Oh my god! I need these in my house immediately.

get them from screwfix, they come in better designs.

This one from Amazon has the same internals, is a bit cheaper and Primeable, but more importantly matches normal style white sockets...

Just wait for the usual suspects to come and tell you they will burn your house down!

True but they are £17.99 on screwfix in nice designs and £15.99 for the white.
As this is a deals site, this is a HOT deal.
Im getting these for bedroom as they will be behind the bed/furniture so i can't care less what they look like lol.

I love these, bought one the other week- want more and now in process of getting them for my Daughters room.

Also... if you where lucky enough to get the amazon gift card, the Amazon ones work out at £7.29

Wish i had got 2 gift cards now...

Bought one before from Amazon and even though it is great one of the usb points didn't work.
Pain to return so ended up, via Amazon, chat getting a few quid off instead.

Are they easy to fit or would I need to get an electrician in?

Not sure on exact measurements, but due to the bulk of the USB ports, these are deeper than 'standard' sockets, so unless you have deeper recesses (the metal bracket in the wall for want of a better description) these don't sit flush on the wall.

have ordered two for bedside tables....didn't realize they were on Amazon and Prime will be fitting these tomorrow now

does anyone know if they take power when not connected to anything?? hot price!

This is the future :-)
Heat added

If you can't be bothered to fit these, want to save a few quid, or you want an extra socket as well, B&M have an "Eveready" 2x 240v 2 x USB 5v adaptor socket for £7.99 at the moment (N.B. noticed in small print on packaging B&M have licenced "Eveready name which is a bit cheeky IMO!!!).

voted hot, didn't even know you could get these, brilliant.

Yes, but it's a tiny amount.

according to the write up on amazon, the transformers for the USB shut down when not in use...so they should use nothng

If you install one of these in your house not only will your house burn down but it will cause time to go backwards throwing you into another time /space continuum.

You will then live the rest of your life in a cage being taunted by semi-intellegent frogs (and their spawn).

You may also get acne.

I strongly advise if you don't know what your doing or haven't done it before or not confident don't touch it

Heat added never knew they done these

If you aren't able to change this (after turning off the sockets at the fuse box) then Id advise before you try doing this that you learn some basic home DIY....to be honest changing a light switch or plug socket is very basic DIY...

For someone who has done it before easy but for someone who doesn't know what they are doing possible electrocution!!!

Never seen these will have to see if my hubby will get one orderd

Looks interesting

Wonder if apple products will work.

I'd strongly advise anyone who is thinking about one of these to read this first, shocking reading. electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/med…pdf

Great idea

If you want to do something similar bit don't want to be bothered with changing wall sockets then pick up a 5 port Anker USB charger. . One mains plug 5 USB sockets 2 of which are 2 amp cost me £15.

Even better after 13 months one port went a bit iffy, emailed Anker next day new updated version arrived completely free and said keep the old one, brilliant customer service

These are not for me. Take a read here before deciding to buy these.
electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/ele…ts/
And i realise that people will say 'i've had them xx amount of months without issue', but being an electrician, i personally think there are issues with these.

are you takeing the micehel the only use there own just like sony in between volts

Yes I was given this advice when I was 14 and a virgin. I learnt quickly.

Would be better if it was 10v so that it charged an iPad

Ipads aren't charged on 10v think you mean 10w

great idea thanks for posting X)
