Product Details

Large 1KVA Power Transformer

The 1KVA transformer converts 220 volt electricity (Korea) to 120 volt electricity (North America).  It accommodates both 2 and 3 prong North American plugs (A & B).  It is appropriate for higher power items such computers, televisions, and curling irons.  It has enough juice to power several items through a power strip as well as long as the items do not exceed the voltage limits of the 1KVA transformer explained below.  To determine if it is the right device for your electronics or if you need the extra large 3KVA transformer, please view the information below.

Electrical Power & Voltage in South Korea

South Korea functions on 220 volt electricity.  The outlets are round, and equipped to accept a plug with two round prongs about 2 cm apart, like these:

Type C Korean Plug and Socket, 220 volt,

Type F Korean Plug and Socket, power conversion, power transformer

Items with built in transformers, or that are designed for 220 volt electricity

Some electronics have power transformers built in to them (ie. most laptops, some battery chargers). Such items only need a plug adapter to function properly if the user is coming from a country with different plug shapes.   An adapter simply allows the user to plug the device into a different socket type.  Please see the adapter chart below to see which TAS adapter is right for you.

Items that do not have a built in transformer, and are designed for different voltage electricity:

Other items do not have built in transformers and actually need to a device that will convert the power from one voltage to another (ie. 220 Korea to 120 North America).  Universal adapters from stores like the Mac Store or Radio Shack are expensive and usually do not have the capability to power items that use any significant amount of power (ie. hair dryers or game consoles).  Plugging a device into the wrong voltage without a power transformer will damage the item and is a major fire hazard. provides the power transformers and adapters you need at a price that will not break the bank.


120 Volt Plug Adapter

The 120 volt plug adapter enables customers to plug 120 volt items (North America) into Korea outlets 220 volts.  Warning: plug adapters do not convert power, and should only be used with items that have a built in power transformer (ie. laptop computers).

Drinking tap water in South Korea is not recommended. 

Even though it is said to be potable in some areas, Koreans use sophisticated and expensive water filtration systems that cost $300- $1000s of dollars. 

Water filter pitchers are somewhat difficult to find in Korea, but are an affordable and sufficient solution for those only planning to spend a year or two in the country.  Of course bottled water can be purchased in every grocery store and convenience store, but taking a walk to the corner store early in the morning or late at night because there is no drinking water is a major hassle.  Buying bottled water everyday becomes quite expensive and is tough on the environment.  Spending a little bit of money up front will end up saving you quite a bit of cash and a whole lot annoying trips to the convenience store. makes ordering new filters a breeze.

The Brita water purifiers:

-Eliminate 98% of lead, benzene, mercury, and copper in the water
-Reduce chlorine, bad tastes and odors
-Prevent bacteria growth in filter
-Reduce sediment and water hardness
-Each filter has a 40 gallon capacity (181 liters).  It is recommended to change the filters every 2 months. will continue to provide replacement filters for your water pitcher.

"Friends don't let friends drink from plastic bottles."


Sometimes it's just nice to use things that are familiar in a foreign place... like a fork. 

Sometimes living in another culture can get to be a little bit tiring.  The simple comforts of familiarity and home can really make a difference.  If you don't love the idea of using chopsticks 100% of the time,this fork, spoon, and knife set might be exactly what you need in your apartment.

Give yourself a bit of time to get your chopstick skills up to par and in the meantime enjoy somethiing a bit more familiar at home.

Tracking down western utensils can be somewhat difficult in a place where they are not ordinary. 


-3-piece stainless steel utensil set.

-Set includes a fork, knife and spoon.

Each utensil set is sold seperately.


Get your kitchen started off in style

It is always difficult to know what will be provided by an employer or be left in an apartment by the previous tenant if anything.  We often hear stories from newly arrived expats about the odd and mismatched items they find in their ktichen cabinets. 

The stories usually include something like: "I had one chopstick, one mug, and a serving bowl that all came from different sets." 

TAS dish sets are simple and white.  Best of all, they match and will be a good foundation for you to start your kitchen off with!


-1 plate (24.2cm diameter,2.8cm tall)

-1 bowl (16.2cm in diameter, 6.6cm tall)

-1 coffee mug (350ml, 8.6cm in diameter, 10.8cm tall)


-Porcelain dish set
