Thicko here, have hired Silver Mystique, 23 May for a week.

It states she has a 240v system, and a 12v socket for mobile phones.

At my age, and approaching mid life crisis time lol, could some one

explain in SIMPLE terms what this means, i gather i have to get an

adapter as in a car?, what about video camera charging?

The 12v socket is a Cigarette type you normally find in your car, to plug in Chargers and things, Not often used now to light up.

The 240v system will enable you to plug in all you normal household chargers etc.

I hope that makes sense,

Our boat had a 12V socket, But also had fridge and TV plugged in what looked like veary old electrical sockets, If you think back to the good old days the plugs where small with a large round earth if you know what I mean!!

Is this a 24v supply or are these special marean plugs?

Thanks, Rich
