    I recently moved from a high voltage (240v) country to a low voltag
    country (120v). I brought along my home stereo system and some othe
    small appliance that requires the input of 240v, to reuse thes
    appliance / tv/ stereo in a low voltage country i bought step u
    transformer from a local hardware store. HOwever, one thing i a
    worry about is whether or not there are potential dangers fro
    constantly using a stepup transformer ...hope the expert here ca
    give me some advic
  2. Should be fine if the transformer has the capacity (watts) to handle your
    equipment. If it does not, it might get hot and be damaged.
