Determine the type of plug on the Chinese appliance. If the appliance has a type-I or type-G plug, plug the appliance into a type-A outlet adapter. If your Chinese appliance has a type-A plug, no adapter is needed.
Plug the Chinese appliance with the attached adapter, if necessary, into a 220 volt to 110 volt power converter.
Plug the power converter into a U.S. outlet.
Turn the power converter on. Your Chinese appliance will now work with a standard American outlet.
