These are new out in this range. Great price but you might get more heat with pic OP as everyone will just think they are bog standard ones

Just to confirm, is each USB socket rated as 3.1a even when both in use?

I believe that each USB socket can independently deliver up to 3.1A, but the total amps will not exceed 3.1A. Most apple products will not take more than 2.1A.
