Contact Us...

Due to the truly pathetic service provided by BT here on Colonsay, as of July 2020, I have finally terminated my BT contract.  However I have ‘ported over’ my landline to a VOiP service.  However, email is my preferred contact method.

I am not VAT registered so ALL PRICES ‘INCLUDE’ VAT!


I am an EV owner and driver of some 12 years and started by converting a Daihatsu Hijet van from petrol engine to electric drive in 2009 (see for further details).  I currently own (amongst other EVs) a Vectrix electric scooter, a Peugeot iOn (Mitsubishi i-MiEV), a Waydoo Flyer One and a half complete replica of an Austin Healey 3000 (and, yes, it will be electric!). 

The principle reason for starting this webshop (in 2015) was to help further the EV revolution by offering EV charging-related items at reasonable prices as well as to offer advice and a repair service for charging cables and related equipment.  

Up to now, I have primarily sold these items only on eBay but the 10% fee is a bit much for me hence this on-line shop.  I do still sell on eBay as it is a popular market-place with global reach but all my eBay prices are 10% more expensive than here in this webshop to cover eBay’s fees.

I am based on the magical Isle of Colonsay, Argyll, Scotland which is 2.5 hours on a RORO ferry out of Oban.

I am not VAT registered so ALL PRICES effectively INCLUDE VAT.

Principally, I use PayPal for payment as this is mutually convenient, secure and reliable.  All the items in this webshop can be ordered using the PayPal payment buttons and their associated drop-down menus on the relevant product page.  To pay, you can either use your own PayPal account or, if you do not have one, you can use any credit card instead but the checkout system is still PayPal’s.

Please note that when using Paypal to buy items, the address the order is sent to is derived entirely from the relevant customer’s PayPal account settings. If you need to alter these for any reason, please advise me by email.  In the case of non-PayPal account customers paying by credit card, you will be asked for address details as part of PayPal’s credit card checkout system.

I can also accept payment by bank transfer.  Please email me what you want and I will email-invoice you with payment details.  I do not have the facilities to take payment over the telephone.

All my items include free UK postage using Royal Mail or ParcelForce (see item description for weight and then Shipping Information section for prices for shipping destinations outside the UK).  All have an approximate 3-4 working day delivery time within the UK but may take as much as 7 days. More remote parts of the UK and destinations outside the UK may take longer.  If you live somewhere remote in the UK which has issues with postal deliveries or which usually is more expensive to post to, please advise me prior to ordering so I can check the postage situation or additional fees may be payable prior to dispatch.

If you live in The Republic of Ireland you may be able to take advantage of the Parcel Motel which uses a virtual UK address for cheaper shipping.

A newer alternative is which has a hub in England.

I aim to dispatch all items within 24 hours of purchase during the working week, ferries permitting - during the summer we have one ferry every day.  During the winter that reduces to Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays (and Saturdays and Sundays but these do not usually carry post).


In general, I am happy to take returns and will provide a refund of the purchase price in full (bar a ‘processing’ fee principally to cover postage and packaging costs - see below) assuming the item is in the same condition as it was on dispatch.  The ‘processing fee’ is less £5 for up to 2kg original parcel weight or £11 for over 2kg parcel weight for UK orders. 

All products have a standard 1 year warranty for manufacture issues which does not (as usual) cover normal (or abnormal!) wear and tear.  Nor is accidental damage covered.  I am happy to assist with issues that may crop up.  The EV world is one which consists of lots of wonderful new technology that is evolving quickly and for those with little technical knowledge or interest the learning curve can be quite steep.  I want to help you to level it.
