Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent shaver socket used to replace existing socket where shutters had failed. tooth brush plugs in easily.good idea for 240 volt and 110 volt sockets to be of different sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different sized outlets I often see equipment plugged into the wrong voltage outlet causing them to fail. With this shaver point the outlets are different sizes preventing this from happening which I have not seen on some cheaper models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very happy with the product. Was looking for something that would fit in a 35mm back box and this did the job.

Does it have a transformer

Asked by: joewatt
Hi joewatt, Yes, there is an isolating transformer with both 100% and 50% voltage outputs (for the 230 and 115V marked sockets respectively).

Switched?

Is the socket switched on the primary side when a shaver is plugged in, or is the transformer "always on"?
Asked by: MisterE
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The coli for this British General Dual Voltage Shaver Socket 115 / 230V White is permanently connected to power, but not consuming any measurable amount unless charging/powering a connected device.

Is this suitable for constant charging?

Interested to know if this is suitable for toothbrush charging, having read that some are not.
Asked by: HarriJ
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. British General shaver sockets are not designed or tested for use in charging electric toothbrushes. Due to interaction between the coils in the socket and the toothbrush charger circuit there can be a lot of heat build-up in the socket, which it is best to avoid.
