How to fit & replace electric sockets

How to fit & replace electric sockets

Sockets can be surface or flush-mounted. It's easier to surface-mount electrical fittings, but the flush-mounted versions look better and are less prone to accidental damage.

Before adding a socket to your electric circuit, you must ensure that it will be compliant with IEE electrical regulations, and establish whether the circuit will require RCD protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two minor quibbles but excellent product This gives you four USB ports. Each pair will deliver up to 2.1 amps. That's enough to charge two devices at a decent rate or four at roughly half speed. Quibble 1: You don't get "Rapid fast charge" but that is not advertised. A pair of Samsung Galaxy S6s recharge at a decent rate so I'm not going to mark down for that. I haven't timed it but about an hour or so. Quibble 2: The main sockets are unswitched. I suspect that is so that the thing can be kept slim enough to fit into a 25mm backbox. I'd prefer switched but I've checked and it seems that "local isolation" (which the standards require) is achieved by removing the plug. The unit looks good and feels well built. It is a doddle to fit with generously large holes for the wires and a decently long thread on the grub screws and a mechanism that stops you removing them by accident. There are two, joined, earth points. They even colour code the live/neutral/earths as well as text, so it would be pretty hard to get it wrong. The wiring block is at the top, roughly between the USB ports.
