Socket to the energy bill: 5-bed home with stupid number of power outlets leaves us asking... why?

You can get USB outlets that are rated for the 500V test : 'Big Clive' recently featured one on his youtube channel.

However, I'm not at all convinced of the wisdom of installing low-cost switching power supplies in semi-permanent installations. This sort of electronics tends to have a short life with a fiery ending. I'd much rather have additional BS sockets with a replaceable converter plugged in.
