LAP 13A 2-Gang SP Switched Socket & USB Charger Brushed Steel
Not a bad product and does what it says, but the finish around the back edges of this socked are not good at all and it doesn't fit into a normal size back box, but not a big deal in the grand scheme of things as it comes with a black spacer which brings it out about 10mm from the wall allowing it to fit. The other problem I have found when I plug my kindle and tablet into the USB socket it comes up on screen, ( you have connected to a low charging socket and may take longer to charge) so when left overnight to charge I find it still hasn't charged fully next morning. Another small thing is when there are no devices connected the socket it makes a very small humming noise . I have a white socket similar to this socket and have had no problems at all, so if you don't need your socket to be brushed steel then I would definitely recommend the white socket which is also slimmer and fits into a shallow box with ease.

Innovative and stylish
This is a great product. I can now charge my phone and tablet without using the plug socket, freeing up the sockets for other things.
It looks great too , also there are other products that match so it won't look out of place.
Great value for money too.

We had decided to add USB sockets, but needed to match them with the Brush steel switches & the ones elsewhere were white only or over 25GBP. These ones match perfectly & excellent value. Have added them to kitchen & study too. :)

Just what I needed
With all the usb things we use in our house this is just what we were looking for. Keeps our plug sockets free for other things while charging phones, cameras and other stuff.
Works fine and will be getting another one for next to the breakfast bar.
