I ordered 3 of these from Aldi online. I think it was £21 for them all. I have fitted them and have to say I am extremely pleased with them. Easy to fit and work like they should. Great price as well.
Do they fit a 25mm box without spacer?

I have just checked the instructions that came with them and it doesn’t mention back box size. I have one on a surface mounted 25mm pattress if that helps.
Are these USB sockets going to become the unused relics of our age, rather like the VHS players of a previous one? The 13 Amp plug and socket system (BS 1363 of course) was born in the darkest days of WWII and has seen off numerous techy upstarts since. It would be ironic if that is to be the fate of the USB, unloved and unused yet ever present alongside the 13 amp plugs of the kettle and toaster.
Much cheaper than Screwfix, which would have been my first choice. (£10.99 or 2 for £15!!)

The problem with them is charging technologies are constantly evolving so they become outdated pretty quickly. USB PD has become widely adopted in chargers for a number of years, and yet I don't think there are any sockets available with USB PD ports.

For a bedside socket, it is fine as you don't need fast charging, just slow charging overnight. But the main use case for these sockets is in areas where you are constantly plugging things in and out. So I personally have not bothered. If charging specifications ever settle down to one unified solution then perhaps they will make more sense.

And if you don't use them there are very wasteful as the active circuit in them uses a constant trickle of power.

Very low trickle, but I'm sure you waste more electricity leaving your tele, laundry, micro, fridge, freezer, laptop, monitor, PS4 etc on.... than the trickle charge knocking up your electricity bills
