The maximum Watts from your power supply is simply the voltage, 230v, multiplied by the Amps, 10 for example. Sometimes using electricity in your tent is essential, especially if you want to heat your tent in the cooler months. The parts of the campsite with powered pitches (electric hook up) will have power supply bollards dotted around the area for campers to plug into. This will be a nominal 230V, single phase, 50Hz supply, which is compatible with UK and modern European caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents, folding campers and tent hook-up connections.

Keep all electrical equipment off the ground and be prepared to stop using electricity when conditions are damp.

Tents are slightly different, as there is no electrical input socket so instead you connect the female end into a mobile mains unit which works much like a power adaptor. As avid campers and outdoors enthusiasts, we love to mention and link to various products and gear we use. I bought a 25m extension lead to use with my 15m roller EHU unit, and had to use it only once in over 10 years of camping under canvas.

However, a 230V mains appliance taking a 1A supply from an invertor will require 20A from the battery, which can cause the battery to discharge rapidly and overload the 12V wiring system. The mounting holes are then blanked off by some caps so as to prevent inadvertent contact from the internal wiring. This guide takes you through using electric hookups, and what appliances you could use when camping, as well as a hand table to work out how much power you can use. We sell a wide range of heavy duty extension leads and accessories, from standard household extension leads to three phase leads used in heavy industry. And having seen what you can use an electric hook-up for, here is our handy beginners guide to EHUs.I don't know about straighteners or hairdryers (I couldn't be bothered when I'm camping) but I can run an electric kettle which is an ordinary value range tescos job. If you need to, always use weather-proof connectors and keep the connection off the ground – to avoid water getting inside. I see you can run hair straighteners and hairdryer, I only intend to use one at a time but can you tell me how I find the kW on hair straighteners. This is by far the easiest way to power your television, laptop, hairdryer or even microwave on the go. I reckon your emphatic recommendation of camping hook-up cables versus domestic cables is misleading, and should be reconsidered.

You probably shouldn't be running the hair straighteners and the grill at the same time, but the fridge and charging portable gadgetry is going to be nowhere like these numbers. A generator can be used to provide a 230V supply where a hook-up is not available, but this route is not without its drawbacks and safety issues. Although it is a little more expensive, we recommend the Outwell Mains 3-Way-Roller Kit with USB and Light. Whether the site provides modern or a two-pin connection, there is always the possibility that the electrical supply will be wired differently (double-pole) where both live and neutral are disconnected with the switch, unlike most UK wiring where only the live wire is disconnected (single-pole). There's no such thing as a stupid question Richard :-) In the UK, all electric hook-ups will use the same 3-pin connector, irrespective of power rating.Generally the least expensive generators will be the noisiest units, but even the quietest generators used on a quiet tranquil site or at night can cause disturbance to your neighbours.
