Everyday Practical Electronics is a UK published magazine that is available in print or downloadable format.[1]


Practical Electronics was a UK published magazine, founded in 1964, as a constructors' magazine for the electronics enthusiast. In 1971 a novice-level magazine, Everyday Electronics, was begun by the same publisher. Until 1977, both titles had the same production and editorial team.[2]

In 1986, both titles were sold by their owner, IPC Magazines, to independent publishers and the editorial teams remained separate.[2]

By the early 1990s, the title experienced a marked decline in market share and, in 1992, it was purchased by Wimborne Publishing Ltd. which was, at that time, the publisher of the rival, novice-level Everyday Electronics. The two magazines were merged to form Everyday with Practical Electronics (EPE) - the "with" in the title being dropped from the November 1995 issue. In February 1999, the publisher acquired the former rival, Electronics Today International, and merged it into EPE.[3]

In November 2018, Wimborne Publishing passed EPE and all rights to earlier material, including Practical Electronics, Everyday Electronics, Hobby Electronics (which later became Electronics Monthly) and Electronics Today International to a new publisher, Electron Publishing Limited.

The new publisher’s first issue was January 2019, and from the April 2019 issue the magazine reverted to its original title of Practical Electronics.
