LAP 13A 2-Gang SP Switched Socket & USB Charger Black Nickel
USB & Socket
I love this idea.
Including a spacer was also a good move as I think most consumers will need it.
I would describe the back of the unit as a tolerance fit into the backplate. It's necessary to shave away any obstructions and leave a nice. clean opening.
With Ipads, phones, MP3 players, etc, all clogging up outlets, this USB Socket is a god-send.
I'm not sure if charging times are affected by using both USB ports at once but, in this household, that's not a problem.
I think I'll be buying a few more for strategic placement around the house.
I would recommend at least one of these per teen/bedroom in your home.
It was easy to fit and looks good, even with the spacer but do clean up the opening..

After two months the USB charging output failed. Constantly charging on and off every second. Shame good idea but not there yet.

LAP 13A 2-Gang SP Switched Soc
Bought two of these few weeks ago. Upon fitting one did not have the USB function working (which was main reason for purchase). Returned to local branch and received new one.
Installed and works a treat and looks good to.
Have only give 4 stars for reliability as only been connected for 3 days
Would recommend this item and screwfix.

I have installed these in my kitchen and one with the usb charger by my breakfast bar where my phone and ipad seem to live and its great. No more chargers hanging out the wall taking up space. I would point out that not only is the unit quite deep it is a bit too high and only just squeezes into the standard galvanised back box, however it is supplied with a handy spacer that looks ok and solves the problem.
I will be installing more.
