Hi guys,

I need to run power to my garage. At the moment, I've gotten away with wiring a long extension cable. 13A Plug on one end, cabled to double female receptacles at the other end.

So far that's worked fine as I've only used a LED light and some other low powered items. I just unplug from the house when I'm finished, roll up the cable and leave it in the garage for next time. Got nowhere near 13A.

I now need much more power available in the garage for heaters, tools etc.
I have a medium term plan for this - my back garden is going to be dug up later in the year and I'll be calling in a pro to run SWA from the mains, under the new garden surface and into a consumer unit in the garage.

My question is this - is there an easy way for me to temporarily run more power to my garage, in a similar fashion to what I'm currently doing? One piece of equipment will be drawing over 15A alone.

Any advice would be great. Thanks.
