Prices per outlet type
The biggest factor in the price for installing a power socket is the type you choose, which varies from € 3 to € 50 . Most electricians include this cost in the total project quote. If a homeowner already has materials or needs a special unit, an electrician will only charge for the installation.
Standard 120-volt sockets are usually at the lower end of the spectrum for €3 to €5 each. These devices can deliver up to 16 amps. The actual voltage varies from 110-125 volts and manufacturers build modern devices to withstand the variations. A standard 16-amp, 120V with two USB ports costs £13 to £22. By placing USB ports in the power outlet, you can plug smartphones, tablets and other USB-powered devices directly into the power outlet to charge.
