Rated 5 out of 5 by from Socket I purchased three of these sockets when I moved to my new home last year they were great and handy for charging I Pads and game consoles for the kids. I decided recently to buy some more and swap with normal sockets through the rest of the house. An excellent purchases and well recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement socket Great double socket with two USB connections, easy direct replacement took less than five minutes to fit for a reasonably confident DIY"er. All worked on fit. Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too big for standard box When fitted to a standard box there is no clearance so unless the box is level the unit is out of level. It works OK for phones but have not tested on anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy upgrade Not enough sockets by the bed for the chargers? Use this socket to add 2x USB charge ports and now you can charge your USB devices at the bedside, sofa in fact anywhere in the house.

How long is the guarantee as I have one where only 1 usb socket is working.

Asked by: Krissibuoy
Hi Krissibouy, All of our sockets with integrated USB power outlets have a 10 year warranty period (first 12 months with the retailer, as per UK Consumer Law). If you need to make a claim with us directly please contact:- technical.support@bgelectrical.co.uk

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.

Would it cut-off power to USB when not in use?

Hi, Doe it automatically cut off power supply when the connected device is fully charged or when USB socket not in use?
Asked by: JohnS1234
Hi JohnS1234, The USB transformer circuit drops to a low-power standby mode when no power is being demanded through the sockets, consuming only 75mW (a chargeable rate of less than 0.000075 kW/h).

Plug gets warm when USB plugged in

I’ve just charged my iPhone 11 in one of the USB ports. After charging I touched the plug just below the USB ports it felt warm. Not hot, just warm. I unplugged and the plug soon cooled down (only took 5-10 mins).Is this something to worry about?
Asked by: NickJem
Dear NickJem, At higher outputs it is possible for some heat to be generated by the transformer circuit, so depending on the mA requirements of the connected device(s) this could happen. iPhones have been moving up through the power requirements for charging, so are currently somewhere in the 2-3A region as far as we are aware from what information Apple makes available, which is most of the potential output so this will have a bearing on the heat being generated.

Can I use two of this connected to each other from a fused spur? Only looking at lower power devices. I believe you can connect unlimited switches to a fused spur. Just checking if product is compatible.

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi pritchardavid, Thanks for your question. It is possible to connect two of these sockets in series from a fused spur, bearing in mind you overrall rating for both sockets will still be 13A. Kind Regards, Luceco Technical Team
