Are We Nearly There Yet? Everything You Need For A Stress Free Staycation This Summer
Ring Automotive has not only pre-empted summer motoring scenarios, but addressed them with a range of innovative accessories to ensure the start of your holiday goes without a hitch.
Henry Bisson, marketing manager, Ring Automotive says: “with around 30% of Brits expected to take their main holiday in the UK , and with the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics on home turf this year; more and more people are choosing to stay put. If you are planning on jumping in the car for a break in Britain this year, then we’ve compiled a list of motoring must-haves.”
Don’t get deflated, instead make sure you are pumped up and ready to go! Under inflated tyres will not only slow you down but will cost you more in fuel. But forget queuing at the forecourt to check the pressure, thanks to Ring Automotive you don’t even need to leave your driveway.
The RAC630 Automatic Digital Air Compressor, from Ring Automotive can inflate a tyre in 3 minutes flat! Featuring a pre-set pressure mode with automatic cut off, the compressor means you can apply precise pressure.
Compact and complete with its own handy case, the compressor can go on holiday with you, without taking up valuable luggage space. If you need to use it at the roadside there is a high intensity LED light as well as a Red SOS light to draw attention. Ring Automotive compressors are easy to use and powered by the cigarette socket; choose from a range of award-winning compressors. Prices from £12.99 to £59.99.
Let me Entertain You
The cries of ‘are we nearly there yet’ and endless games of i-spy in the confined space of a car are a parent’s worst nightmare. But now you can concentrate on the driving, safe in the knowledge the kids will be entertained for hours.
Portable games consoles and MP3 players are brilliant for keeping the kids quiet until disaster strikes and the battery dies. Now you never need run out of ‘juice’ as with a Portable Powering you can have mains power straight into your car. The ultra slim design of the MP:120 Compact Inverter, (in car adaptor) from Ring Automotive includes a flexible coiled cable so it is tucked out the way. With a plug point and a USB charging point, you can keep two children continually entertained simultaneously! Simply plug into the cigarette lighter and let the endless entertainment commence!
Ring Automotive inverters convert power from your cigarette lighter into domestic (3 pin) and USB supply. Prices start from £34.99
Light Up Your Life
Whether you’re arriving at your destination in the dark, in need of an emergency stop or searching for something in the boot of the car, an LED torch can become a traveller’s best friend. The Cyba-lite Lightstar torches from Ring Automotive are compact, tough, high spec and energy efficient. Available in four sizes and battery powered or rechargeable, these torches have high intensity LEDs producing up to 275 lumens of output.
The RT5166 Cyba-lite Lightstar 120 retails at £29.99 and even has SOS signalling. With an energy saving dimming control switch, it is lightweight and water resistant, so you can take it anywhere and everywhere.
In Case of Emergency
But not everyone will be staying on home soil this summer, so if you choose to escape to Europe, then you’ll need to pack the necessary emergency essentials. High visibility vests are a must-have in most places, and from 1st July this year, you’ll need to pack a breathalyser if you are travelling to France. Otherwise:
• When you head abroad you are legally required not to ‘dazzle other drivers’.
Luckily the RCT1250 Beam Convertor converts left hand drive headlamps when driving in Europe and costs just £7.99
• Packing a BU027 Universal Bulbs kit £10.99 will give you peace of mind. A bulb kit is compulsory in Spain but recommended for travel across Europe to help keep you safe
• A warning triangle is a legal requirement in most European countries and the RCT1300 triangle and stand is compact and lightweight and will fit easily into the boot of the car retailing at £10.99
• GB stickers (RCT 1100) are compulsory across Europe but at 99p they won’t break the bank if you break for the border
Wherever you are off to this summer, make sure you don’t forget the motoring essentials. To see the full range of Ring Automotive products visit www.ringautomotive.co.uk
