British General’s (BG Electrical) new fast charge USB-C sockets are designed to offer installers an upsell opportunity and said to be ideal for customers in both domestic and commercial settings.

Whilst the number of portable devices requiring USB charging continues to increase, most of these are only supplied with the charging cable and no plug adaptor. BG’s new 45W fast charge USB socket has an integrated USB-C and USB-A port, and is ideal for home offices, coffee shops and education facilities, as it is capable of charging high power devices such as laptops, tablets and video equipment as well as smartphones and other USB devices. 

Featuring smart charging with variable voltage, this socket supports both high and low power needs, as it only delivers the power the device needs, when it needs it. 

For those who simply need to charge their smartphone and lower powered devices, there is also a 22W fast charge option which can deliver a 50% charge to mobile phones in just 30 minutes.

The super-fast 45W and fast 22W sockets will be available across multiple BG Electrical ranges including the Nexus Metal, White Moulded, Evolve and Flatplate ranges in the full range of colours and finishes. There will also be a smaller range of 15W and 12W sockets in the White Moulded and Nexus Metal finishes for those who do not require fast charging and are working to a lower budget.

This more sustainable charging solution is a great option for consumers who have limited space near sockets or prefer a more minimalist look. The integrated ports reduce the need for additional 3-pin plug adapters or extension leads and as such, reduces electrical waste for the environmentally conscious. 

BG USB sockets feature colour coded in-line terminals with backed out captive screws and fit a 25mm back box making them quick and easy to install. These sockets are certified to the latest British Standards and carry the Asta Diamond mark, so they can be installed with confidence without worrying about callbacks.

The new range of sockets can be purchased from all good electrical wholesalers.
