Just been looking at these. £4 each here incl vat. However £5.50 delivery. May work out better if ordering more than 4 as I need.
Or better for non prime.
Have these fitted already and great quality and look.

Good sockets have these in my house only negative is for a metal socket they are rather flexible and bend if you do not screw them to wall evenly on both sides
How much would a sparky charge to change these?

Trust me, you don’t need a sparky. Go on YouTube. It’s 3 wires which are all colour coded. Just make sure mains are off, no exposed wires are touching each other, buy yourself a voltage tester.

Only 3 if the end of a spur, but yes it should be quite easy for most and acceptable for people to do it. Don't assume the holes for L, N and E are in the same place on the old ones though and you are best to get a plug in mains socket tester to confirm the basics are OK. Whilst you have it check the other sockets around the house too just in case wires have been transposed or fallen out.
As an update from my previous post.
Aswell as hello sockets also check out electricalcounter website as they are cheaper aagain for matching items. Light switches. Usb sockets Fused spurs. etc.
The double socket with 2 x usbs is around £10.19 on their website.

Dumb question, then: what does Earthing mean in this context?

Totally agree with the comment about them bending if not evenly screwed. Even then it's easy to over tighten them and they bend. Did a whole house, 40 in total, 1 had a broken rocker switch, 2 had screws that wouldnt tighten at the live terminal so in essence they were useless too. 3/40 defective is not bad but not great by any means. They do have a 25 year guarantee but I havent looked into it but suspect postage to send back may not be worth the hassle or expense.
