No, not really. What you also have to check on those DIY cheapo versions is the amp rating of the USB sockets.. Most cheap ones are 2.1 amp or lower or "shared" so will only charge small devices. These are 3.1 amp. USB sockets

Good price for these with a steel fascia and 2 x USB rated at 3.1 Amp. These are £22.98 EACH normally at screwfix.

DON'T buy the cheap DIY alternatives because the USB rating is usually very low ( less than 2.1 Amp) and sometimes "shared", so useless if wanting to charge larger USB items. They also overheat or buzz if you try to charge a larger item turning them into a mini barbecue.

Same reason you wouldn't try to charge an iPad with your iPhone charger...

Its a great price for two. Its £22.98 for one in screwfix. Too many people mark these as cold and quote cheaper versions on the internet but they usually have very low USB supply rating. These are rated at 3.1.AMP so safe for most USB charging needs.

Yeah I know, that’s why I said add that it’s two to the title
I'd recommend these ones. I got three in my house 12 months ago and they have been great. My dad bought a couple of chepo ones at the same time and the usb sockets have failed already.

These are BG and pair of them for this price is really good.

I went to wilko today and same sockets but in single packs it’s £20+
Not great reviews on Amazon for these. Lots of burnt out sockets (both usb and mains)
Does anyone have experience of these? How safe are they really ?
