Default Trying to source "Edison" sockets to match existing

I've a 2015 Swift Bordeaux. I'm wanting to replace a couple of sockets hopefully with the ones with integrated USB charge sockets. I thought it would be easy to find a website selling the same make "Edison" fitted already but I can't find a source for this make of socket anywhere.

Can anyone offer up any ideas as to where I may find this make of socket.

Found an online catalogue for Edison electrical accessories, but they don't appear to do USB sockets.

You can have whatever sockets take your fancy fitted, but as above you will struggle to find a matching colour and design as the rest of the sockets in your caravan. What I would be aware off, is that the USB part of the socket is permanently on and a potential fire risk, also if your caravan electrics are tested, the USB sockets have to be removed to prevent them being damaged. Also if your going to be charging an iPad, make sure that the USB socket can provide at least 2.1A.

Don't know whether this is any use to you. In this week's offers Aldi are advertising Workzone double sockets with 2 USB sockets. The colours are Stainless Steel or Black Nickel. 14.99 each.
