Hmmm, not sure exactly what this is from the details given, but I'd not want to run anything like a kettle (typically 2 - 3 kw) or a hairdryer (again typically 2 - 3 kw) through a connection to my car's 12v socket, both because of the current loads (a 13amp home appliance becomes a 260amp appliance running from 12V!) and because I'd like my car's battery to be able to start the car afterwards.

If this is essentially an invertor with an extension lead and and RCD then I would expect it to be useful only for low power accessories like phone chargers, maybe a low power TV. Even then you really need a leisure battery or to leave the car engine running if you don't want a flat battery.

If I've got the wrong end of the stick about what the product actually is then sorry, but cold from me.

You run this unit direct from mains hook up on camping sites. Not from your car.discription of item must be wrong.

I think Aldi may have got the discription of this item wrong.
I think its an Electric Hook Up Lead for use in tents, and it connects to a campsites 240 Volt supply. These EHU leads are always around this price in camping shops.
It is NOT an inverter, otherwise it would show the maximun wattage that the device is capable of. You definitely could not run high power electrical items such as kettles, hair driers etc off your car battery, it would flatten the battery in minutes.
