Power socket with USB ports

Tom Wiggins shared the following picture on twitter with the message “Most excited I’ve been about some new technology in a very long time”

I have to agree, it does seem like a good solution to having multiple chargers floating around the office (or in my case, kitchen). However it does not solve the problem of suppliers who produce items that don’t work with a universal charger sucn as exploding e-cigarettes.

In addition a few people questions what kind of current is drawn when there is no load on the socket. I can’t find anything on the specific model mention but MK have a press release about how their new USB charging module have a zero standby current.
