Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money At half the price of many other shaver sockets I did wonder if the quality would be up to scratch, I need not have worried its a great item installation was a breeze and even has small plastic screw caps to hide unsightly screws (+ 2 spare inside casing should these get damaged or lost when decorating in the future etc). The unit makes no sound and I would give it 5* for performance and value for money. 19 Mar 2016

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
British General shaver sockets are not designed or tested for use in charging electric toothbrushes.
Due to interaction between the coils in the socket and the toothbrush charger circuit there can be a lot of heat build-up in the socket, which it is best to avoid.
