Around 20 - 30 minutes to do the same job as plugging the kettle into the mains. An older style, large element, kettle would be quicker than a modern jug kettle with a smaller element.I found that flag in the road, can`t remember the celebration but nearly every car had a flag hanging out of the window and this one obviously blew away so I picked it up suppose it was stealing by finding even with a transverter I don`t think my battery would have boiled an electric kettle.

Stealing by finding?
Sorry, I am from the States.
I drive a shuttle bus, in the States, and I once found 8 rupees in my bus. Although it sits on the dash where some lost and found items are, no one has yet claimed it.good explanation, It was actually in the road in the lane outside my house so I did stick it in the hedge just incase it was a local kids but the guy next door told me it had fallen from a passing car so after a week I removed it. Out of interest someone put a very good bike over my field gates, I chained it up to prevent it being stolen( poss for the second time) in the end after a couple of weeks I phoned the local police station and was told that a van would come out to pick it up. When the guy arrived he was rude to say the least and wondered why I had bothered phoning and bothering them I couldn`t believe my ears and told him that there was a better chance of the rightful owner getting it back if it was logged with the police. I reckon it had been stolen from the local town about 5 miles away by somebody who didn`t want to walk home (one bus per week in our village)
Years ago I was a bus conductor for a while and found a roll of notes( 200 quid) on a seat in the bus, I informed the driver to stop at the bus depot as we passed so that I could hand it in to the counter staff because the person who lost it would be worried. (we are talking 1963 so that was a lot of money in those days) we were running late and as I got off of the bus I was greeted by a very irate man who was complaining that we were running late and he had been waiting for us as he more or less knew where he had lost it. So I refused to hand it over and he would have to prove to the counter staff that it was his. He offered me a few swear words and stormed into the depot. Makes you wonder if it`s all worth while sometimes.
