Make Your Home 21st Century Friendly With NewerTech's Power2U AC/USB Outlet
I was fortunate enough to receive a review unit to try out. I thought it would be great to place it in the kitchen where my Fiance keeps her purse.
We have our chargers plugged in the bedroom, and sometimes we need to plug in the phone in other areas. It's a pain digging out the charger and such. Installation was very easy. Just make sure to disable the power, and follow the easy instructions. It's pretty simple to install.
What makes it well worth the price is that your phone charger doesn't take up a plug, so you can plug in other appliances as well.
Dual-socket wall outlet with two integrated USB ports for powering and charging USB devices.
The Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet is the safe in-wall solution for conveniently powering and charging USB devices at home. Now you can charge and/or power up to four devices at once when using the USB 3.0/2.0 ports and standard three-prong outlets, while eliminating unsightly clutter created by multiple cables and bulky power adapters.
Ideal Home Upgrade For Multiple Device Users
Ideal for homes with users of multiple USB chargeable devices, the Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet is a basic "DIY" install on any 15Amp circuit with a 16 cubic inch electrical box** to blend seamlessly into the wall as a standard power outlet. A "straightforward" rated "how to" video demonstrates how the Power2U can be installed in as little as 20 minutes.
Money Saving, Energy Efficient Design
Offering a modern, centralized location for charging/powering USB devices, the Power2U offers two energy efficient features to complement its use convenience. The Smart Power design only outputs enough charging power required by the attached device, while spring-loaded Safety Shutters turn power off to the USB ports to eliminate "vampire" energy draw when a connecting cable is removed.
Install With Confidence
Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet is the first home-safe, fully UL Listed and approved product of its kind! Beware of knockoffs and other similar in-wall solutions which misrepresent or do not have verified UL approval.
