Why bother fumbling around for USB adapters and instead, save time and space with having them built into the wall socket.

This version is 2A output so will charge high capacity devices quicker

Amazon sell this for £20.57 delivered

Information from the website:

- Fits any standard double backbox (minimum depth of 35mm)
- The USB charging sockets are limited at 2 Amp, if the current exceeds this it will automatically trip off to protect your devices
- 2 Amp intelligent split - 2 Amp is split between the 2 USB ports however each port only - pulls the required power, allowing an optimum charging rate rather than a reduced slower rate
- Features 2 switchable UK 3 pin power sockets
- As seen on the Electrical Review Website

Working temperature: -20 - 80oC
Maximum USB output: 2A, 5V DC combined
UK 3 pin socket output: 13A, 250V AC

Thanks for the comment - just to point out that the Amazon version is 1A output whereas the original post is 2A which might be more useful for those with high capacity devices or want a quicker charge

absolutely buddy, don't forget the 2A is split between both ports. Still around double the recharge speed of your standard USB 2.0 port per socket, looks a well made unit too buddy.

It's showing on my end. Is it still missing for you and are you on a PC or mobile?

What does still baffle me is how something like this post can get "cold" quite quickly. Amazon sell this for more and a quick scour of the internet doesn't reveal cheaper alternatives, so people vote cold because......?

It won't show for "text only" users if it's not in the title - that's why there's a reminder when submitting a new deal, to enter the price & merchant in the title

These are great, I purchased a 2A polished chrome version from ScrewFix for £17.99

Yep, it is in the title. Possibly edited between posts. As long as it's showing now, all is good

Indeed - someone has now corrected it

Don't forget to include the cost of the electrician as you are wiring this to the mains you have to be qualified to do it, unlike a plug in USB.

Not exactly rocket science to shut off your electricity, take out two screws, wire up a few wires and screw it back on!

With these things is the USB part always drawing power like if u had a USB brick built in. So say u had two 13 amp plugs in but no USB would the USB circuitry still be active & consuming power?

Are you kidding?

If replacing like for like e.g. a socket front or light switch, without alteration to the circuit, anyone can do it. be sure to isolate the supply before starting...

I would expect so but it will be fractions of an amp.

When you charge using a USB plug the power is shut off when the device is fully charged, is this controlled by the plug or the device?

If its the plug do these shut off too, is there a risk of over charging?

You can do more than that in the UK, as long as there's no provision for an extra circuit, and it's not in a 'special location' e.g wet room, bathroom, kitchen then you can extend or alter any existing circuit's without being Part P registered or informing Local Building Control.

Because you can buy something that "looks a bit like it" in Wilkinson's for under a fiver.

I often see this with higher end kit, people don't know what they're voting on, but that doesn't stop them from voting.

quite tempted with these....always been good idea but waited for a decent UK stockists...and also had no issues with Kenable

I guess just stick a screw driver in and find out.

I agree pay a little more and get something decent that you can take. a lot of comments on Amazon about issues fixing these in so more of an argument to source locally.

You should change the price to £14.86 because you can collect for free from Kenable. Granted not everyone could do this but as it's only 10 minutes from me I wouldn't nedd to pay for postage. I have used Kenable for all my AV cabling and have found them a really nice company to deal with so thanks to OP for finding this as I didn't know they sold them.

Picked one up from CEF (City Electrical Factors) on Friday, £12.95 plus vat. according to flyer these come with a 25 year warranty. A choice of square or rounded front plate as well. Fitted yesterday in 5 minutes, just isolate power to the socket and three wires connected. They are 2A - 5V, obviously across the 2 ports
