Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hums a bit... Good quality and I'm not aware of others suitable for toothbrush charging. If surface mounting the 44mm MK 2 gang pattress box fits (screwfix number 19307) but other deeper boxes did not (e.g. The Lisse) Hums slightly in use. Terminals are easy to access. Pricey but looks much better than the old tatty one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is MK still the best? No I paid the extra for this socket after reading several reviews mentioning unacceptable buzzing for other models. Mistake! This one buzzes far more than the 2 other makes I have already fitted in different properties. I will be exchanging it for a 'cheaper, better' socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade / replacement Needed to replace some 20 year old shaver sockets and saw these are officially approved for toothbrushes as well. Nice clean design, works well, charges toothbrushes much better than the old "shaver only" sockets. Hoping for 20 years reliability!

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

Easy to install?

I currently have a shaving only socket & want to replace it with this dual purpose toothbrush socket. Does an electrician need to do it or are the wires still all the same, just like changing any other wall socket? Thank you :)
Asked by: Sazzles
Yes it is like changing any other wall socket but we would always recommend you contact a professional electrician if you are unsure.

Is this shaver socket "switched"?

The socket I currently have buzzes 24/7 and is warm to the touch. The transformer is permanently on which consumes electricity and is noisy.
Asked by: Andy80

Asked by: AmpBed
Hi the dimensions are 146mm x 86mm - the plate is mounted vertically.

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

Asked by: Liberator
You should be able too, depends on whether anything internally interferes. Will also have to be 45mm deep. MK only manufacture a 35mm deep dry lining box
