Shops to buy electrical equipment/tools in Budapest/Hungary


Anyone have any experience with buying stuff like electrical outlets or tools in (central) Budapest preferably? Looking for shops to visit, preferably in Budapest. Going there this summer. Appreciate any answers, also from anyone knowing of any decent Hungarian webshops for the same.

Cheers,

dogs

There one thing you may be aware that in Europe area the voltage and HZ is diffrent than what you see in North Americian side for starters.,,

the normal voltage { line to netural } is 240 volts
The colour of conductors for line useally brown and netural is bleu

Websites for Hungarian I do not know so try to goggle it maybe it will give you some hit with it.

Bon Chance { good luck }

Merci,Marc

Hi and thank you for the suggestions, however I'm in Europe as well and I know the Hungarian system is compatible with mine. From what I have been able to find online prices are like 1/5'th to 1/10'th there (probably goes for many 'eastern' countries) for identical items so I'm planning to combine vacation with a different kind of 'shopping'

So, any hints would be good, the problem is that there doesn't really seem to be many websites in English and although Google Translator works to some extent it's just not the same. So I'm thinking a "real" shop to drop by and look at the goods would be the best way to go, preferably with a website that I could check as well.

Appreciate any feedback, no matter what

I bought an electrical outlet in TESCO when I was in Hungary. But they are really a department store, and not exactly the kind of place where I would be looking for bargains on bulk purchases of materials.
