Basically if I get the EHU (on sale for €50 on sale in Halfords 😀)
What can I actually run? Will it only run a travel kettle, charge devices? What kind of toasters and lights are people using?

We have used a travel cool box and charged devices. Camping light.
Not household stuff.

Thanks wolfiefan

I might price camping light, I think they only run low volt travel kettles? That's why I wondered how people run toaster ect?!!

most electrical things are fine, at the tent end is normal sockets (not sure of the voltage ect)
We use ours for a toaster (£5 value from tescos), still use the stove for boiled water but toast takes forever!
Other things are charging phones and a heater if its really cold.
Some people use hairdryers/straightners/kettles ect.

We've got an electric cool box (quite a big one), we also charge phones and my electric wheelchair.

We also have lights specially designed for ehu so they don't 'draw' too much..

It wouldn't hack a kettle or powerful fab heater or oven but I do have low voltage ones.

Thanks for replies!

I like the idea of the light, toaster would be handy for feeding DS's! Plus charging devices! Would be even better if I could boil travel kettle!
I run on coffee😀

Thanks Bishop!

I will have a look around!

Lights, chargers, coolbox, kettle - get a low powered one - often the cheap ones are low power - so it doesn't trip the circuit.

We use a normal heater and kettle, just not at the same time!

Yes I think I ll try and get a loan of a travel kettle and cheap toaster!

Would a CPAP machine run ok with EHU?
