I wanted to look for a new TV for this years camping trips and every single thing on their site appears to be out of stock. .. I will have to give them a call and see what is going on.

I have a friend who purchased one of their TV's last year, tv is ok (ish), but be careful with the 12 lead they supply, it is literally a straight through from a cigarette lighter plug.

 

Also reading his instruction manual it clearly states that tv must only be operated from the supplied power brick.

 

So my opinion is tv ok, but if using on 12volt the use a proper voltage stabiliser and not the cable that they sell for about a tenner

Thanks Phil, That is some help, have you got the exact model number? Although the Kogan one was only £120 :o

I got a 22" Technika Full HD TV/DVD combo from Curries/Dixons last summer, mainly to use as a computer monitor (which it does very well). It also makes a pretty good TV for the van as well. The viewing angle is a lot better than some I've seen and good enough to read the subtitles on NordicNoir. The sound is fine, as far as I'm concerned and it only cost us £120 (normal price is £130) - certainly worth a look. The only thing is that it's 240v only but it works fine from my £15 150watt Maplins inverter.

Have had a Kogan for a year or so now and works fine on the odd occassions we have used. Think you will struggle to get better for money. think our 19" with 3 year warranty was under £120 on one of their promotions they do.

Big name down under as mentioned!

Unless you've tried it, you simply won't understand. .....

Only problem with having to run through an inverter is the added power consumption for the inverter :(

 

We used to run a 22" lcd tv through an inverter and it used to draw just over 5 amps from battery, we now have a Cello 19" LED tv and this runs through a voltage stabiliser and barely draws 2amps :)

I bought a Kogan 19" TV/DVD 2 years ago and have used it on a direct 12v lead (my own) with no problems. The DVD player has stopped working but the media recorder still works. Being an ex TV engineer I found the picture quality only fair and the viewing angle quite narrow. The sound is not good as well so while the price was good at 99 quid with free delivery I would not recommend this product to my friends.

Well there's a letter that says nothing, I don't know what's going on.

 

I have a Kogan, it's a decent TV, thought I would get another, but they have other ideas it seems.

Keep all of your good tv deals coming, I'm looking for one for this season.

Just one thing to note about TV voltages, if you are going to power it from your 12v system those designed to work off 12v tend to have lower power consumption and the ability to run off the fluctuating 12v supply from a caravan, caravan voltage could be anywhere from over 13v down to 11v, the tvs designed to run off a 12 v socket tend to be happier to run from a wider voltage range.

Some 240v tvs that use a 14v transformer for instance and are run from a battery may have a low voltage cut out which operates once the battery supply reaches 12. 5v say leaving you with no picture.

 

Worth checking the tech specs if you are powering the tv from a 12v source or battery with no mains supply to see what voltage range it likes to be in, to answer your question David the 240 only supplies a transformer, the tv is 12 or I think 14 as phil said.

Sleepyfolk the Samsung spec. does not say that it is via a transformer to 12 volt. Buyer beware when TV buying if wanting 12 v/220v models to me they are getting harder to find in normal shops. .

Ok have been asking about the Samsung 22" and if mains only or if mains and 12 volt, well answer came back there are 2 versions.

To see for your selves go to You Tube and put Samsung UE22F5000 in Search and view the unboxing videos.

You will see one with a mains to low voltage power unit and the other with a mains lead going straight into the TV.

So beware when buying and look inside the box before leaving the store if buying.

even tho its a 240 tv it runs off an inverter down to 14v, my mate who works for sky made me another lead to run it from the battery, the battery is always fully charged and we never had any problems with loosing picture or anything else
