USB Wall Plate – how is THIS for COOL TECH!
The USB wall plate is a simple replacement for your standard electric plug wall plate with the addition of 2 USB ports! Now, no more having to charge your smart phone with your computer, or your dock – just plug anything USB into the USB wall plate and get charged!
Hey Moms: Just think, one place to charge the Nintendo DS and your iPad – you can tell the kids – CHARGE IT THERE, rather than running around trying to remember where you left your electronics to charge (story of our life in this house!).
We have one of these USB wall plates in a box that is waiting for installation in our new house. I see many more in our future as it seems everything needs to be charged with a USB port!
Purchase a USB Wall Plate
Modernize your home and office. U-Socket is an AC receptacle with built-in USB ports that can power ANY device that is capable of being charged via USB, including iPods, iPhones and iPads. Designed to replace a traditional 3-prong AC wall outlet, U-Socket eliminates the clutter of AC Adapters that stick out and take up space. Enjoy the convenience of USB ports built right into the wall. In addition to keeping things neat and organized, U-Socket reduces your energy costs thanks to its 5-star energy efficient design that auto senses the required wattage and only outputs full power if something is connected to it. Designed and made in USA, U-Socket is 100-percent safe and listed to multiple UL, NEC and IEC (International Electrical Commission) standards.
USB Surge Protector Outlet
In our bedroom, we currently have one of these Belkin 6 Outlet Surge Protector with USB. It’s totally handy for charging all of ourdevices, but it’s a bit bulky and not as sleek and clean as the USB wall plate shown above.
Six Outlets with 900 Joules of Surge Protection
The Belkin Advanced Surge Protector allows you to power up to six electrical devices using two AC outlets. Rated to withstand a power surge of up to 900 joules, this surge protector is specifically designed to safeguard small electronics. Oversized metal oxide varistors (MOVs) absorb excess electricity for increased protection.
In addition, a Surge Protection Indicator lets you know your equipment is protected, while a Not-Grounded Indicator warns you when your outlet is not properly grounded.
Two USB Charging Ports for Portable Devices
The Advanced Surge Protector features rapid, one-source charging for cell-phones, MP3 players, or any other USB-enabled device–no AC adapter required.
