That's a decent price, have some heat from me
can't get much cheaper than that
Good price, but yet another case of no stock anywhere near me - and only available in store. Hot anyway.
If each usb socket is actually 2.4A then its not only a bargain but amazing as usually with all of these, its 2.4A shared and 1.2A isnt worth having. If one of the usb's is 2.4A when not using the other one its also quite good but as the info on the site is vague i have no way of knowing

It says 2.4a on the front of the socket, I thought they had to display total power that is constant live. So I'm 99% sure these are 2.4a shared.
good price , just paid £5.99 @ Screwfix
Here's some details I found on CPC using the same manufacturers code (PPSK2USB), might help some of you.

1.2A is fine for most items, Many phone chargers are 1A, and many people leave phones to charge overnight. 1A would be perfectly fine for that. Some things such as tablets need a higher ampage, and many things like e-readers don't. iPads charge on 1A even through they say not charging they really are, it just takes longer.

Many older devices may not be able to use anything more than 1A, so while some devices will charge faster if you give them more ampage, others it will make no difference. Worse case is you over supply a device with poor or no overload protection and damage the battery so shortening its life.

Bottom line is with batteries charging slower is always better so unless your device supports fast charging you should read the instructions or charger with your device to see what ampage you need.
Stock at Northampton Riverside but hidden in transparent storage box on top shelf in electrical items. Great find heat added
Collected a couple of these, online stock checker reckoned 43...was about 8 left
when I got there, and ALL had gone as I left..
Got to say that its not really a "fire sale" as has been said on here, more getting shut of old stock/items that new owners of homebase(Bunnings) won't be selling...
