    Stupid question time. I have a 2016 Alhambra fr and in it is a 230v euro socket that can cope with 150w. I'm trying to find an adapter that plugs into it (socket is like the 6 sided shaver plug) that converts to a uk 13 pin socket, but even the dealers are struggling tbh.

    Any ideas?

    I bought a plug/lead from Maplins.
    2.5a 250v. KP-4190 Kawasaki. HO3VVH2-F on cable.
    It's around a metre long with a figure of 8 plug on the other end (standard radio type plug)
    Hope that helps

    Bit of an update in the inverter. Finally got time to make up a lead and give things a go. Roaring success and it charges an iPhone beautifully. Next stop to try a laptop charger in the coming days.
    Good that the socket in the car lights up when plugged in too



    Made the lead long enough so that it just tucks out of the way under the seats and can't get crushed by baggage when we go away

    Do you use yours much?
