100V Step Transformer

Hello,

Looking to add a NTSC-J N64 Console to my (very limited) collection.

I know these operate on 100/110V (as do the US i believe) but here we use 240V, I need to know if anyone could recommend a Step Up Transformer that would work best and give the lowest risk in damaging the system due to incorrect voltage?

Thanks!

It will run in our power sockets however our sockets pump out 240V, into a device design to take 110V, overvoltage won't damage the N64 straight off the bat but will significantly lower its life span over using the capactiors with 130V constantly.

Just looking to get a looong run out of one.

Not even sure what the overall shelf life of a unit is?
