Masterplug Surge Protected 1A USB and Mains Charger
31st March 2016
Twin USB Charger with a Couple of Convenient Features
This very convenient UK mains plug charger combines two USB charging outlets with a UK 13 amp mains socket. This means that when the unit is plugged into a single mains socket outlet you are still able to insert another 13 amp plug into the mains. The two USBs are capable of charging my iPhone and ipad from 0 to 100% simultaneously within a few hours. I usually plug in overnight and, as others have said, if the indicator lights annoy you place a piece of insulating tape over one or both to screen the glare. The additional mains socket outlet within the unit allows me to keep my bedside light plugged in. Previously I was using a world wide travel plug with three USB outlets but I noticed this made the iPhone or ipad become electrified to the touch. The tingling sensation generated by this unit was not painful and obviously not life threatening as I'm still here, but I wasn't happy with this situation and by changing to the Masterplug the problem has gone away. The masterplug is manufactured to UK standards and has surge protection built in to avoid damage to your delicate equipment. I recommend.

You will wonder how you managed without it
Bought a few of these and they have just been so useful. Gave one to each of the children who said it was the most useful thing I'd come up with (hard earned praise)!
It is small but can charge 3 things at once so ideal by the bed, going on holiday and as presents. With weight restrictions these days I just take this and one converter plug and the leads and I can charge in no time.
It is also neater than loads of things charging separately as it takes up less room on the bedside table. Doesn't seem to slow charging down either as some others have done. Thoroughly recommend

Two 1 Amp USB outputs will charge two mobile devices simultaneously
Designed to maximise space efficiency, the Masterplug USB adaptor allows you to charge two USB cable supported mobile devices from just one main power socket.
Using your existing charging cables, the Masterplug's dual 1 Amp output can be used to charge your smartphone, iPhone, iPad Mini, iPod, MP3 player, digital camera or e-reader.
Plug through design ensures that your mains socket is available
Not only does the Masterplug allow you to charge USB devices, but it also ensures that the mains socket is available while the USB adaptor is in use. This means that you don't need to sacrifice the use of a power socket in order to charge any of your devices, allowing you to use the free socket for your bedside lamp or for charging of a laptop.
Compact & portable design with easy to view power and surge LED indicators
Measuring only 75 x 61 x 36mm, the Masterplug is compact enough for travel use and can be used discreetly on power sockets without looking unsightly.
Also includes LED indicators for both power (blue) and surge protection (white), to show that the power is connected safely and ready to use.
Features built-in protection to keep your devices free from damage
The Masterplug has been specifically designed to filter out high voltage surges and spikes from the mains supply, thereby preventing potential damage caused to computers and other sensitive electronic equipment.
Includes an unlimited Masterplug Surge Warranty
Confident in their 'state of the art' technology, Masterplug Surge products come with an unlimited value 'Connected Equipment Warranty'.
