It seems like all the new technology: phones, tablets, toys etc..all come with USB plug charging cords. So when I saw this awesome Wall Outlet with USB Ports I needed to have these in my home! So cool. I was so excited to try them out since they sent them to me for review.

It was pretty simple for my husband to install this wall outlet with USB ports since he is familiar with regular outlet installation. It comes with instructions and they even have a link at the top of the page which you can visit to watch a video guide of how to install it. It took him around 20 minutes total from start to finish. I think it's safe to say it's easy enough for anyone to be able to install, it just might take longer for someone without any experience.

"The Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet is the convenient and energy-efficient in-wall solution for powering and charging USB devices. Now you can charge and/or power up to four devices at once when using the USB ports and the National Electrical Code (NEC) compliant tamper-resistant AC receptacles, while eliminating unsightly clutter created by multiple cables and bulky power adapters."

Right away I love how the USB ports are always closed while not in use. It has been so great being able to charge up to 4 devices on just one outlet.

Charge Four Devices At Once!
"Unlike other similar products, the port and outlet layout of the Power2U doesn't create "plug barriers". This accessible design enables you to charge up to four devices simultaneously!"

It's really great. Also, we always seem to lose the wall outlet plug for our USB charging cords, so now that will no longer be a problem. We don't need them!

"Offering a modern, centralized location for charging/powering USB devices, the Power2U offers two energy efficient features to complement its use convenience. The Smart circuitry 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."

We love having these outlets in our home they are so convenient, I highly recommend having at least one in your home!
