Great price, I normally buy the 3 pack which is usually £20 so 2 for a tenner is pretty sweet.

Nice spot OP But why the cold votes is a little strange oO

Probably safer than the millions of £1 chinese USB chargers that get bought every year, those things are probably left plugged in 24/7 and many more times likely to catch alight, electrocute, etc.

the 2.1A is shared between the two that puts me off.. not that i know of any on the market currently that'll do fast charge.

The 3.1amp is faster and a good option, but I don't think we will see a fast charge version of these. There is no fast charge standard so you have to use the correct charger for your device for fast charger to work.

about the only thing I don't turn off, at least these are designed to be left on 24/7. The USB in wall socket are passed under current safety conditions, there is no specific safety standards for these. just like the cheap nasty USB chargers people like to buy, direct from China.

but hey if your happy to put the your life and the life's of your family to the test. then go ahead.

Have you heard of any houses going up in flames or blowing the ring mains using these? I'm sure if they were that dangerous they would be banned or tougher safety laws put in place.

Dont see the point in these. Buy a plug in one, it will be more powerful.

Surely the point is to free up the socket so you can plug something else in...

Anyone know of a double socket with USB that has mounting holes for a single back box??

One fridge freezer fire a week, just in London apparently, and Fridges and freezers do tend to contain large quantity of flammable plastics and insulation, which also give off toxic smoke.

On top of which, many have plastic backs which will help a fire caused by a fault spread to its interior :-


http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/news/LatestNewsReleases_Fridgefreezerdelayputtinglivesatrisk.asp#.WEMJRfhDRQI

Modern fridge freezers are the most dangerous household appliance when involved in a blaze, a London Fire Brigade (LFB) report has found.


With USB mains sockets, I'd be more concerned about the separation between the dc components and the live components and the quality of the 5v output. Plus the added hassle of having to pop the circuit breaker and replace the socket whenever one fails.

You got me, when was the last time you worried about your ring mains? As long as you didn't buy some old decrepit run down house with poor mains wiring.
