    Shaver outlets are designed for one item only, there is no way to safely connect two or more.

    Yeah, I guess the solution is installing more than one...

    aren't these items only meant to be charged once a week to prolong battery life.

    They don't need to be charged at the same time do they???
    Do you have a light above the mirror that a shaver could be plugged into ?

    Well, the toothbrush only lasts a couple of days and we always forget to put it on charge; the shaver has a cleaning station that I would like to use every day, so I would like to avoid plugging and unplugging

    Anyway, can the power be taken from a light in the downstairs toilet instead of the bathroom itself? (this way I would be able to conceal the cable better)

    Have you got a massive mouth? Or use it for "alternative therapy"?
    Mine lasts a good 10-14 days

    I was going to say time to invest in a new tooth brush. I buy new one each year normally in the Christmas sale for around £30 the charge lasts on average 7 days.
