Are 110 Volt Tanning Beds Any Good?

What are the advantages of 110v?

A 110-VOLT supply is less likely to electrocute you. A 220-volt supply can transmit the power more cheaply because a smaller current is needed, and so you can use thinner cables and/or lose less energy through heat generated in the cables.

Do tanning beds run off 110?

120 Volt vs. 220 Volt

The Wolff 24 and the XS Power 24 still run on 120 Volts, but require a 20Amp circuit. The standard for tanning beds is 220 Volts, much like an electric dryer or oven range. It is very important to provide the proper power for your home tanning bed.

What is the difference between a 110v and 220v tanning bed?

A 110 volt bed can be moved easily around the home without the help of an electrician. You can’t easily move around a 220 volt system. On top of that, most 220 volt beds need “buck booster” to control the voltage. While 24 lamps light up, this tanning bed is only slightly more powerful than a typical 16 lamp system.

Which type of tanning bed is best?

So to recap Level 1 tannings beds are great for tanners needing to save money or looking for a base tan before a vacation. Level 2 tannings beds are the perfect match for tanners needing extra color in the face and other areas that are hard to tan.

Which one is better 110v or 220v?

Thus, higher current can be more dangerous than higher voltage; however, since voltage and amperage are directly proportional (in conditions that offer the same resistance), 110v wiring is usually considered safer to work with because it uses fewer volts and as such can only carry half as much current as 220v wiring.

Is it cheaper to run 110 or 220?

A quick answer: Probably nothing. This is a common misunderstanding about how electricity works and how the power companies charge you for it. The point often noted for the money saving argument is that the amperage is half as much when running grow lights on 220 volts instead of 110 volts.

Can I plug my tanning bed into my dryer outlet?

If you are looking to create a NEMA 5-20R outlet from your standard home outlet we offer a compact adapter [XH515520] that will do the trick. We can provide a solution for powering your bed using either style dryer outlet.

Can you change a 220 tanning bed to 110?

You can convert a receptacle from 220 volts to 110 volts in one of two ways. The first is to use a 220 to 110 adapter. The other is to rewire the receptacle or install a new receptacle next to the old one and connect it to the 220-volt wiring.

Are sunbeds expensive on electricity?

Typically using 200W lamps that use an estimated 1 Amp of electrical current, the average 40-tube commercial sunbed uses about 40 Amps, roughly equivalent to 9.6kW. Our selection of home sunbeds are different for two reasons.

What is a buck booster for tanning bed?

Buck-boosters lower (buck) or raise (boost) voltage to compensate for these fluctuations. While higher voltage results in more tanning power, you must keep the voltage below 240V for proper operation of the tanning bed.

How do you wire a tanning bed outlet?

Buck-boosters lower (buck) or raise (boost) voltage to compensate for these fluctuations. While higher voltage results in more tanning power, you must keep the voltage below 240V for proper operation of the tanning bed.

Are tanning beds safe?

Tanning beds are NOT safer than the sun.

Science tells us that there’s no such thing as a safe tanning bed, tanning booth, or sun lamp. Just one indoor tanning session can increase the risk of developing skin cancer (melanoma by 20%, squamous cell carcinoma by 67%, and basal cell carcinoma by 29%).

What type of tanning bed gets you the darkest?

While 4-6, referred to as our “Higher Level” beds, tan on the surface level of your skin. They are great for getting you a dark color quickly because they tan the melanin found at the surface of your skin.

What should I look for when buying a tanning bed?

  • 1). Number of Hours on the Tanning Bed. If the tanning bed has a digital timer, most of them have an “Hour counter”.
  • 3). Tanning Bed Acrylics Condition and Care.
  • 4). Overall Condition of the Tanning Bed.
  • 5). Check if they have Proper Electrical Requirements.

What is 20 minutes in a tanning bed equivalent to?

MYTH #5: 20 minutes in a tanning bed is equivalent to 20 minutes in the sun… no big deal! 20 minutes of exposure in a tanning bed may equal up to two hours spent on the beach under the hot mid-day sun without protection.
