Another thing I'd like mention is that I bought a metal 2 usb plug from a competitor for £25 (1 unit) and it came with a shroud as the back of the unit was too deep to fit the wall socket box. This made the plugs slip around and not fix to the wall as I'd hope. Another thing after 4 months it stopped working. So i gave up on it and binned it.
Fitting the first one of these was easy - the second and the third not so much, though. Although these fit nicely into an existing pattress box without any problem (I was worried the depth of the fitting on the back might be a problem but it's anything but) the problem came with the thickness of the socket plate. As this item protrudes from the wall about 5mm more than the sockets I was replacing, the two screws supplied to fit it to the wall weren't long enough. I needed to get some which were longer than the 30mm screws provided. Not a major problem, as longer screws can be bought from DIY places - just a pain that I had to leave the job half-finished and go out to get them. These screws are relatively cheap, so if the supplier put in screws that were 40mm rather than 30mm (or provided both!) then that'd make the product so much better without putting their price up by more than a few pence.
If you are undecided then just do it you won't be disappointed.
It was a simple task to isolate the old socket at the fuse box (VERY IMPORTANT), remove the two screws, disconnect the wires, then reverse the process to fit the EnCharge socket - two minutes. Obviously if you are at all unconfident, get an electrician to do it!
With this gadget we now don't have to unplug the lamps to charge our devices, don't have to keep the chargers nearby, and of course devices charge more quickly though this because of the higher current.
Eventually new houses will be fitted with these as standard, but I couldn't be bothered to wait.
Very easy to fit, charged up S4 and Nexus 7 in normal time frame.
Overall a smashing bit of kit.
The 2A output (shared) is able to give a quick charge to a phone or hold its own with an iPad.
The plate is standard, so is a direct swap with the old; the only watch-out is the USB converter inside means that the input wires could be a bit tight and squeezed in if they were long. I tidied mine up fine with no cutting.
