Rated 1 out of 5Â by Elrao Poor USB output
These say shared 2.1A output, which i took to mean that using one socket would give up to 2.1A but if using both then that would be split.
Using just one socket I am lucky to see 1A (from a device I know draws more from a proper Mains to USB adapter). This is measured using a usb charge monitor plugged in between the socket and my device (shows 4.94v, 0.84A)
Same cable/device/monitor plugged in to a cheap ikea adapter shows 5.01A and 1.6A.
Shall be returning the unused ones and considering whether to remove and return the 4 I've already had fitted.

Great for bedrooms - no need for adaptors anymore - could be cheaper tho

I bought a pair of these just over 6 months ago, and my partner has been using one of them every night for her HTC smart phone.
Firstly, it is a reasonable product, but a little rough round the edges. The charge is pretty woeful, although i have no real way of testing this.
Recently it is has been very weak, and the USB has now given up alltogether. It has started making a faint ticking sound, and is warmish to touch.
I have already removed the faulty one and replaced with a standard 2G item. I will be removing the other one fitted (occasionally used only) and return them both to Screwfix.
Fantastic concept however i would strongly advise anyone thinking of buying to reconsider.

This is a great item and would encourage every household to have at least one, so convenient and accessible for all
