The USB facility is great, saves having to plug in and unplug charges and move them around the house. Does an okay job of charging the iPhone, not the strongest charge it receives but better than nothing. This product could be better if it was able to switch off once the charge is complete, or if it had separate isolation switch for the USB ports.
Looks expensive on a budget
Really nice looking sockets price was better than other places have not yet put them on the wall but I’m sure they’ll look great
Why can't you buy anything these days without being pestered for a review? And no "unsubscribe" link in the email. Product itself is OK.
The USB circuitry consumes very little power, so these sockets are considered a straight swap for existing non-USB versions.

when a fault occurred in the new embedded circuitry then it might be better to have a switch so that it could be easily turned off and unplugged

what i meant was embedding components into the main socket has deviate from the original easily replaceable 3 pin plug design.. and non technical people need to call a electrician when the components embedded into the socket has failed..

in my opinion i think that the product should be recalled then redesigned in a way that the usb socket can be unplugged and replaced easily, if a component failed like a capacitor that can degrade over time then you would be left with a non working usb socket attached to your wall

For a dishwasher and dryer these would not be suitable. Those appliances need dedicated supplies, not ones also running usb chargers.
This one would be better: https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8198756...
