Brilliant bit of kit
Fitted this in my bathroom over the weekend, took seconds to wire up and copes with toothbrushes as well as shavers. good price too.

Not cheapest but amongst best
After many years' experience of using cheaper electrical parts, and many years of frustrating disappointment, I have concluded that buying a quality product once gives better value. I do hope that MK products still have the quality which gave them their reputation when they were British. Time will tell.

Excellent smooth lines and no switch mean this product should remain far cleaner than the previous model MK socket this replaces.
Transformer module on back of socket is fractionally wider than old model, meaning back box has had to be altered (unused lugs hammered flush with side of box).
Overall, standard as expected from MK.

excellent shaver socket
MK Dual Voltage Shaver Socket 115/230V :
If you need to charge a toothbrush and electric razor as I do, make sure the charger socket is continuously rated, as this one is. The 20VA (20 W) transformer is fine for almost all toothbrushes and razors, and the continuous rateing is shown by both the razor and toothbrush symbols on the front. The socket only gets slightly warm during charging and there is no associated ac hum with it.. The LAP 2-gang 46 mm surface pattress box fits the socket OK. Incidentally some have asked why bother with the 115V outlet. It only costs extra pence as it is simple for the manufacturer to take off a 115v tap from the isolating transformer that is necessary for bathroom use.
