It says in the product description 'Fast charge for enabled compatible devices.'. What devices is it referring to? Because it isn't 'fast charge' compatible with new smart phones including the iphone and Samung galaxy.

If the c-type socket is only outputing 5V then it isn't 'fast charging'. What exactly does 'fast charge' mean in this context? I suspect that this product is being falsely advertised as 'fast charging'.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General Nexus Metal 2-Gang SP 13A Switched Socket + 4.2A 2-Outlet USB Charger Brushed Stainless Steel has a maximum current output of 2.4A from the USB A socket and 3A from the USB C, meaning that it will not slow the charging of connected devices by limiting the current they have available (up to the maximum output). There is no proprietary speed charging technology built in, as these systems are specific to certain manufacturers whom haven't shared this with other manufacturers to include in their devices.

If the USB type 'c' port/socket supports fast charging why doesn't it output 9 Volt as well as 5 Volt? 9 Volt is what is needed for fast charging.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General Nexus Metal 2-Gang SP 13A Switched Socket + 4.2A 2-Outlet USB Charger Brushed Stainless Steel complies fully with the USB standard, which specifically limits the output voltage to 5V +/- 0.05. If there are companies manufacturing `fast charge' sockets which output more voltage, or devices which demand more in order to charge faster, then these are not fully compliant with the USB standard.
