Voltage converter, step up 100 to 220 V/3000W 2020/2/1 06:54
I want to use a European 220V/3000 Watt device in Japan and need a voltage converter (step up transformer 100 to 220 V/for 3000 Watt; no, a simple plug converter will not do it as the device only runs on 220V..).

Can you recommend an electronics store that sells a converter for that wattage? I did not find it in my country or they are for US (110V to 220V).

I bought one in Akihabara in one of the electronic appliances stalls right outside the station. Itfs like an old market building.

You can always try to go to Edeon, which have TONS of things like that with any electrical devices. Even just some basic malls have stores that have those kinds of electronic shops, or just a regular electronic shop that you can find.

What are will you be staying in? You could probably even just do a google search for those kinds of things sold in local stores.

Dear Motti and LikeBike,

Thanks a lot for your advice! @Motti: do you really think it is so easy with 3000W? While the are many offers for low Watt in my country (in that case for step up as I use Japanese devices back home), I found it difficult to find one with high wattage.

What are you trying to use that requires 3000w? That's pretty high and sounds like an industrial machine or something.

If you're really looking for a special converter, I would probably try to check online in places like rakuten or even amazon to find the converter you want. That way you know exactly what you're getting.

You are never gonna find step up transformers for 3000 watts.

@justmyday: this is what I found, but it is 110V, not 100
