Product Description

Colour Name: White

Product Description

Upgrade any UK main socket with 2 UK mains plugs and 2 USB charging ports

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

Fits any standard double backbox

Simple retro fit socket

The USB charging sockets are limited at 2 Amp, if the current exceeds this it will automatically trip off to protect your devices

Surge & spike protected - protects your valuable equipment from damaging power surges & spikes

If no device is connected, the transformer shuts down and power is not supplied to the USB ports

Once a device is plugged in this activates the amplifier and power is supplied to the required USB ports

Conforms to European Stand-by Mode

Box Contains

Nillkin Sony Xperia C3(S55T)Super Frosted Shield Case

Colour Name: White
I imagine many people are in the same situation we were; both sides of the bed had a double socket, but with a clock, lamp, home phone and electric blanket we were constantly unplugging things to be able to charge our phones every evening, let alone our Kindle or tablet. So rather than unsightly multi way adaptors I thought I’d give these a try and do a straight swap of the 2 standard bedside double sockets for these.

What’s included:
1 x Charging Plate
2 x Mounting Screws
Installation Instructions

Pros
- Installation was very simple, a 5 minute job to remove the old face plate then connect up this replacement
- Solid feel/build quality
- 2.1A USB sockets allow for fast charging of all your USB devices including tablets
- Can independently power/charge up to 4 items from the socket
- USB sockets don’t need to be “switched on” (I can see how some people may see this as a con though)

Cons
- Whilst the build quality is very solid it’s certainly not up there with the standard MK sockets we have throughout the house; the switches feel a little clunky and all the corners could do to be more rounded
- For me it would look much cleaner without the printed graphic on the front of the socket

These sockets are very close to perfect, some minor design tweaks could improve things, but this isn’t enough to stop me from giving this 5 stars…highly recommended!

I bought this a month ago and they worked perfectly, good quality feel to them too. On the downside yesterday they just failed. The 3 pin sockets still work but both USB sockets have failed to charge. Really unfortunate as they looked great and were a real help. No issue with the seller, they were delivered very quickly and nicely packaged. Interested to hear how others get on after some use.

I'll hold off buying another USB socket for a while until I see more reviews after use...shame.

This is an excellent product. The only thing to be aware of is that the additional USB circuitry makes the back of the socket bulkier. this was a problem for me as it fouled the cables coming in the metal box in the wall so I had to buy a deeper wall box to be able to fit this. This obviously made it a more time consuming job than just swapping the socket over.

Was bought one as Christmas present. Loved the idea but USB ports didn't work. Removed the plate to find lots of soot and a burning smell at the back of the USB block. Obviously something blew. Not convinced of the quality/safety of these.

First one arrived broken, replacement sent, 2 weeks later 1 USB socket is not working, it just gets hot. I have my doubts about the safety of these.

As others have already said - wired in correctly - power restored, and the usb ports cause a trip and then don't work. Major fail. Power sockets still work fine but USB useless. Shame as a brilliant idea. Very disappointed.

Got three of these for around the living room and installed them while re-wallpapering and painting the room.

When first purchased, I'm sure the description here stated 35mm minimum, but they happily fit into a 25mm box - the description now states the same, which is good.

At first, having read a few reviews that they didn't work on receipt, I wired them up-to a test cable through a trip switch and used a multi-meter to verify the 13amp plugs and the usb worked. All three sockets purchased passed with no problems.

Had no problems with these since installing - two have usb cables permanently attached and working fine. Since so many things nowadays use 5v, I've got an hdmi switch, an hdmi cat5 extender, a raspberry pi and an harmony remote hub all constantly connected where before they had a myriad of clunky and wasteful 3pin plugs.

Also, note that if using many low powered devices, you can use a non-powered usb hub to gain a couple of additional usb plugs as well!
