Power Power Power

'Dear Santa'

Please can you get someone to injection mould a bog standard 4-way british multiplug trailing socket wotsit with a built-in IEC power inlet?

Thus by downrating to say 10A (hey, this is for geek things not space heating) we can have a simple 'travel adaptor' for all those clunky power brick things that you can simply pick up a single cable for $foreign_locality to fit. (or. more usefully, stick inside a rack to handle any transformers)

I'd do some photoshoppage (sorry, Gimpage) but my photo-fu is weak

Solar off-grid cabin

We have a small cabin on the site that used to have a 200w panel, 65Ah deep cycle lead acid battery, el-cheapo PWM charger to power some LED...
