Shaving socket

"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."

Cut the cost and your beard
8 Jul 2013
By Retiree
, Eastleigh, Hants
"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 Daimack
, 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."

attractive

"As a standard white faceplate, this is a very attractive looking shaver socket. Whenever using white would only use this one.
Works perfectly and very reliable."

Excellent Value
23 Jun 2013
By Springhill
, Poole Dorset
"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 DIYerMaker
, 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 psion739
, 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."

Poor quality

"Very difficult to actuall insert a plug into the sockets. When you do finally get it inserted, the electrical connection is very hit and miss. Cheap and it shows."

"Works as it should and install was easy enough.
Transformer buzzes which is a little annoying.
The one it replaced (same model but older) made no buzzing."
