Anyone know where in Cyprus to purchase a car cigarette socket mains converter for the purpose of using it away from the car on the mains instead of the car battery to blow up swimming pool floats etc. Also other articles needing blowing up.

Regards.

Do you mean a simple cigarette lighter with one or two USB sockets so you can charge phones etc from?
If so almost any of the electrical or telephone shops sell them from about Ä5 to 10 a chuck.

Steaks, or something like that, next to the fire station in Paralimni.

I got mine in the past from ebay or amazon.

Work well but obviously drains the battery pretty quickly.

Hello Carts320, went online via link to Amazon and it appears to be all inverters which I am at a loss with. I think that it is a mains converter/adapter that I am looking for ie something to plug the cigarette plug into a socket on a mains converter or adapter to take the pump away from the car.Not using the battery.
Regards.

Having just read your update, depending on what amps the item will draw will depending on what power supply you will need, if itís a compressor then most likely around amp, 5amp and above power supplys are not always cheap.

Maybe this is an option?
