UK Mains Socket with USB

Maplin have just introduced a new UK 13A mains wall socket with built-in USB.  The £14.99 device should help to clear up the scourge of the dreaded wall wart that scars the walls of many a room.

The recent move to micro USB chargers by mobile phone manufacturers will mean you can use it for your cell phone as well as power or charge iPods, MP3 players, game consoles, digital cameras and a host of other consumer electronics.

The initial design is available in a single socket format only (one each mains and USB sockets) and is un-switched.  Read on for the full specs…

  • Standard 13A wall socket with a built-in USB socket
  • Charge any USB powered device without losing the use of your wall socket
  • USB socket is suitable for charging and powering mobile phones, iPods, iPhones, PDAs, MP3 players, game consoles, digital cameras and more
  • Safety shutter on USB socket
  • Input : AC 100-240V / 50/60Hz / 80mA / 3W
  • Output : DC 5V / 600mA
  • Dimensions: 86mm (l) x 86mm (w) x 35mm (d)
  • Weight: 97g
