October 2018: The DVR2-D and Smart Cut-out have been discontinued. Once again sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. The DVR4 Negative Earth 12V/8A regulator may be used as alternative to the DVR2-D; electrically equivalent in a shallower case style.
September 2018: The DVR2-D (due to availability issues) and our Smart Cut-out are to be discontinued when current stock has sold out. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. The DVR4 Negative Earth 12V/8A regulator may be used as alternative to the DVR2-D; electrically equivalent in a shallower case style.
August 2018: We ask customers, if at all possible, to place orders via this website. This method is more secure & efficient, and less prone to errors than telephone ordering. There have been one or two frustrating issues of late with incorrect or incomplete information being taken over the 'phone.
February 2018: DRL will no longer be open for business on Wednesdays until further notice. Messages and website orders will be processed promptly on Thursdays.
November 2017: DRL introduces a complemetary 'blogging' site (experimental and modest at this stage) entitled DVR Talk. Looking forward to any comments you may have.
September 17th 2017: We Re-Open for business. We have a considerable backlog of stuff to get through, so please be patient as service may not be as quick as usual.
September 6th to 15th 2017: We will be closed for business for this 10 day period (to recharge our batteries!!). We will aim to dispatch stock items ordered by noon on the 5th before shutting up shop. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
August 2017: With Effect August 1st 2017: Following several years of holding prices, despite continuing big component cost increases, prices on most of our products will rise. The increase (about 4%) is equivalent to about 1% per year over the past 4 years.
March 2017: A full range of regulators available. 6 or 12 V, up to 40 Amp output, Field to Live or to Earth, most immediately available from stock.
Despite continuing price increases from various of our suppliers (and as long as our sales continue to grow) we aim to hold our prices. On the positive side, since the value of the pound fell we have seen increasing demand from overseas customers.
July 2016: Higher current (30 & 40 A) and custom current limit versions of the DVR3P 'field to earth' regulator. Now all DVR3 & DVR4 regulators, Negative or Positive earth are available with up to 40 Amp output.
30 A fuse option added and fuse-holder price reduced from £5 to £4. Watch for bigger news to come shortly. . .
March 2016: Back to normal today, 22nd March, more or less. Backlog of orders from our shutdown may delay dispatch of some orders
We will be reorganising the business and unable to dispatch orders or deal with enquiries for the period Monday 14th to Monday 21st March inclusive. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes. Any orders placed during this time will be dispatched promptly as soon as possible afterwards.
Orders placed before Friday 11th will be dispatched normally.
January 2016: We have introduced a Positive Earth version of the DVR4 to suit many US made cars, with Type A field connection Delco/Autolite generators.
The DVR2-D replaces the DVR2-S, with a new data sheet with more detailed information. The rename to -D from -S is more accurate and descriptive of the Dynastart version of our regulator. Furthermore the price is now slightly reduced.
Some European and Further afield postage prices have also been trimmed a little.
The reduced postage rates makes multiple orders made up of any mix of items cheaper. The former more restricted 5% discount on second and further identical items has now been scrapped
