LAP 13A 2-Gang DP Switched Socket & 2.1A 2-Gang USB Charger Polished Chrome is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value but be aware! Firstly regarding the fitting these were very easy to fit as long as you have the required space. The description says you need a 35mm back box so I checked before buying and found I had a 25mm back box plus the depth of the kitchen tiles and I had enough cable length to easily move them from terminating at the bottom of the old socket to the top of the new one. It took me no more than 10 minutes to fit each one. Obviously if you are trying to fit into a smaller space than the recommended you are going to have issues and that is not a fault with the item. They are very good value compared to the branded makes also available on Screwfix. However, when I was charging two devices I found that the iPad charge kept dropping in and out. Initially I thought they were faulty but when I read the instructions I realised that the output from the USB sockets is a total of 2.1A. Unfortunately a lot of modern devices like iPad chargers are 2.1A and therefore you can only charge one device at a time from this socket. You are able to charge two lower draw items like a couple of phones. There are other sockets on Screwfix where you can have 3 or 4 USB outlets giving you up to a total of 4A of charging output but unfortunately for me I need to use the LAP polished chrome screwless version to match the rest of the electrical outlets in the room (and house). I still like the item but would prefer to be able to plug two iPad's into it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2-Gang DP 13A Switched Socket I put deep back boxes in so I had no issue with fitting. My issue is with the humming noise from the transformers. Will need to be replaced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to install I purchased some of these units having read others complaining about the size. They were not wrong as they are a very tight fit in the box. What I hadn't considered was there was no allowance to adjust the front plate so how ever level the box is fitted is how level the plate will be. Also the walls need to be glass flat if you want a good fit of the plate. Customer found they didn't charge 2 iDevices at the same time (2.1 usb output) so I have had to swap them out for Wandsworth square units which look much better when installed. Next time I will try and source Wandsworth plates as the few quid saved is soon lost in fiddling around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chrome double socket with USB Great product at a great price. Finish is great. Have fitted lots of these with no problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fitting problems Trouble is the fitting is VERY tight. The switch internal top molding touches the back box so I had to file a bit out so you could activate the switches.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warning !!! Absolute nightmare to install. If you don't have a deep box you have got a very slim chance of connecting it up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea but not great With so many things requiring USB chargers nowadays this is a good idea, trouble is the fitting is VERY tight. The switch internal top moulding touches the back box so I had to file a bit out so you could activate the switches. Don't know about the USB reliability yet but for that amount of money I want easy-to-fit and fit-and-forget not worry about if it's going to continue working or not. I can see me doing the whole house with this style, not , however, with this actual product
