The Average Brit Spends 50 Grand on Gadgets!
The poll of 3,000 households by Reevoo.com shows that electrical items rarely last longer than six years – and the kettle is the item Brits use and replace the most.
Over sixty years, each household will get through 20 kettles and spend approximately Â£1,000, which works out as a new kettle every three years.
The most expensive item is a home PC, replaced around 4 years at a cost of around Â£500 while the average oven costs more at Â£545, but lasts around 6 years.
In total, Reevoo.com reckons Brits will fork out Â£48,940 on electrical devices over their lifetime.
