No, it's £1.99 ...or more!

Even though their email definitely says "Price Includes Delivery" on this specific item!
(I thought the charge vanished if you went thru to purchase rather than looking at Basket & quote for P&P, but it doesn't!

Should be, yes. (In theory it shouldn't ever use much more than 20W, which is less than 0.1A current at 250V - it's high current devices you have to be particularly careful about when thinking about the risk of overloading an extension, devices like hair dryers, fridges, a heater, etc.)

I think there is energy wasted here as the transformer will be kept energized irrespectively whether there are equipment to be charged or not if it is kept plugged.

But good for travel companion as you are not paying electricity if you stay in a Hotel ...

Note that iPad is not supported - see one of the reviews on amazon and Energenie's response
#24
£8.98 all in better than changing you're sockets like I was going to do
#26
Does anyone know what the max amp output will be if you only have one USB plugged in?

DC USB Output Current: 3.15 Amp max. in total
#27
and there was me, being told by my family not to use double adapters anymore on the grounds of health and safety, ah well.

No but, given that it won't charge an iPad, I'd take the specs with a large pinch of salt anyway. iPad should only need 2 amps.
#29
Interesting, but note the reviews on amazon "unable to charge an iPad plus iPhone at the same time" and "Charging an iphone 4s and ipad 3 together won't work" and several others along those lines. Someone else explains "this 'charger' doesn't join the data pins so most devices will think it's just a normal USB port instead of a 1000mA charger - which means they won't draw more than 500mA from it (even though it says it can handle more)". At a guess, the same applies to the Energenie device.
#30
3.15amp will charge your phone quicker however most phone chargers charge at 1amp. May seem 3 times quicker but it will damage your phone battery quicker so don't be surprised when the phone dies much quicker than normal.
#31
Nice deal, but does anyone know of a two usb, two three prong plug in socked?

Could use one of these but can only ever find one socket.

It shouldn't if it's been properly made. It shouldn't draw more than the phone etc requires. If the voltage is too high that could damage your phone. It depends on the components used. Very cheap USB chargers use just three or four cheap low rated components. Someone should take this apart and thoughly test it. That's the only way to know.

PS this is not a 'double adapter' There is only one 13amp socket, so the normal unfused double adapter socket problem does not apply. The usb part should be separetely fused.

Where there is ANY details of the MasterPlug's USB capabilities the spec is just 2 x standard 500mA USB sockets.

After a lot of searching on MasterPlug's own website I eventually found a leaflet specifically on their USB stuff and it totally ignores the issue of what current USB sockets can deliver ie the 500mA "USB" spec, or the charging needs of 750/1000/2000mA of devices!

The Energenie website is similarly 'untechnical' but does say for this product: "This product has a 3.15amp output and therefore can charge an iPhone and iPad at once, unlike 1amp and 2amp versions. "
#34
will this charge ps4 controllers?
#35
Ordered, and they took payment, but got an email saying "This item will be backordered and delivered to you following stock arrival"
#36
just buy them at ASDA for £6... what am I missing? (bought in Trafford Park)

25% of the 12 amazon reviews give 1 star.

I'd want to know that this is a certified product from a reputable company - otherwise it's yet another fire hazard. No, I'm not paranoid about stuff but having seen the tests on some of the cheap electrical tat I'm very concerned!

Any extension should have a fused thirteen amp or less fuse in the plug which connects it to the wall socket, so you cannot overload it: if you plug devices that consume over thirteen amps, then the fuse in the plug will blow.

Early two or three way _adapters_ had no fuse, so if you plugged these into a wall socket, then the adapter could draw more than 13 amps through the single socket which could cause the connections to overheat.
