Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should Have Done It Sooner I have been thinking of swapping over some sockets to ones with USB ports for some time. It took me 5 minutes to swop out two. Very easy to fit, a little bit tighter to fit the existing wall box but all in all a very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent socket I’ve tried a couple of these during a renovation project and this is my favourite. Works well and well made easy to fit and looks great so I can’t fault it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as described. Satisfactory replacement double socket which fitted straight in allowing the addition of USB sockets. Bear in mind that Apple is going over to USB-C and so an adapter will be needed if you have the latest Apple product. The only thing from a personal perspective is that I like the terminals further apart than here. The Live Earth and Neutral are all in a close row. Not a deal breaker but it makes the centre area a little busy.

Does this have any tiny night lights embedded?

I found some previous USB switched sockets had bright blue LEDs which were not mentioned and which were so bright at night that they disturbed my sleep. Had to swap out the socket for a non usb one.
Asked by: CarolynJane
Hi CarolynJane, No, there are no lights in our USB integrated sockets, only in the Wi-Fi Range Extender with USB model (to indicate extender functional state).

Use for powering a Pet monitor camera?

Can the USB sockets be used to power a Pet Monitor WiFi camera or are the USB sockets only intended for charging the battery in a connected device.?
Asked by: Idoyourdiy
Hi Idoyourdiy, The USB circuit is capable of constant output 24/7 up to its maximum level of 3.1A, so there shouldn't be any issues with powering your camera from it.
