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

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 .

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.

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

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
Earlier versions of this product were only suitable for shavers. The current version with the additional icon has been extended to use for charging toothbrushes.
