What I want is a plug adaptor, like a timer you plug into the socket the plug the device lead in but instread of being a timer you can press for 1hr, 2hrs 3hrs etc.

Would be ideal for many things, plug your mobile in and press for a 2 hour charge, heater or dehumidifier for a 1-2 hour run so its not forgotten, maybe radio or night light for 1 hour when going to bed.

There are so many aplications, I know a times could be used for some things with fixed times but not everything, also I have an electronic timer which has a 1hr boost but its only 1hr not 2, 3 etc.

Something like this:-

http://www.timeguard.com/products/time/immersion-heater-controllers/tgbt6-boostmaster-2-hour-plug-in-electronic-boost-timer

Push the boost button for to select how long you want.

They also do a couple of fused spur versions as immersion type boosters. The TGBT4 which gives increments of 1/4, 1/2, 1 or 2 hours, or the TGBT5 which gives you 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours.

TLC have the TGBT4, so should be able to order any of them for you.

Hope this helps.
