What does a double mains socket do?
Rated at 13 amp, this mains socket can be wired into any standard mains socket that is a double gang. A standard design, finished in white, means this mains socket fits in with any décor – but it must be used with a minimum of 25mm mounting box.

What makes this socket different?
This mains socket includes four USB sockets for a total of 4.2A, each pair of USB sockets shares 2.1A between the two. This allows you to plug in devices such as smartphone and tablets to charge without using the mains socket.

If you are uncertain of how to wire the socket up, please consult a qualified electrician.

Could you confirm that this would charge two iPads? My understanding is that iPads are less forgiving when it comes to chargers than other devices.

Asked by: Matthew Hunter
Yes, this should charge 2 iPads fine as long as they are on separate sockets (one iPad on the left socket, one on the right socket) as each side gets 2.4A of power which is what an iPad needs to charge.

If I plug 2 devices into one pair of USB outlets, drawing the full 2.1A available, what is safe to run from the 13A socket? - for example a kettle would most likely draw the full 13A - is that available, or would the socket be overloaded?

Asked by: Stephen
If both sockets are individually wired then this will be fine.
