What this is:
This device allows you to run a 230 Volt Vapor Rino off of two household 115V outlets. This Instant 230V Power Supply allows you to create 220/240V by combining two ordinary household (non GFI) outlets on independent circuit. This allows you to run the 230V Vapor Rino in your home without having to install a special outlet or buy a generator. Instant Power when you need it. Access to 230V volt power is made easy, fast and safe without the heat and weight of an expensive large generator. More information below.
How it works:
This instant 220 Power Supply uses two outlets (120 V) from two different circuits that are out of phase and not controlled by ground fault interrupters (GFI's). The Quick 220 Power Supply has built in circuitry to test for the out of phase circuits. When you are plugged in right, an amber light will illuminate letting you know you are ready to go. A separate, included tester is supplied to check the outlet for a GFI. Most buildings have numerous outlets that meet these two requirements.
What can I use it for?
Works great with out 230 Volt Vapor Rino Steam Cleaners. Other Applications include technical equipment, computer servers, power tools, international appliances, air conditioners, air compressors, and exercise equipment.
These converters can deliver 220 and 240 volts at up to 15 amperes or a total of 3600 watts (depending upon voltage 'in') from your existing 110-120 volt standard outlets. No longer do you need to search for an accessible 230 volt outlet when traveling with your electric vehicle charger or portable professional equipment, or pay an electrician hundreds of dollars to have one professionally installed in your home. Now, you can have 220 volt power when and where you want it and without costly permanent installations.
Our instant 220 voltage converters make it simple and convenient to power a Vapor Rino steam cleaner, air conditioners, computer servers, technical equipment, air compressors, or any other 220-240 volt device without the hassle of having to relocate it near an existing 220 volt line. If you’re using a portable device like professional cleaning equipment, welders, or electric vehicle chargers, you know that not every place you visit has a free 230 volt outlet. Using our voltage converters, you can power all of the mobile equipment you need for your business.
Best of all, there is no bulky box taking up space. These 220 voltage converters are small, portable, and light weight. Each adapter unit measures 6.5in x 5in x 3in and weighs less than 4 pounds so it can be tucked out of the way near the device you are powering or packed up and taken to the job site with your equipment or on the road with you as part of a mobile charging setup for your electric vehicle.
What you Need to Know Before you Buy...
This system works great with a 230V Vapor Rino. That said, if you are going to use this 230V converter to power one of our Vapor Rino
Steam Cleaning systems there are few things you should be aware of.
1) Extension Cords: When using extension cords use the RIGHT SIZE. Use heavy duty, 12-3 AWG extension cords (or
heavier) with 3 prongs. This would be for the cords used to plug into the two 120volt outlets to provide power to the instant 230V
converter. For the 230V output side, if an extension cord is used it should also be 12-3 or heavier.
2) Maximum Power - Don't Share: The 230V Rino's run close to maximum wattage with a Vapor Rino. When plugging in your converter be sure ALL OTHER ITEMS on those same circuits are turned off. You will need all the available power from both 15 amp, 115V outlets to run this machine. Having other appliances turned on will take power away from this system and may cause you to trip a breaker. Turn off or unplug all items in that part of the home that on the same circuit before using this system.
3) Non GFI Outlets Only: You cannot plug this converter into a GFI outlet. Most of the time you can identify these outlets by the
'reset' and 'test' buttons on the outlet itself. You will most often find these GFI outlets in a kitchen or bathroom. The converter
will not work off of a GFI outlet. Just plug it into standard 15 or 20 amp outlets. You can use the INCLUDED tester to see if an
outlet is GFI or not.
4) Cycle Time - Rest: When running full power it is recommended to "rest" the converter from time to time. See specifications
for more information. Full power at 80% on, 20% off (time), 3 hr. max. It may be a good idea to turn off your machine for 10
minutes after every 60 to 90 minutes or so to let the converter rest. Also, keep your converter out of direct sun light and never
cover or enclose the converter. This will avoid overheating.
5) Low Voltage Location: If your location has low voltage coming into the home it is possible that this system may be under
powered for use with a Vapor Rino. Voltages below 105V and possibly 110V may have issues. This is not definite, but is possible. You can buy a cheap voltage tester to see what your outlets are putting out. Anything over 115 Volts is great.

Editors Notes: I love this instant 230V converter! It allows me to use my 230V Rino at home anytime I want. After about a year of using
it both at home and in the warehouse we have found this to be a powerful tool and a must have. If mine ever does wear out, I will
positively buy another one! It is worth every penny. My Rino heats up fast and keeps on chugging at full steam with this converter. This system really has made my life easier in this area.
Diversity: This unit also has many uses. About 3 years ago I purchased a welder. I did not have a 230V outlet so I settled for a 120V
version. It works okay, but its under powered. If I had known about this converter I would have purchased the more powerful machine. If
you need instant access to 220/230/240 volts this could be the answer you are looking for. This system is great for running a variety of
220V equipment. You can of course buy a generator or installing an outlet at your location but this system is a great way to get the
results you want, fast. Even if you do get a generator or install an outlet, this unit gives you the freedom to take your Rino almost anywhere. The bottom line, I give this amazing little converter top rating. All the thumbs up and gold stars I can find, go to
this great little device.
