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
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
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, 10-3 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 10/3 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
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.
If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.
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.
