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.

What is the vertical distance between the two fitting screws

I want to change a white face plate to a silver face plate so I need to know if the screws are in the same place.

Can this shaver point be used for rechargeable toothbrush.?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi PetePeterson123, There can be side effects of heat build-up due to interaction between the transformer coils in the toothbrush charger and the shaver socket, so we advise strongly against using the socket in this way.

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.
