Good morning,

Today, it is unusual to find someone who does not use at least one battery powered device, such as a smart phone, e-book or tablet, on a daily basis. Gerintech has sought to introduce a low cost fix for the householder by exchanging standard sockets for ones that incorporate dedicated USB ports within the faceplate. These ports are capable of charge currents up to 2.1 Amps.

  • Remember that in Australia it's illegal to do electrical wiring without a licence.

    • It is. But that's a ridiculous law to prop up an industry and to protect dumb people.

      I was charged $80 for one install - never again.

      • $80 is pretty good.

        I got quoted around $400 just to replace a ceiling light bulb (batten) holder and other places i rang wasnt even interested. Many sparkys wont take a job worth less than $400 imo

        The exact same batten holder costs a few bucks at bunnings and a 5min straight swap over.

        • Yeah, I was going to say $80 is pretty cheap if the tradie even turns up these days

          • @unique452: some stuff, like testing of electrical equipment if its safe, was pretty cheap like $40 for 8 devices

            takes some work it be a sparky though

      • I'm a sparkey I can do it for $60

          I watch youtube videos i can do it for free

          • @mokr: Yer it's pretty complicated lol. 3 colours red black green.

            Just got to be careful copper is not showing and screws are tight. You don't want arching to happen burn down your house and loose it all because your not insured on a gpo that you installed.

            Not much at risk u'll be fine.

      • I was charged a$100 call out fee plus the cost and labour of replacing a front porch light which took him 20 mins to complete the whole job and the total bill is $250. Tradies in general earn such good money and I should never encouraged my kids to get a degree but to get a trade then their living is sorted.

      • I agree, but as a firefighter I have seen people have insurance denied on house fires when it's found that they've done some of their own wiring.

        Can you afford to lose $350,000 to save $60?

    • Is it to expensive to get one? What are they called?

    • Remember that in WA it is illegal to possess more than 50kg of potatoes.
      it is illegal to eat meat on Fridays, or you will go to hell.

  • Always good to see this deal, but would love it in brushed aluminium.

  • If only they were also smart.

  • How much power does this use when no usb devices plugged in?

  • Do these draw power even when nothing is plugged in?

    I got one of these last time there was an offer. It is slightly larger than my existing power points, requiring a change of wall frame and enlarging of the wall hole. So don't think installing one of these is necessarily an easy job.

    • Scope of works: 3 wires (earth, live and neutral), buy a new bracket from bunnies and use a knife to enlarge the current hole.

  • Thanks OP. Hopefully they fit in the current cutoffs I have.
    Bought 2.

  • Check the review be aware of installation problems as quoted:

    OK, they work, but installing them is a real chore. I bought 2 and one was missing a screw to secure an incoming wire to the powerpoint. It took a while to find a replacement as it was a non standard thread for this part. Then the screws to mount it to the plaster clip were the wrong size/thread so I had to buy some from Bunnings (about $6!). Then I found it doesn't fit the standard plaster clip as the mounting holes are higher than normal so this took another 1/2 hour per powerpoint to modifiy the plaster clips. Turned what should have been a quick job into a long arduous one but at least they worked when all done.

    • If the 2 screws are in a non-standard place, that will be a real problem in many cases, especially when replacing an existing outlet.

  • WOFTAM (Waste OF Time and Money) Not even qc3 so pay $13 plus installation of $60.
    Better spending money on qc3 chargers….

    • Literally no clue what you are on about.

      • NCWYAOA (No Clue What You Are On About)

      • Qualcomm QC3 (upper case!) is a "quick charge over USB" method used by many Android phones.
        But it is as non-standard as the Apple 2.1A.

        The future of quick-charge is in USP-PD (over USB-C), so for hard-wired wall-sockets, that would be the ideal way to go.

        But nobody should be buying the cheap oulets if they have to pay a sparky to install. Just get a plug-in charger as GP said.

  • So to confirm these do not straight fit a standard nailed on to stud or plaster fitting metal bracket?

    • Bought two of these to replace our old HPM double power points. The screw points fit the standard plaster board metal mount but the lower edge wouldn't fit in so have to file down the metal mount frame in order to fit this in

  • Is it easy DIY?

  • $66 for a 6 pack on another listing. $11 each.

    Description says "This replacement wall plate is a standard wall plate size, and easily replaces existing power points" so hopefully you wouldn't have the same installation issues.

    Will get a pack with the 10% cash rewards cashback and give them a shot!
