I bought one of these, from Screwfix, a couple of months ago for under £8. How can this be a deal? COLD.

yes I want the 3.1 myself but they're £17 so they wouldn't go down well on here.

These aren't chrome but they are rated at 3.1 amp

£18 for 2 atm but if there is some discount code you can always get a few bob knocked off. Funnily enough they aren't ASTA Approved so I am a bit dubious of their rating/quality.

Excellent info thanks majnu

Voted hot, but agree that 3.1amp is going to be more use for modern devices. They do plain white 2.1amp (shared) version (2 for £15) if you don't need the decorative/vanity aspect of chrome! :p

Hi mate, thanks for link. That's on my list to chase up.

I changed 4 LAP sockets in my living room during July this year, 3 out of 4 broke (won't switch ON/OFF). However, Screwfix compensated me for the poor quality sockets. I would spend my money wisely, few quids more means you won't be changing these within a few months. Avoid.
#19
Review numerous previous posts for reasons why you shouldn't buy these things (including the fact that they are 'always on').
#20
Argos has them much cheaper. No bargain here

Low power so avoid. After buying the 3.1amp version I found that the family would use the newer one avoiding the original 2.1amp we had.

you sir, are a ledge!!!

are those standard UK ones yeah? I don't get the whole amps thing so just need to know that they are what most of us have in our houses X)
#25
I don't know why people keep posting these. 2.1 across two ports, not each. And you have to pay for the USB for standby mode even when not in use. Unlike a real charger you can turn it off for good! Waste of time, and the cost of running them, adds up over the years. Basically paying for nothing!
#26
Does anyone know if there are any with a switched power supply. I dont fancy this being powered all the time

Yeah those are standard UK 3-Pin mains wall sockets, Crabtree are in the same ball park as MK with regards to quality and reliability imho.
Great price for quality and safe wall sockets.

What is the power draw on these when nothing is plugged in? I'm assuming the switch is for the 3-pin power and so the USB ports are like leaving a charger plugged in all the time. I realise it won't be drawing 2.1amps constantly, but there is going to be a residual 'vampire' draw unless you can switch it off.

should I go for plastic back box or metal?

Standby current will be very low, if you want to save power & money then making sure you don't overfill your electric kettle will save significantly more power over the year!!

Would be nice to have the figure though... the value might depend on the manufacturer. Also if you fill your house with these things (and other devices on standby) it starts to add up.

im not well enough informed to know the appropriate use of a metal back box but the plastic type are for fitting to Plaster board type walls, there is a size difference between the two types although they do both fit the same face plates.
