What is an electronic low voltage transformer?

Conventional low voltage transformers, also called magnetic core & coil low voltage transformers can be extremely large and heavy, consist of an iron core and two sets of wires. An electronic low voltage transformer, on the other hand, also contains an electronic device, called an inverter, which allows the size of the low voltage transformer to be substantially smaller. Electronic low voltage transformers are very small and light compared to magnetic low voltage transformers, in most ca...

How do I figure out how many Watts voltage transformer do I need?

You need to check how many Watts your appliance operates on (You can find this information on a label on the bottom or back of your equipment, or in the manual). If you can't find this information, you can try to find information on amperage (AMPS) of your appliance and multiply it by input voltage (110V or 220V) to arrive at the total wattage. Volts x Amps = Watts (i.e 110V x 0.5 AMPS = 55W).

What is a transformer and why do I need one?

Most good garden lighting works at 12 volts, so you need to locate transformers in the garden or nearest building and use flexible low voltage cable from the transformer to the lights themselves. A transformer is an electrical or electronic device which changes voltage from one level to another; in lighting this is usually from 240 volts to 12 volts, which is the voltage at which many garden lighting products work.
