    And for once B&Q are cheaper at £12 each compared to SF at £15.07 Backboxes at £4 (B&Q) are a bit much though!

    They do sell the surface mount boxes at SF.

    BG and MK are the only USB sockets i would put in myself. Everything else is, as you said, cheap tat.
    I attempted to change two sockets with LAP ones as the rest of the installation had them, Live terminal screw sheered on one and Earth on the other. Which makes me laugh the Wickes own cheapo ones are of better construction...:rolleyes:

    I went to house a while back that had been rewired and owner couldn't get hold of spark that did it, he had fitted whole house in lap sockets and switches had to change a load of them, I mean it bad enough using that tat but surely there was enough profit in job not to use it,
