Should this buzz?

I've installed one of these and when you plug something in even if its just a toothbrush charger without the toothbrush on it, the socket makes a humm. It stops as soon as its unplugged. Is this usual for this product?
Asked by: Redbullwings
Hi Redbullwings, Our Shaver Sockets are not designed to cope with electric Toothbrush chargers (hence there _not_ being a toothbrush symbol on the plate), so if one is plugged in there is a strong chance of unusual effects (including buzzing) due to the transformer coils in the charger interacting with the transformer coils in the Shaver Socket. It is possible that the effects from such interactions might include component level damage to the socket so we would strongly advise against connecting any inappropriate device(s) to it, only electric shavers.

Toothbrush safe to charge?

Description states for use with toothbrush and Shaver. Item has sign "shavers only". What is the truth?
Asked by: Tallgrass
Hi Tallgrass, The item markings, and the fact that this is a dual voltage Shaver socket, are correct. These sockets have not been designed to function with Toothbrush chargers and so using them in that way can lead to unexpected operation, heat buildup etc. so we would advise against this.
