Charger plug & socket

Postby bluedalmatian » Sun Apr 18, 2010 9:18 pm

Wheres the best place to get a waterproof plug & socket to go between my onboard charger and the mains lead?

The ones they sell at B&Q are the wrong way round - I want the female on the lead and the male on the car for safety.

Ideally Id like a J1772 or IEC 62196. What does everyone here use?

You could try a caravan type place http://www.leisureshopdirect.com/carava ... ckets.aspx

Or any good electrical wholesalers, they woud be the cheapest option.
