    the usual copy/paste for this deal

    • screws are larger than standard
    • hole placement is slightly higher when using with standard c clips
    • 2.4A is shared between both USB ports

    legally, yes you do need a licensed electrician.

    this is also $1 more than previous deals at $12.99

      Any alternatives worth considering that would fit a standard (Clipsal) hole and has better USB power output?

      • +1

        I'd like to know the same thing. I've been looking at the ones with one or two USB-A plus a USB-C port, but don't want to end up with the kind of problem raised here.

          If replacing an existing power point in a drywall then it's simple (use the existing c-clip and screws). Brick walls and new installations not that straightforward.

    • legally, yes you do need a licensed electrician.

      legally, it is more a regulation than a law. A more a request by the industry lobbyists who wrote the regulations, than anything a court might be interested in.

      But if you do not follow standards, and something goes wrong, you may be held liable.

    I can see the appeal in these, but with USB charging technology changing every couple of years I don't see the point. You'll end up using the charger that came with your phone or whatever anyway because it is many times faster.

    And 2.4A shared between two USB-A ports in 2021 is a bit of a joke.

      You do know you don't have to charge phones with these, right? Other things are powered by usb with low amperage requirements like diffusers.

        Same, I'm considering one in a bathroom reno for shaver, bluetooth speaker, things always connected that don't need quick charge.

    • I don't need to charge my phone faster as I leave it connected overnight. Same goes with my smartwatch. So for some people it is not a joke considering the price difference between this double powerpoint WITH two usb charging ports versus a high current charger only.
