Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shaver Socket Easy to install, good price, looks really smart in the bathroom

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking shaver socket The socket was easy to install into an existing wall box except that I found that I needed to buy longer screws than the ones supplied, in order to reach the threads in my wall box. 50mm long screws worked well instead of the 30mm supplied. The socket looks great and works fine.

The faceplate is warm, presumably from the transformer. Is this normal?

Asked by: Dickie54
Hi Dickie54, Yes, any transformer with coil windings will generate a little heat when powered as it is effectively the same as an electric heater element, so this is normal and to be expected.

Does the transformer automatically switch off when not in use?

Some shaver sockets have the transformer fed continuously, even though there is nothing plugged in. Others switch off the controller when there is nothing plugged in. What does this one do please?
Asked by: Scotty37
Hi Scotty37, The transformer coils remain energised at all times, but there is negligible power consumption due to this when measurements are taken in the lab.

Will this replace a shaver socket marked only 10va

Asked by: Billyon
Hi Billyon, The VA rating (wattage) of a socket is its maximum peak output, but when operating it will only supply what is demanded by the connected device (up to it's maximum) so yes our 20VA rated socket will be a suitable replacement, just able to cope with more power-hungry shavers than the previous unit was.

What are the length and width dimensions and will it fit onto a standard back box

Asked by: Lulu1963
Hi Lulu1963, The plate dimensions for this shaver socket are:- 86mm (wide) x 146.5mm (tall) and it requires a minimum of a 47mm deep standard 2-gang box (mounted vertically instead of the more normal horizontal orientation).

Are both sockets supposed to work

Currently only the low voltage socket is working.Can you please confirm whether both are supposed to work. If so i assume the product is faulty or not installed correctly
Asked by: SumoMay
Hi SumoMay. Both sockets on this product are supposed to work.
