You don't mention why you need this -- as someone mentioned, 220v/7a is
110v/14a.

If this is a piece of electronic equipment, it may be cheaper to simply
replace the power supply with a 110 supply.

If it's something with a 220v motor, you might want to make sure that it
isn't also looking for 3 phase power.  (Not that I really know the
difference -- just enough to know it's something to watch out for).
