Extremely easy, if its on a ring its usually 6 wires, if not might just be a spur and its 3 .
If your house is reasonably newish the wires should be solid copper wires so whack the main power off in the consumer unit just to be sure. Plug something into the socket you want to swap to make extra sure its dead, and then swap it.
Some usb style sockets are a little deeper on the back so you might need a spacer. Red or brown are LIVE and black or blue are neutral, green or green/yellow earth.
Make sure screws are tight, and done.
Finding them is the difficult part of this deal

Hardly, they're unswitched and lower power. 4.2a is the combined amperage of the unit, with 4 devices plugged in that's a maximum of 1.05a/socket. At least the OP's are 3.1a over two sockets so 1.55/socket and of course they are both switched and cheaper.
You're quite right... don't know what I was thinking! <Brain Fade>
Just got the last 4 in Newtownabbey branch , but other similar items available reduced

Think that's true if you are using all 4 ports at the same time though. If you using 2 ports then it's 2.1a per device, no? I guess you more flexibility to charge though if at a slower rate, although I can ever see myself needing to charge 4 devices at the same time.

Still lower power than the Op even if you just use one. The other two are paired @ 2.1a per pair.
