This is the one I am told I need.

But I am looking for a cheaper one that does the same...

Any help would be appreciated...

Suggest you ask your electrician, or, better still, let them supply it. You will have warranty and anyone living n the house will have the peace of mind that they will not be incinerated in a house fire. This is a piece of kit for a part P electrician, not an amateur and requires notification to the Council Building Regs dept that it has been tested. Like others have found on here, buying cheap parts can simply result in a high cost for labour. In the event of an insurance claim, you may even find you are not covered.

I guess that your garage will be supplied by a 2.5 twin & earth radial cable on a 16/20A MCB - I'd look at downrating the 32A MCB to something matching the supply.

4mm SWA I think. But yes, it would probably trip in the house long before the shed.
