  • wonder if usb-c ones will ever happen or we skip straight to qi everywhere

        Deta are garbage, any decent Electrician wouldn't touch it.

        • +2

          Last time everyone was raving about SockITz on whirlpool and ozbargain so I bought 3 for my new place and got them installed by an electrician.

          2 of the units the USBs ports failed, normal power outlets are fine. When a device is plugged in via the USB ports it makes a buzzing noise on the third one which happens to be beside by bed. I ended up getting all of them replaced ($$$).

        • I have used Deta a few times, no issues so far, but I do t use their USB port devices

        • +4

          I know several commercial electricians who have no problem with Deta at all.
          Maybe leave recommendations to people with actual knowledge in the field.

          • @bazzaa:

            I know several commercial electricians who have no problem with Deta at all.

            Do they use Deta all week for their commercial work or just for the weekend cashies?

            Comments like that below from wfdTamar just further justify why there's no chance I'd touch a Deta product that a wire terminates into.

        • Seems to come down to the particular product. An electrician I spoke to said his brother had some of the Deta USB PowerPoints catch fire or melt (can't remember exactly what, but not good). Their normal products seem as good as HPM ones and some are better - for example the HPM Aqua outdoor PowerPoints I got didn't even switch. Maybe HPM are thought of as so so too. The electricians wanted to use Clipsal (which they supply - no surprise there).

          I wouldn't install them as the standards change too often. Plain USB is virtually on its way out for USB C. In 5 years that will be out.

      • The problem with Deta is their switch placement. Plug anything in with a chonky transformer and you cover the switch. Clipsal are the same with the switch above the socket. Better to have them space to the side, but i guess when you want the 'no screw' faceplate you have to compromise

    From previous comments

    • yes, legally you need an electrician to install
    • screws are bigger than standard C plate, either drill bigger hole and tap it or use different screws
    • USB output is 2.1A total, not each
    • +4

      That is not fair… What are we meant to discuss now?

      • Buy from a reputable and well established brand such as Clipsal.

      If this company can't even use the standard type of screw for an Australian wall plate, I can't say I'd be putting any faith in their engineering design and quality control.

        It is annoying but an easy fix, whitebait for an electrician

        It's also enough ground to get a partial refund back from Amazon 😁

        • Savage ozbargain tips 🤣

      2.1 TOTAL? Not much point of having 2 then, plugging two devices in will be super slow if they charge at all.

      Maybe smart watches and headphones excepted.

      • I keep a type-C and a lightning cable plugged in due to different devices

        I'm generally only using one at a time though

    • +1

      Also keep in mind that some (like my Costco ones) have a bigger mechanism and so require a bigger hole than may have been there originally, esp if you are replacing very old points which were smaller St the rear. If you are replacing a point in brick, tiles, or asbestos, that could be an issue for you

  • usb is to slow …got similar one to charge iphone 10s it is painful to watch.

    • +1

      For those who like to watch their phones charging, I'd recommend a more powerful charger.

    • Probably better for overnight

  • +1

    Another reminder that unlike standard GPOs, these are really bulky on the back. So they are a major pain (near impossible) to install into solid walls.

  • WOFTAM google it….
