Travellers shaver adapter

Posted on Jun 24, 2012

Many countries have 115 volts mains supplies. This can be a problem if your electric shaver is designed for 220/240 volts only. This simple rectifier voltage doubler enables motor driven 240 volt shavers to be operated at full speed from a 115 volt supply. As the output voltage is dc, the circuit can only be used to drive small ac/dc motors

It cannot be used, for example, to operate vibrator-type shavers, or radios unless the latter are ac/dc operated.
