NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter Review
Well, this is a new role for me - A Product Reviewer, but in this case, I really need to share this with
you. It answered my dilemma about being able to charge my iOS5 devices in a "safe" and efficient way. Look at the
picture above. At first blush it looks like a normal 2 outlet wall outlet, but notice the two additional USB charging
ports. By installing these outlets in select locations in your house, you can literally plug, play & charge anywhere.
I installed one unit to do a quick evaluation, and immediately got hooked. The quality of the unit is
top-notch (beware of imitations) and the price has been reduced. Couple that with OWC's Newer Technology reputation and
you have a winner. One thing I need to caution you about - that is be sure to follow the installation instructions
concerning the dressing of the wiring inside the standard outlet box. Space is very limited and a mislaid wire can make
the outlet hard to seat into the box - but have no fear - it will fit.
