    Not good if you want a quick charge .

    • Why, won't your charger work with these powerpoints?

      • An independent charger will work fine from the power points .

    • Why do you say that? Isn't 2.1A good enough for a quick charge

      • +3

        The 2.1A is shared by the 2 ports that's total supply so if your charging 2 items it will be a lot less than 2.1A .

        • The 2.1A is shared by the 2 ports

          Are you sure about that?

          • +2

            @jv: Yes .listed in product description 2 x Switched Power Outlets, 2 x USB Ports(Total 2.1A)

      • Quick charge is determined by voltage primarily as well as amps. You can't do quick charge with only 5v

        5v 2.1amps is the charging speed of the very old phones.

        • 5v 2.1amps is the charging speed of the very old phones.

          …but also charges the very newest phones absolutely fine. As long as you can get through the day, then just plug it in when you go to bed and then it doesn't matter how long it takes 👍

  • Do these draw current even when not in use?

    • Depends what you mean by not in use. Looking at the photos, they have spring loaded covers over the USB ports. Typically these are connected to micro-switches, so when the cover is closed, the USB module is off, so no current draw. However if for convenience you leave a cable plugged in, just with no device at the other end, then obviously it would be powered on and thus use some power. Same is true of leaving a charger plugged in though.

    I'd be hesitant to put these in with USB-A type ports. They will be obsolete within a few years. Pretty much all new tech is moving to USB-C.

    • +2

      Something like this with USB-C will be useful.


      • Looks similar to what Bunnings had:

        The one of the screws is blocked by another wire and is a pain to get installed.

        • HAD or has?
          Out of stock at my local… but damn I want one

          • @Z80: bought it a while ago and was limited stock back then. I use it to charge my wireless mouse/keyboard and headphones rather then waste a usb port. 3.6v on a single plug is fast enough and slow charging overnight is fine and probably better for most batteries rather then fast charging.

        • Thats a terrible choice, 3.6a across three ports… might as well only have one port.

    • Yeah bought something recently that had a microusb sized hole in the case, but a USB-C jack behind it. Likely the USB-C was cheaper/more available, so they just switched.

      Which brings up a point. 24-pins (some duplicated due to working both ways) on USB-C, but you don't have to use all of them. For power, could just connect 5V and GND. All that is needed to power something like a Raspberry Pi. Could connect the USB 2.0 D+/- pins for power negotiation which will give you QC, etc. But then a A to C cable will work just as well. For PD need the CC pins connected and that actually requires Type-C. Then there's the extra 2 data pairs for USB3, not really relevant for a power point though and one again doesn't require Type-C, just a 9-pin Type-A jack. So wouldn't say Type-A ports will be obsolete. Just keyed and no PD.

    • I thought Lightning was the latest and greatest?

    • Its already obsolete.

    • You could try these: https://store.sockitz.com.au/product/all-new-classic-usb-c-s...

      I haven't tried this particular product before but I've had Sockitz USB A power points installed in my house for 5+ years

    • Works perfectly fine charging smartwatches.

  • +1

    Bought some a few years back. Works fine and stops the kids bugging me from finding the chargers they've just lost.

    • Also got a couple of clipsal ones from a few years ago and they are so slow no one ever uses them .
      EDIT : From memory they were $80 each .

    • I find it quite quick, but I am usually only charging 1 device at a time.
