Using an electric hook-up at the campsite

electric hook-up

Using an electric hook-up in your tent, campervan, caravan or motorhome may seem daunting the first time you use it but once you get used to it, you’ll wonder how you coped before!

Using an electric hook could mean a few more home comforts on your camping holiday. Just think cold milk with your breakfast, a heater to take the chill off, a quick boiling kettle or toaster and the ability to charge your phone!

So, what is an electric hook-up?

An electric hook-up offers you electricity in your tent, motorhome, caravan or campervan with the help of a mains connection cable and a few sockets.

Using an electrical supply cable, you’ll receive an electrical supply just as you would at home. Most campsites now have hook-up points – just ask for a pitch with access when you book.

But it’s important to understand that caravan and camping hook-ups are designed for light power loads only.

Low-wattage appliances

We stock a range of low-wattage appliances that will keep your trip safe and hassle-free including a selection of camping kettles for use with an electric hook-up.

Alongside your kettle, you might also want a toaster to complete your morning breakfast. We also sell a range of low-wattage electric toasters that are designed to draw less power than your conventional toaster from home.

We stock a small range of electric heaters that are suitable for low-wattage supplies such as on a campsite. Most of these heaters have adjustable heating settings and are ideal for the cool evenings at the campsite.
