Can anyone advise me where to buy a 12v kettle from. It could be extremely useful on motorway service areas where gas ignition is not allowed.

we had one years ago - prepare for a very long wait - they are very slow to boil even a single cup!

 

think we got it from a motor accessories shop. they are ok if you plug it into the car for half an hour before you stop . and are happy to drive with hot water sloshing around. .

 

you could buy an inverter and use a low wattage model - this may ruin your battery though !

 

I'd pay the 2 pounds per cup in the services.

We always fill up a flask with hot water for the drive down to Dover for fresh cups of tea.

Hi There

 

THe 12 volt do take long to heat up. However Lidl were doing a 12 volt vacuum flask - you could put the water in at the start of the journey and then it would be nicely heated by time you stop for a brew. Just a thought of an alternative.

Just as a matter of interest - where do we find out if 'gas ignition' is not allowed - we regularly stop in 'lay by' areas of service stations and have never seen a sign forbidding the use of gas - I am fully aware of regulations in the refuelling areas. :)

Thanks for your interest, but I presumed that at all Motorway Service Areas (total area) we were forbidden from using gas ignition.
