Good replacement socket
4 Jan 2016
By
, Daventry
" Old socket was 15 years old and decided to give up the ghost.
Checked out the reviews on this an it looked a decent one.
Nice unit and very easy to fit as a replacement, only gave it a four on reliability as its only been installed for a few days. Noise is the same as previous "

Cheap, but effective

" The unit has only been in since Sunday, but I have already charged my shaver and toothbrush. No excess noise coming from the unit, it is clean and tidy and holds the plug in securely.
I will keep the review updated as per the noise as it was something I read about on other units so fingers crossed it stays as quiet as it is now. "

" I had doubts about purchasing this as the price was so low compared to others on the market.
I went by reviews and was not disappointed.
Easy to install and works well. Of course how long for remains to be seen. Very happy. "

" It appears everyone are selling these duel voltage shavers........Why I ask. Who in my house is going to use a 110v, or is this yet another euro thing........Apart from the moan, the shaver socket itself was fine. "

" Cheapest shaver socket Screwfix sell yet looks good, even comes with neat covers for the fixing screws, is easy to wire and does the job.
Whether you have LAP switches/sockets, or do not want/need to match existing furniture, why buy anything else.
Note: Performance and Reliability scores are based on short term use and all scores are with regard to the product price. "

Good basic product
7 Jan 2013
By
, Wales
" I was originally going to fit one of the more expensive branded products, but it was out of stock so I went for the LAP one instead, and am glad I did. This socket does have an internal switch to disconnect the transformer when nothing is plugged in (some other reviews have suggested that was not the case). Also, some other reviews have raised doubts about the suitability of these for charging electric toothbrushes, this one has been fine and does not get unduly warm. It does need a deep back box (as they all do), and care is needed as the connections are fairly close to the edge of the unit (more of a concern if using a metal box of course), but nothing that cannot be overcome with a careful installation.

Works perfectly and very reliable. "

" Bought this as a replacement for the ensuite as the original one had failed. Using to charge toothbrush. Perfect fit, holds charger plug solidly.
Unit is a bit noisy but can't be heard in bedroom. At price can't complain.
Also the staff at the Alnwick branch were excellent. "

Cheap but does the job
9 Mar 2015
By

" Someone asked why everyone sells dual voltage sockets. The answer is simply it means the same socket can be sold globally. The US uses 110v, europe uses 240v, but the sockets are all physically the same, dual voltage makes them cheaper to produce. Most shavers and toothbrushes will charge from either voltage anyway. "

" probably best price around but like all shaver sockets they are bulky and heavy as recommended in previous review use the lap surface mounting box for a neat finish but you have to use the46mmm deep ones which means its a large item on display "

" In spite of a few adverse comments by earlier reviewers, I was tempted by the low price. I needn't have worried as there were no probs. Installation in a 47mm metal box, plus tiling that adds a bit more depth, was a doddle. I can confirm that power is consumed only when a plug is inserted. Too early to comment much on reliability. Does what it says on the tin ! "

Slightly big for drylining box
3 Feb 2012
By
, Surbiton
" This shaver socket is excellent value compared to others I have seen, and is good looking as well. One downside is that it is a close fit in drylining boxes. It will fit in a 47mm box, but the transformer brackets need to be filed down a tiny bit on each side, or else it will bulge at the middle when screwed in. I thought it was due to the transformer being too deep or the wires getting in the way, but it was actually the brackets on the inside of the faceplate that were a little too wide. "

Choosing knock out box
19 Jul 2011
By
, Exeter
" Be aware that this product is a very tight fit in a standard galvanised steel 47mm knock out box.
The mains connection is at right angles to the box and very close to the metal box.
Ideally I would choose a product with a smaller transformer with a bit more space to route the wire around inside the box.
It is fit for purpose but not one I would use again. "

" Transformer buzzes which is annoying. Have to unplug appliance night time otherwise I can hear it from bedroom,
Not recommended, will replace with more expensive one after bathroom refurb.
If you are deaf go for it otherwise don't
