Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart looking upgrade Easy click and collect purchase, straightforward with decent easy access terminals and a smart looking unit when fitted, surprisingly it's also the only unit I could find that's actually rated for toothbrushes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toothbrush socket. My previous shaver socket was drawing power and getting warm and was only used for my toothbrush. This was the only socket I could find which said it coped with a toothbrush but you had to look at the third photo image on the site to realise this as the main photo does not show this. I think MK could be missing out by not emphasising this .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from finally something that works It is a bit hard to see because two out of the three product pictures (as of May 2016) are outdated and show a previous version of this product, but this shaver socket also supports permanently attached items such as toothbrush chargers. Other shaver sockets don't, as I had to find out the hard (or shall I say the hot) way. But who on earth would still need a shaver socket for only temporary use, other than maybe in public bathrooms? So, big kudos to MK for producing one of the few items on the market that actually makes sense. The main downside that I can see is that the price is way too high given how little a difference in complexity this device offers over plain shaver sockets that you can get at a third to half the price. Oh, and please ignore the reliability rating, because that is notoriously difficult to judge after just one day of operating the socket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect As a unqualified but competent person I found this quick and easy to install. Looks good on the wall and is typical of MK quality.

Can you use a dry lining back box with this item?

Asked by: Liberator

With reference to Ghibli's answer, two of the pictures in the Screwfix catalogue show a "shavers only" marking, but one picture shows two motifs that are very like a shaver and a toothbrush. ie Clearly showing two different products under one name.

Should I go to Screwfix to make sure I get the right one, suitable for my toothbrush???
Asked by: C4Chicken

What box should I use on the back (sunken into the wall)

Asked by: Dobbs
Hello Dobbs, The back box should be either of the following: Flush - 878 Surface - K2172 Hope this helps.

Rated for continuous toothbrush use?

The MK catalogue describes this item as rated 20VA and as a "shaver/toothbrush supply unit" so I would assume it's rated for continuous use at 20VA as that is how toothbrush chargers are used. However, some of the reviews suggest the units get so hot under continuous use that they crack. Please clarify in the description whether or not it is suitable for continuous toothbrush charging. The power required by our Braun toothbrush chargers is only 1.2W. I guess other makes are similar.
Asked by: NanaMan
The answer given to this question in January 2016 is misleading. I have spoken to MK's technical department, and they assure me that sockets made in the past couple of years have been OK for both shavers and toothbrushes. The way to tell for sure is that the latest "OK" sockets have pictures of both shavers and toothbrushes on the front. There may well be some old stock still floating around which are not suitable for toothbrushes (these say "shavers only" on the front), and if ordering by post you would need to check that you have indeed got the latest spec socket. Unfortunately, the picture on the Screwfix web site is of an old-style non-toothbrush socket. Hopefully this will change...

How long is this guaranteed for and is it actually suitable for electric toothbrushes?

One image shows a picture with electric toothbrush. Other images shows shaver picture only.
Asked by: Abdus
