The prices on the Maplins UK site can usually work out cheaper then on the Irish site – especially when the value of Sterling is weaker.
Maplins was launched by two technology enthusiasts in 1972 who were frustrated by the lack of good quality electronics components.
Maplin Electronics quickly became the experts’ choice, with a reputation for the best product range and expertise. Though the company has grown massively since launching over thirty years ago, its reputation as the UK’s only true experts in consumer electronics is still at the heart of Maplin Electronics today.
Maplins have six stores in Ireland – but you will usually get more choice and better prices online .
