Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware this product ! I had been waiting for a USB socket to match existing and the terminal layout of this one suited since they are the same as the non USB Socket....so no extra fiddling about. BUT as already pointed out you can't use both USB points at the same time....well certainly not for two iPhones or an iPhone and an iPad. Screwfix are aware of this and have offered to refund. BUT the problem is worse than that.....if you try and connect say two iPhones....the unit "alternates" between the two....clicking very quickly from one to the other.....AND IN MY CASE COOKED THREE PERFECTLY GOOD CABLES AND ONE iPhone CHARGING PORT.....before I realised what was happening. Total cost to me £85 ! So beware, socket is fine just don't plug into both USBs at once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crabtree USB double socket Nice strong sturdy piece in the Crabtree style, USB's slightly difficult to access with 13amp plugs in place either side but like the style and good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good build quality I have been waiting for Crabtree to bring out a usb socket to match all my other Crabtree sockets. I bought this item (which was dearer that other sockets) and can't fault the build quality. I fitted it and started using it only to find that you can't seem to Charge two devices at the same time, I would understand if it was tablets which need more current, but I'm talking about two mobile phones. Overall I'm disappointed with the performance of this product and would not recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crabtree usb socket Good usb socket. There are plenty of usb sockets on the market but if you need to match existing Crabtree then this is the one.Only given 3 stars for performance and reliability as this can’t be predicted.

Please confirm power is always available to the USB sockets for charging without switching on the sockets as I have had charging problems.
Asked by: Tinitus

Live and neutral terminals

Is there the facility to wire the live and neutral on ‘both sides’ of the socket? From the image it looks to me like you can but just wanted to check before I buy it.
Asked by: Sturchy
The live terminal is located on the left side of the socket next to an earth terminal, the neutral is located on the right side also next to an earth terminal. As always please ensure that any installation work using electrical products is carried out by a qualified and competent electrician.

The socket has 2 x USB sockets but the reviews sugest that you cannot charge 2 devices at the same time. Is this correct and if so what is the point of having 2 USB outlets ??

Asked by: FixerMe
Hello. You can use both ports as long as the total load introduced to the socket does not exceed 2.1 amps otherwise it is highly possible that it will cause the PCB to administer some adverse effects to prevent an unsafe condition of use. This is a safety feature which protects the accessory from dangerous/harmful effects attributed to inappropriate loads such as overheating. Thank you for your interest in our Crabtree brand.

Are the USB outlets always live?

Are the USB sockets always on and, if so, what's the current draw when they're not in use?
Asked by: SuffolkBorn
Hello. Yes the USB outlets are always “live” - they can never be isolated, the current that emanates from the ports when the accessory is not in use is small but it does “leak” from the outlet nonetheless. The outlets are never fully engaged until the USB connection is made. We cannot ascertain the current drawn as it is such a small reading. Thank you for your interest in our Crabtree brand.
