If you have a combi boiler then the best solution in terms or a reliable and powerful shower is to buy a thermostatic shower mixer valve and connect this into the hot water pipe from the combi boiler and the cold feed. It will be far better than any electric shower on the market.

First you should check as to whether your combi is capable of providing a supply to a shower, not all of them do. If it does and your cold water supply pressure is checked to be ok, then fire away with a combi shower. If your combi does not support a shower, then a high KW (10.5+) electric shower, would be the way to go, as long as your incoming water supply pressure is ok. Please do be aware that your existing electric supply circuit may need upgrading.
