As the name and image implies, this product is designed to replace an existing 2 socket faceplate you may have in your home. By replacing your existing faceplate, you get 2 3 pin sockets like you had but now two USB sockets for connecting your gadgets too.

If you are anything like me, you will have a few devices that require power regularly, be it a smartphone, a smartwatch, a tablet, maybe a fitness product amongst others. That is just myself. My girlfriend has a similar array of tech. If you have children they too may have a couple of devices as well.

I personally have a charger in the kitchen and in the bedroom as for me these are the two most logical places. Whilst 70% of the time my phone is charged at night by my bed, there are times where an extra charge during the day is necessary and this is often completed in my kitchen.

I have a 4 gang extension running of a dual socket in my bedroom, because I have an alarm clock, bedside lamp, a shaver, electric toothbrush, phone charger all connected.

By now you get the picture of where I am going and the problem. There are cables everywhere.

The 2 way socket with USB ports does not reduce the number of devices that need charging but the way that they are charged and potentially doing away with an extension lead and making the whole solution a little safer.

Suitable only for use within the UK, the process of installation is very simple.
