    Can you get a y-slitter / twin mains to figure 8 cable?

    As per the title really, I know you can get y-slitter kettle leads for PC's i.e. psu and monitor but I'm after the smaller figure 8 cables???

    Anybody ever seen one???

    Cheers in advance

    Bit silly I suppose but why don't you just use a multiple plug adapter?

    Basically I'm going on a 3 week Safari across Africa in the summer and we only have a single inverter so would be great if we could charge both camera batteries at the same time, as both cameras have external docking stations for the batteries which both need figure 8 cables and I don't want to hog the inverter each night charging my stuff.

    I was kind of hoping i f I could get a y-slitter cable I could plug both docking stations in at the same time and be done in a few hours.

    If you see what I'm saying ,I'm sure this all makes much more sense in my head.

    buy a double plug adaptor from B&Q for about 99p and take both your figure 8 cables with you

    may be what you can use although I did have a quick Google and couldn't find the "figure of Eight" twin. I think it will have to be the Plug twin adapter...Have a great holiday anyway :thumbsup:
