Double Socket + 3.1A 2G USB Charge WHITE £11.99 @ Screwfix (Future proof your USB)

Found 1st Nov 2016
I see a lot of these deals for nickel sockets with USB and often wondered whether they are worth replacing, given that future charging needs are going to be greater the more devices we use and the speed at which they will need to be charged. Also I have a spare room and often let through AirBnB or people from abroad, this is ideal as USB is world universal and will charge both Android and Apple.

For those who simply need to replace their current white sockets and add USB charging functionality, these will future proof them with a charging capacity of 3.1A (normally 2.1A)

USB outputs: shared 3.1A, 5V, Type A. Back box depth: 25mm. Fixing centres: 121mm. Terminals accept up to 3 x 2.5mm² cables. Fixings supplied.

Description

White moulded socket with 2 x USB charging ports. Features angled, in-line terminals and includes backed out captive screws for easy installation. Ideal for charging iPads, iPhones, tablets, mobiles, cameras, MP3s and many more devices.

Raised Slim Profile

Ideal Retrofit

ASTA Approved

Angled In-Line Terminals with Captive Screws

Twin Earth Fitted as Standard

Single Pole Switched

Outboard Rockers

​agree, most phones don't draw more than 1 amp, there are different standards of fast charging which are incompatible with one another, so not much benefit buying this especially if putting it in a room you let out.

2 for £18 then

Single pole switching only. Double pole is definitely preferable for safety.

Would have taken the wickes 2 for £18 if it wasnt £8 for delivery..
