LAP 13A 2-Gang SP Switched Socket & USB Charger Polished Chrome
Great idea. Not enough juice
Love the idea... very neat and tidy.
Sadly the 2.1A is shared across the 2 sockets. Charges my Phone, but sadly doesn't charge 2 devices at once.
Would love 2 x 2.1A USB sockets.
Don't think it would be hard to do.
Would pay extra for that feature.

This is an excellent unit and frees up the sockets when charging phones etc, good idea and nicely implemented. The depth of the unit seems a bit more than a usual socket but the unit is supplied with a spacer which works well and looks good. I used the spacer but to be honest not because of the depth but because I liked the way it looked.Easy to fit and correctly sized. Good unit.

Not iPad / iPhone compatible
Poor charging speed for my Samsung phone and not compatible for iPhone / iPad charging.

Great USB capable wall socket.
I bought this to replace a perfectly good double socket - adding the ability to charge more 'devices' at the normal 'charging station' in the kitchen!
It looks good and works a treat, meaning I can charge 2 items without the bulky plugs, and if I need, I can more devices using standard plugs
One thing to be aware, the internals are a little deeper than a standard double socket - so mine only just fitted into the recess, with the mains cables tucked behind.
On the plus side, the wiring terminals appeared decently heavy duty - a bugbear of mine when fittings with decent features are let down elsewhere.
Only giving 3 stars for reliability, as I can't really comment on that so soon.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product with usage so far.
