anyone else find that the USB part stops working after a while, I hav 2 that the USB no longer works.

just changed all the double sockets in the kids bedrooms for these. well made and free up sockets from all the chargers. been this price a while as I bought mine before Xmas at this price. still heat for bringing this to the masses

Had these very ones from Screwfix for about 8 months, still working fine.

I think you need a 35mm back box. 25mm is a little tight and they don't always fit if wires fall wrong. I have 2 of these and 1 stops the phone touch screen working if I use while plugged in. It because of static I read? Charges ok though. I'm not a fan of these as I worry about the quality.

£8.99 in Aldi aldi.co.uk/dou…500 3.1 amp USB and low profile back. Brushed ally £14.99.

Hope you kept all the old sockets, these don't last long, the USB circuits normally fry within a couple of years constant use

​And the Aldi one's are definitely not 3.1 amp... not from that link anyway.

I've had one of these for about 9 months and I can echo what another poster has mentioned; the USB on one side has deteriorated. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't

I should probably take it back because it's still under warranty.

Can the quality of your charge cable effect charging/charge times?

Heat OP.

​The ones I saw instore this morning definitely had 3.1amp on the actual socket as that was the first thing I looked for. The brushed ones were labelled 2.1amp though.

Offer still available and its until 05/03/2017

cheapest I've seen these - hot.

offer on for a while & looks like loads of stock (my 2 branches have 20+ each) on 2 for £10

I posted a deal on these @ 2 for £15 Argos a few months back - this is better. Got slated by others that apparently they aren't as good as £20 each branded products!!!!! deals or review site?

asl3312

​Fair enough



3.1a though, so the better option

what output is the USB sockets?

2 for £10 the best I've seen plus reputable brand and looking at reviews on site over 500+ hardly anyone has given negative review mostly 5*, bought 18 sockets changing all my doubles to these, THANKS OP

Used Quidco as well Bargain!

If there isn't much room in the box in the wall you can get a shelf which also acts as a spacer. Added this to both of theses sockets and the shelf is really handy for putting your phone or tablet on whilst it is charging. Think they were 99p.

This is complete bunkum, I suspect one of those urban myths that sound plausible but have no substance. I've fitted lots of these LAP items (as an electrician) and have not had to replace any yet.

I'm not sure I'd bother changing all of them, unless you have 20 cell phones!
I normally fit LAP items from Screwfix, and these are a good price. You will need a fairly deep box to fit these items.

Does an electrician need to fit these?

My experience of the USB ports on these are that they are crap. When they are working they output way less than a typical socket charger. Makes for a very slow charge.

I've picked mine up and fitted seems to charge pretty good 2 devices so success no more taking my charger downstairs

As long as it is a like for like change (no alteration to the circuit) then this is not notifiable work.

​orrr...you could just buy new ones if they go?

Are the 2.1amps shared.

Remember these use electricity when NOT in use (it's a transformer)

Yes. Get a charging current monitoring app for your phone.
