At Maplin we believe passionately in a world where connecting people with brilliant technology enriches
lives. We exist to bring those ideas to you, even if you’re not an expert. From voice-controlled light
bulbs, to Esports and Raspberry Pi, we’ve got you covered.
We are always testing and relentlessly improving to get that bit better every day. From free delivery, to
listening to your product feedback and the best deals around - if we aren’t quite there yet, we’d love
to hear from you.
Maplin is striving to empower, inspire and provide solutions with tech. Tech can be a tool, a hobby, a creative
process, an artform… we’re uniting these forms of tech, popping them in a box, wrapping it with a bow, and
calling it Maplin!
You should feel confident in your ability to know what you are purchasing, before you even open your basket.
Through clearly presenting and breaking down all key information, we will save time for those in the know and
empower those without a blinking clue.
Understanding technology opens the door to a world of creative possibilities. We want to tempt you into dabbling
with something new. The bedroom programmers of the 80s helped to revive the video games industry and John
Carmack (programmer for the original Doom) now has his own space tourism company. All of the greats start out
with a bit of curiosity and a dream. We’ll supply the tools to help you build it!
In the modern age, work hours can be long, and the smallest task can become an inconvenience. Occasionally the
technology gods grant us the gift of a product that makes our lives easier… sometimes that product won’t be
suitable unless we purchase an adapter of some kind and we’re left screaming “Why didn’t they include this
adapter in the first place!?”. Here at Maplin, our goal is to provide the solutions you need and make your life
