Rather than limiting the individual ports to half the overall allowance per port resulting in much slower charging times, the Group Gear USB Charging Plate has the potential to power up to 2 Amp from one single port. That means that your iPad will charge much faster than with other chargers.
  • 2 Amp intelligent split – 2 Amp is split between the 2 USB ports however each port only pulls the required power, allowing an optimum charging rate rather than a reduced slower rate.
  • The 2 Amp combined USB ports are powerful enough to quickly charge a single smartphone, it will swiftly charge two smartphones or similar devices together or charge a Tablet PC with ease.
  • Fits any standard double back box (minimum depth of 25mm).
  • Currently available in white but other colours and metal finishes are coming soon.
  • Simple retro fit socket.
  • The USB charging sockets are limited at 2 Amp, if the current exceeds this it will automatically trip off to protect your devices.

  • If no device is connected, the transformer shuts down and power is not supplied to the USB ports/
  • Once a device is plugged in this activates the amplifier and power is supplied to the required USB ports.
