I would like to see some of these with a small push on/off button above the USB's to power it. It's otherwise a transformer nibbling at power constantly. It's not much, it's not enough to bother me (I have a few) but it would be a nice extra feature to see on these.

Do they do USB-C versions of these yet? Investing in type A seems like a bad thing for the future.

Theres a push button internally which only powers the USB socket when a device is plugged in..

A review says it didn't fit into standard wall hole so may be worth checking dimensions before you buy. Saying it's £3 :/

I use them instead of quick charge 3 for a over night charge

We don't have any single sockets in our house, so I went for the dual pack of double sockets from Argos. Either of these are a great deal in their own right. Well spotted OP.

I agree. Do the switches not control the corresponding USB ports by chance? It's not the small parasitic current I'm worried about, it's the transformer just constantly trickling along til it inevitably breaks and it's not like you can just unplug and replace it like a normal plug charger, is it...

Wonder what depth the twin pack from Argos ones are, as I've recently paid £8 a go from Toolstation for the 25mm ones.

Be careful with these as i remember reading a while back that they aren't as stringently tested as normal plug sockets (not this brand - but the USB combo type plugs generally) and are more of a fire risk.

Ive got a few around the house as they are so useful, but always a little weary of them.

Is that just this version or all of them? I've definitely got ones that are constantly live (I could prove the point with a multi-meter but the blue light constantly on rather gives it away :D )

Why would you need usb c versions as the other end of the usb c cable is a standard usb plug

Except scart never provided power, so your joke doesn't even work.

the next generation is replacing the standard usb socket, so it will be USB C in both ends. makes sense given everything is getting slimmer.

That's the theory but in reality, I'm not so sure. There have been numerous issues with USB-C, mostly with companies not building things to spec and there's a lot of confusion over what should or shouldn't happen when things are plugged in and which way power or data should flow as it's left up to the devices to negotiate and this can lead to problems. This was quite a big deal and was why the new Surface Pro didn't have USB-C and when you think of it that way, it does make sense:

Type C goes is on other end of your cable, why will you need it on socket ?

It sounds like those querying me do not own a USB C phone or do not understand the differences between specifications. A to C is only there for backwards compatibility. You lose the much greater speeds and voltages when using A to C.

Doubt you'll see USB 'C' for a while, certainly not for the range of voltages. There'd be no room for the electronics to support it behind the socket.

personally, I don't think it is good idea to have USB port with socket. The reason being, USB and related technologies develop very fast but not the power socket is at that pace. For eg. now USB3c standards can contain power 10x more than 2.1A. I can bet in 2 years, new tech will come and these will be obsolete. Moreover the transformer constantly drains power from mains.

These are the versions that can be upgraded, so dont worry too much,.
