    Ebuyer have their 'Kebo' 650VA UPS devices back in stock:

    Product ID 64165 = £25.00 inc. VAT (black)

    Product ID 62752 = £23.49 inc. VAT (beige)

    And there's also a 1000VA version at a mere £39.99 plus delivery (Product ID 62750). Delivery comes in at around £6-£7.

    www.ebuyer.co.uk

    But it gets better; if you're quick, you can get a Belkin 4-way adapter with an IEC male -> 4 UK Mains sockets for £6.77 delivered from Dell (search for F6C104UPP at Dell's online shop). Goes well with the aforementioned :smashin:

    You're right but their cheapest shipping brings this to £9 odd. Dell's are shipping free right now (and on tons of other cables too).

    Kebo's on sale at a local car boot, I bought one last week,
    found the problems(!) and tried to take it back today,
    told seller who has a electrical returns stall says he buys
    his stuff ''off the pallet''

    Told seller about fire risk, everything has a risk he says...

    I contacted ebuyer last week who said it would not/could
    not be one of theirs.

    Well when I had finished talking with the vendor I had a
    shuffle through is stock, most units had labels removed
    but I found a few still with, although someone had tried
    to cover up the identity of the original owners etc.

    My eye sights a little bad, can anyone tell me what it
    says on these labels in these photos I took only a few
    hours ago.........

    Indeed it does. Alarmingly though, above that it reads REF: PRODUCT RECALL.

    I would imagine both Ebuyer's and your own regional trading standards officers would be interested to investigate this one.

    > there is no confirmation that the electrical item is one of theirs and
    > when the seller at the Car Boot sale was confronted the following week,
    > he informed you that he buys electricals off the pallet and any

    So, no one cares...............

    I replied to the above email and sent them again the link to the photo's of the labels.

    If he is a "professional car booter" then local trading standards, the inland revenue & the VAT man may be interested (depending on his turnover).
    So might the Health & Safety Executive.
