1800 Watt Step Up Transformer – Use 127-130 Volts Appliances in USA/Canada AJSU-1800


ACUPWR’s AJSU-1800 model is a grounded step up transformer that converts voltage from the 110-120 volts standard used in the USA/Canada to 127-130 volts, allowing you to use your Mexican appliances in the USA/Canada. (The 127-130 volts standard is also used in Brazil, Bonaire, Curacao, and Suriname.)

Please note: The AJSU-1800 is for using appliances that run on the 127-130-volt standard (such as products made for Mexico and Brazil, et al.) in America and Canada only. ACUPWR manufactures other step up voltage transformers/converters (with similar wattage loads) that can be used for other countries and regions, such as the AU series (110-120 volts up to 220-240), the AJU series (100 volts up to 110-120 for use in Japan), and the AUD series combination step up/step down model (110-120 volts up to 220-240 and from 220-240 volts down to 110-120).

  • Made for home, commercial, and industrial use
  • Converts voltage from 110-120 volts to 127-130 volts
  • Allows appliances running on 127-130 volts (Mexico, et al.) to be used in the USA/Canada
  • Compatible appliances include room A/Cs, microwave ovens, copy machines, and dehumidifiers, and much more (please refer to our transformer guide).
  • ACUPWR products are trusted by military, NASA, and government agencies worldwide

  • Can handle up to 120 percent wattage beyond stated rating (industry standard is only 50 percent)
  • Proudly made in the USA
  • Rated at 1800 watts
  • Type B plug and NEMA 5-15R input
  • CE approved
  • 9 lbs; Dimensions (W x H x D): 3.75” x 3.25” x 5.5”
  • Lifetime warranty, up to $10,000 damage coverage
  • Bench tested for quality assurance and years of reliability

This model is rated for 1800-watt loads and suitable for home, commercial, and industrial applications. Compatible appliances include room A/Cs, microwave ovens, copy machines, and dehumidifiers, and much more (please refer to our transformer guide). The AJSU-1800 comes with a grounded Type B plug and a NEMA 5-15R (input) recepticle for up to 15 amps maximum power. Although Mexico’s 127-130 volts are only slightly higher than the 110-120 volts used in the USA and Canada, the difference is particularly noticeable when using electronic devices.

As with all ACUPWR products, the AJSU-1800 is proudly manufactured in the USA using the best materials available. This includes copper wiring that allows the AJSU-1800 to operate under heavy duress, and in the most heavy-duty situations. Unlike less expensive, foreign-made products using aluminum wiring, our products are designed to last for decades. Each unit is hand assembled in our factory and bench-tested at a full-load (the maximum stated wattage) to ensure years of dependability. Among the AJSU-1800’s features is thermal protection (CTOC); the unit will turn off when overheated.

ACUPWR stands by its products by providing a lifetime warranty and insurance coverage up to $10,000. We count military and government agencies, including NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, among our customers for good reason: ACUPWR products are the most best-made, dependable, and long-lasting transformers available.

When considering which model ACUPWR transformer/voltage converter is best for your needs, keep in mind that our products are safe for continuous power at 120 percent beyond the stated wattage, unlike other products that adhere to an industry standard of 2-3 times higher than the appliance’s stated wattage. So, for example, an appliance rated for 300 watts of consumption would, according to the industry standard, require a 900-watt transformer. With an ACUPWR transformer, you can safely use your 300-watt appliance with a 300-watt transformer/converter; our products, remember, can handle 120-percent beyond their stated wattage handling ability.

ACUPWR recommends that you purchase our Global Surge Protector to protect your appliances from voltage spikes. Additionally, our Global Surge Protector allows you to plug in up to 6 appliances using any plug type, thus ensuring its use anywhere in the world. We also highly recommend our voltage stabilizers/line conditioners, in countries where the line voltage is particularly unstable.
