The output is shared between both USB ports so in reality you can only use one port at a time. Caused us nothing but problems at home when the kids keep plugging a second device in,, pay a bit more and get higher rated outputs

Screwfix sell a selection of 3.1A all the way to 5A ones

Surely these sockets can handle 13amp appliances too tho?

Lol. It's related to the USB charging power thingy.

my iPhone 6 came with a 1A charger..... so sharing 2.1A shouldn't really be a problem

You can't even plug plug 2 iPhones in them,, if you will only ever use one output they are fine.. but try to Charge 2 iPhones and they won't even trickle charge one. I have already replaced similar ones I bought last year for higher rated outputs... you get what you pay for comes to mind

Charges both my wife's and my own iPhone at the same time without a problem.

I'm just waiting to have two sockets delivered by a family friend who picked them up from Aldi for me. Similar price but with 3.1a ports.

never mind 2 devices these MAY not be able to supply even one evice - one good way to tell is to plug in a raspberry pi2 if you see a colored box in the corner of the screen the Pi2 is not getting enough juice. the only ones that passed the test for me were the ones sold by 7dayshop (but screwfix from about a year ago were rubbish - they MAY have improved)

Aldi page says 2.1 amp. Is the packaging different? https://www.aldi.co.uk/double-wall-socket-with-white-usb/p/077326139145000 cheers!

Surely this would be fine for charging two 1A devices at once?

Thank you so much for verifying. For once, a timely impulse buy inspired by hotuk! (My husband had mentioned getting these for our kitchen refurb but I thought he was describing something that only charged USB devices, not all other appliances as well!) I'm a simple mind, lol.

Damn more money spent, just bought 3 from Aldi. Definitely 3.1 A shared between the 2 .

Thanks - that's good to hear - I've just received two of the 7dayshop ones which were on offer with a big discount a couple of weeks ago.

I can't view the page but there was one that was silver at 14.99 that was 2.1 amp? Could it be that one.

Anything I should know when I try fit?
