LAP 13A 2-Gang SP Switched Socket & USB Charger Brushed Steel
MODERN AND VERY SMART
I was attracted to the combined power socket and USB charger because I am fed up with bulky USB chargers dotted around the house. Initially, I wanted to replace 2 sockets in the kitchen and these looked good and in theory looked easy to fit. However, I have thick tiles on the kitchen walls and the back of these sockets is quite bulky due to the USB charger ports. Despite having 35mm wall boxes I had to use the spacer frame to prevent the socket being forced into the wall box. The end result though is very neat and the sockets and chargers work very well. Well pleased.

Not the best Socket ever
I purchased four of these sockets unfortunately one of the USB ports only worked intermittently. Bought a replacement only to find that after connection neither socket worked though both USB ports worked. Going for third time lucky which is a pain as resetting all the various clocks on cookers, microwave, boiler etc. takes time after each change.
Also you do need the deeper back box as the use of the spacer makes the socket stand out as an eye sore.
