These days it seems like we have endless devices that need to be charged. We have iPads, Tablets, iPods, SmartPhones, laptops and way more. With a family of 5, we don’t just have one iPod, SmartPhone or laptop, we have more than needs to be mentioned :0 We all want our devices charged and ready to go when we are.

Sometimes the big clunky plugs don’t allow for use of both wall outlets. We are forced to get adapters that allow for multiple plugs and things start to look messy.

I was excited to discover NewerTech Power2U over at Other World Computing.

"Built-in Power and USB Charging Convenience
Power2U is the convenient and energy-efficient in-wall solution for powering and charging USB devices. Unlike other similar products, Power2U’s USB port layout doesn’t create “plug barriers”. This accessible design enables you to charge up to four devices simultaneously via power outlets and USB.

Choice Designer Colors
With a variety of colors to suit almost any decor, the Power2U couples versatile charging with good looks.

Your choice of:
Black, Light Almond, White, or Ivory. Power2U Energy Efficient Design Features Smart circuitry only outputs the power required to charge the attached device. Spring-loaded Safety Shutters turn power off to the USB ports to eliminate “vampire” energy draw when a connecting cable is removed.

Apple iPad (all models) Apple iPhone (all models) Apple iPod (all USB chargeable models) Android tablets and phones, tablet computers, cellphones, gaming systems (Nintendo, Sony PSP, etc.), Bluetooth headsets, digital cameras, or GPS devices which charge via standard USB.

Do-It-Yourself Upgrade With Peace of Mind
Power2U offers peace of mind and confidence being fully UL-Listed with NEC compliant tamper-resistant AC receptacles2. The Power2U is a basic “DIY” upgrade for any 16 cubic inch sized3 electrical box on a 15 Amp or 20 Amp circuit.

The free how-to installation video shows how you can have a Power2U installed in as little as 20 minutes!"

I have to admit that I absolutely love the idea of having the ability to charge 4 devices in one wall outlet. I also really love the idea of being able to charge via USB. The NewerTech Power 2U has to be one of the best upgrades for your home. Every outlet should have the NewerTech Power 2U outlet, it just makes sense.

The NewerTech Power 2U is for use in Canada and the US and comes in 15 Amp and 20 Amp. 15 Amp is for use with 15A circuits typically found in home and residential living spaces. 20 Amp is for use with 20A circuits typically found in kitchens, bathrooms, garages, business, and commercial spaces.

But don’t just take my word on how awesome NewerTech Power2U is, also take into account that it is a PTPA Winner.
