world's safest, most energy efficient, and most reliable!

 

ACUPWR’s Tru-Watts™ AJ-500EUD is a 750-watt/volt amp step up/step down voltage transformer that converts 100 volts to 220-240 volts and vice-versa, thereby allowing appliances and electronics that require 220-240-volt AC to work in Japan, where the voltage is 100 volts, and for appliances and electronics requiring 100-volt AC to operate in 220-240-volt countries and regions. appliances to work seamlessly in Japan. All transformers come with a NEMA 5-15R Type B power output and an IEC C13 receptacle for use with a C14 power cord and any type of input plug.

 

ACUPWR offers power cords with the following plug types: Type F Schuko plug (used throughout Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East, Africa); Type M plug (South Africa), Type G fused BS-1363 plug (United Kingdom), Type B plug (Philippines, Peru), Type I plug (Australia, New Zealand), Type J plug (Switzerland), Type D plug (India), Type H plug (Israel), Type L plug (Italy and Chile), and Type K plug (Denmark).

 

Customers chose their desired power cord using the options on this page. If you’re unsure of the plug shape in the country you’ll be using the transformer in, please refer to our plug chart.

 

The AJ-EUD series, including the AJ-500EUD, is ideal for using Japanese voltage products such as the Panasonic SD-BMT1000 breadmaker (sold only in Japan) and fixed-voltage hi-fi equipment (such as those manufactured by Luxman) in 220-240-volt countries. Conversely, 220-240-volt products such as Bosch and Miele appliances will be at home in Japan.

Why You’ll Love It…

 

American-Made Quality

The AJ-500EUD and all ACUPWR voltage transformers are manufactured in the USA with premium components that include copper wiring and silicon steel cores. All of our products are assembled by hand and bench-tested well beyond their stated wattage to ensure safety, reliability, and years of service.

 

Tru-Watts™ Power means "No Two-Times the Wattage" Rule

ACUPWR Tru-Watts™ voltage transformers are guaranteed to deliver electricity at and beyond their stated wattage capability. You would think this isn’t a big deal, but compare ACUPWR transformers with our foreign-made competition: they recommend that you buy transformer with twice or even three times the wattage capability--a rule of thumb common known as the "Two-Times the Wattage" rule--because their transformers are famous for breaking with loads that are well under their stated wattage, and also catching on fire and overheating (see our video above). With Tru-Watts™, offered only by ACUPWR, you only need to buy the transformer that offers the wattage capability required by your appliances. 

 

Thermal Protection Sensor

The key to our Tru-Watts™ capability is our proprietary thermal protection sensor. This feature serves as an overload breaker by detecting excessive heat caused by a wattage or voltage overload, and consequently turning the transformer off. The unit returns to operation when the overheating dissipates (approximately 30 minutes). Because of this 

Our thermal protection sensor makes ACUPWR the safest alternative to our competition's overload protection, which relies on an ordinary glass cartridge fuse that, as the above video demonstrates, often does not blow when their transformer is overloaded. Definitely unsafe!

 

Lifetime Warranty and Customer Support

ACUPWR products come with a lifetime warranty, up to $10,000 of damage protection, and ongoing customer support.

 

The ACUPWR Tru-Watts™ AJ-EUD series is also available in the following wattage sizes:

 

750 Watts/Volt Amps (the AJ-750EUD model)

1000 Watts/Volt Amps (the AJ-1000EUD model)

1500 Watts/Volt Amps (the AJ-1500EUD model)

1800 Watts/Volt Amps (the AJ-1800EUD model)

No 2x the Wattage Rule!

With ACUPWR voltage transformers, there’s no need to buy a transformer with more wattage capability than you need. Our products work continuously as stated in their wattage. Unbelievably, you can’t do this with our competitors; the rule of thumb when buying a foreign-manufactured voltage transformer is to buy two-times the wattage you actually need. Therefore, if your microwave requires 500 watts, our competitors will suggest buying 1000 watts. Why? Because the transformer they actually label as “500 Watts” will stop working well before it reaches its wattage limit due to poor construction and quality. With ACUPWR, you can buy what you need!

 

Goes Above Stated Wattage if Necessary

The ACUPWR AJ-500EUD can operate at 20-percent beyond its stated wattage IF NECESSARY, such as in the event of a power surge or inrush voltage. In such an instance, It’s nice to know that that wattage “cushion” is there. Please note that we don’t recommend using an appliance with wattage requirement that is beyond what’s stated on the transformer. (Doing so can void the warranty.)

 

Thermal Protection (No Fuses!)

ACUPWR voltage transformers use a thermal protection circuit that detects excessive heat caused by an overload. The circuit automatically turns off the transformer and restarts the unit when it has returned to normal operating temperature.  

 

Lifetime Warranty and Customer Support

The AJ-500EUD and all ACUPWR transformers come with a lifetime warranty and continuous customer support. We encourage our customers to contact us with any concerns or questions about our products. Our response is timely, courteous, and supportive.

 

Versatility and Dependability

ACUPWR’s AJ-500EUD and all of our transformer models can be used in any interior setting and environment, whether it’s your bedroom, a garage, a manufacturing space… wherever. They’re built like tanks and can handle dust, heat, and moisture, and they’ll keep chugging along—quietly!—under heavy duress.
