Good deal... shame no click and collect
The description on the socket itself (see picture on the website) says total for two usb is 2.1A max, so please double check before you buy

I'm using one of these to power both Fire TV and Chromecast using the same socket as the TV. Works great and frees up two sockets for other uses. Bargain for £2.50 although this isn't a new deal. I picked mine up at this price on Boxing day at Homebase in York.
does say usb output total 2.1, 1.05 each if used at the same time.
Does also mean I get the same 2.1max output if I use 1 socket only ?

Yes you should get a max of 2.4 if only using 1 socket, and assuming the device itself can accept a higher charge rate.

Shame that my local Homebase is now a Bunnings.
£6.99 at my local.

I tested one today, I completely depleted my smartphone battery(3000mah) and it took 3h 20m same as my original 1ah charger. I think it is very misleading what they wrote about the quick charge but you say that the device needs to accept the quick charge too. Would you say 100% it is my phone that does not accept more than 1ah charge? Someone else told me that if it was 2ah it would be accepted by any phone and charge at 2ah at all times, I got an OUKITEL C8.
Is there any other way of testing to see if in reality it is a real fast charger?
Anyway, it is a very convenient socket especially at this price.
Thanks

Can confirm that this is *NOT* fast charge compatible... Tested it with my Galaxy S7, using the original cable, and the phone just sees this as a standard charger, not fast... 😞

does it tell the exact amount? even a 2ah could be considered standard on your phone because if I am not wrong your phone got a fast charger rated at 3ah.
Please confirm
Just bought last two from my local Homebase. Still priced up as £6.97, but rang through as £2.50
Thanks op.
