LAP 13A 2-Gang SP Switched Socket & USB Charger Polished Chrome Flat Plate
Great idea. Not enough juice
Love the idea... very neat and tidy.
Sadly the the 2.1A is shared across the 2 sockets. Charges my iPhone, but sadly doesn't charge 2 devices at once.
Would love 2 x 2.1A USB sockets.
Don't think it would be hard to do.
Would pay extra for that feature.

Another quality LAP product
High quality construction combined with fine product design imply a cost far higher than that offered.

Excellent product. I used it with the spacer (which is white) as It was a solid wall and I couldn't be bothered changing out the 25mm box. Still looks good with the spacer. Even with the spacer though which took it to the depth of box recommended it was still really tight and fiddly with the wiring due to the extras they need to put in to enable the USB sockets. Especially if it is bottom fed like mine was. Minor gripe though as overall looks good and really useful.

Bought one of these on a whim as didn't have access to high powered USB charger for my iPad and the cost of the socket was about the same as a dedicated charger.
As previous reviewer states this is a slightly deeper socket than a normal 2 gang but it does come supplied with a washer plate and extended screws so that it can be retrofitted although this detracts from the overall metallic look!
I've been using for a few days now and was pleasantly surprised at how clean the supply from the USB transformer is as I have experienced issues with cheaper units making the touch screen unresponsive while charging a device.
The socket is of sturdy construction and does the job. I find the rocker switches a bit stiff and clunky and without the finesse of some of the more expensive sockets out there but for the price you get a lot of product for your money!
One criticism is that the USB ports are mounted the wrong way around so you have to connect the device with the USB symbol pointing towards the ground which can be counter intuitive.
