    First came double sockets with integrated USB outlet, now BG has a double socket with USB and a built in wifi repeater.
    I think i'll just stop using 500v dc across L & N completely.


    I'm now waiting for double socket with integrated toilet roll holder.

    These devices are a complete pain.

    And all these downlights and fancy light fittings ....

    How are we supposed to do proper IR testing these days

    Linking L + N to cpc isn't that helpful if you are fault finding RCD tripping ....

    but we are electricians, murdoch. we work magic even without having to bung 500V d.c. up a circuit. with a earth leakage clamp meter and a sense of touch and smell, we can find a fault just by being there. :D:D:D.

    once upon a time i was called out to a local GP's house. RCD randomly tripping. as it was 9.30 p.m. i placed a couple of aspirins on top of his CU, telling him to phone me in the morning if it was not better.

    You could have referred the Doc to the IET, for further treatment, that's what my GP normally does, unless of course a pill will do, in that case bring it on.

    Back to basics, I say...far too may combined devices these days...
    However, I'd vote for these...remember when you got a fag holder on your toilet roll holder?

    To open bottles...
    ones you brought in cos the minibar is so fkn expensive?
    Or even to open the ones from the minibar...you can't steal the wall-mounted ones so easily.

    Maybe some can, but does it say on them before you start testing.
    And what happens when joe blogs plugs in his new Samsung to charge just when you press the button?

    Any new jobs now i'll be testing before fitting anything electronic.

    Also WPS button on your router. press both, it connects the repeater or device to your router without having to fill in any network key password.
