Permanent live (usb ports) and 3.1a but not sure which spec they support.

They look like the ones I bought recently which only require a 25mm backbox, might want to check though.
I have a couple of these in the front room and they are just as good as MK
Ordered two. Thanks.
Plastic though. Very council house.

Metal sockets are earthed. Much safer in the long term than easy to crack and snap plastic fascias.
Are these fast charge compatible?
May be I'm cheap, but I prefer plastic ones

Yes I think so.

I don't know how if money is no object, anyone could prefer white plastic over stainless steel, chrome or brass.

It's just cheap tat to me that's one of the first things you swap out along with pine clading, polystyrine ceiling tiles, and brown bathroom suites if you move into a property that has any.

No mate. They do not support QC. I have seen one brand making QC 3.0 compatible sockets but price is horrendous , roughly £30.

I love my wooden ones, I went with oak.

Hi might be a magpie, seems to like shiny things
I wouldn't say they are. Metal sockets look so much better. If you never had them before it's worth trying one out and seeing how it looks on your wall. They are a fingerprint magnet though!
Metal plug sockets? Very 1979.

What a constructive comment. Thank you for taking the time to share this with us.
I don’t think white looks bad in the right setup. We’ve just decorated our entire bedroom white: popped white sockets on, even, shock horror, white light switch. Looks fine. But downstairs in my dark wall? Nope. SS all the way, but as above, finger print magnets!

All of my switches are metal.
If I don't put fabric conditioner when washing clothes, the clothes (so me) become static which means I get a shock every time I put a light on. Can you imagine. It's awful.

Yes indeed I have a few wooden oak ones too. I though they would be metal with a veneer, but nope they are a decent bit of wood...

Ok hopefully more helpfully, for those that can afford it, higher quality and better looking versions are available for not that much more money:

I prefer lap or MK sockets mostly

BG and even MK seem to have gone a bit downhill of late

Yes that was the point I was making. Metal ones look so much better.

nb - the brushed finish ones don't tend to show finger prints. And i'd rather finger prints than the dirt marks that tend to be the bane of white plastic fascias.
