Hi, I hope someone can help me.
I am a student going on my first camping trip to the scottish highlands at the end of August. I'm on a very tight budget and wondered if this would be safe to use?



I would not leave it plugged in overnight or anything and it would just be used for charging tablets, a DSLR camera battery and hairdryer/straighteners. THIS

It is not a good idea to use one of those as doesn't have an RCD (Residual Current Device). Although more expensive it is better to get a proper camping hook up which will protect you from electrical shock, unlike a fuse.

Totally agree with Dandyman Bob.   Have a look at this UKCS advice and consider one of the two three-socket units shown on the page in your link.

That looks OK, though you could probably find an in-line version for a lower price.

Don't think you'd have any problems using the three items you mention at the same time, just don't use more than one high-wattage item (kettle, toaster, hairdryer or any other appliance involving a heater) at a time!

I have read a few times people saying inline ones have problems getting plugs in at the same time and wires getting in the way. So a few people a saw on forums said these shape are better? Not sure im a newbie.

Hi, would anybody have any advice on what to use when using an electrical hookup in france, the campsite has said that the pitches come with a 6amp electrical hookup. Thanks in advance

Try to avoid using more than one high-wattage item (kettle, toaster, anything else with a heating element or powerful motor) at a time.
