LAP 13A 2-Gang Switched Socket & USB Charger Port Brushed Steel Flat Plate 4.4 5 5 5
Good but not great The concept is great, it un-clogs your sockets from all those USB chargers. The finish is good, the socket looks nice and is supposed to be flush BUT will only fit flush in a very deep back box (deeper than 35mm) because the the charging unit is very bulky. A spacer is supplied to give the charger enough room, this stands the face plate out of the back box and away from the wall, leaving it not flush, defeating the object of fitting a flush design. We noticed our smartphones were not completely charging overnight so I investigated the charging performance. I'm a techie and know devious ways to fool, cheat and boost usb chargers. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the socket to perform any better than plugging into a laptop USB socket (normally about 0.5 amps and very, very slow to charge a smartphone). This unit takes more than 12 hours to fully charge my HTC One or my wife's Nexus (charged one at a time). Conversely it takes only 2 hours to fully charge either using any of our 1amp generic plug-in USB chargers. I conclude that the socket is not delivering anything close to the 2.1amps described. Disappointed, I am returning the unit for replacement. If the replacement performs better I will update this review. 26 Nov 2014
Excellent 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. 24 Nov 2014
Fantastic-Frees up the Sockets Brilliant - Perfect for charging my iPhone and iPad without having to worry about unplugging the kettle/toaster. 22 Nov 2014
Nicely finished & easy to fit This plug is a great idea and was easy to install and effectively doubles the capacity of the plug. Time will tell re reliability but all is good so far. 7 Nov 2014
