Normally 14.99 but seen these today for 9.99 for 2!!!!
Free up your sockets! Double power socket with USB charging, allows sockets to be used for appliances, rather than chargers. 2.1A USB charger ideal for mobile phones, tablets and MP3's.

Send it an invoice
Good price but they are only 2.1a shared charging, meaning in my house with 3 mobiles, 3 tablets these would generally have two items charging meaning only 1 amp charging. Too slow for me.
3.1 charge faster
Costco do a twin pack of 3.1 shared for £11.99, they're by British Electric.

With an mp4?.

Lol.
Decent, if you only use one usb socket at a time
Just bought 3 packs for the whole house. Thanks OP!
I read somewhere that even if not in use the USB drain power.....anyone know how much this actually costs on your electric bill...or is it negligible?

It's that small amount you couldn't calculate it.

I agree. Spend a bit more and get twin 3.1A chargers. This is a cheap model that shares a single 2.1A charger between the two sockets. I got mine from Aldi.

From the site.
"USB Ports (2.1A) sockets share the output of a single 2.1A 5V transformer circuit, so if you connect to only one of the USBs then this entire amount is available to the device but when two devices are connected it will be shared between them"

I doubt it makes much difference for most people - overnight charging means 1 amp is fine.

Take a good few steps back then run at it as fast as you possibly can. Shouting like a mad man is rumoured to help

Lap 2G 13A switch socket 2 USB 3.1 Two for £14.00 at screwfix
3.1 is better than 2.1

3.1 is better than 2.1


Its only for charging.
B and Q do the 4.2amp ones was just looking at them today
How difficult is it to mount / connect it?
Is it a DIY sort of thing, replacing a regular socket?
Sorry if I sound very ignorant.
Check on You tube
Silly question but if you leave the charging cable in the usb socket after charging, is there a risk of fire? at least with a plug you switch it off at the socket?
