U-Socket USB Wallplug


Everything these days seem to be powered via USB cable, doesn’t it?  For example, the iPhone comes with a USB cable and a USB adapter that plugs into your wall outlet.  Wouldn’t it be easier to just have to worry about one cable and not about the adapter since many of the cables for our gadgets double as a data port.

Fortunately, Fastmac realized that it would be easier to just combine the USB ports with everyday wall outlets by putting 2 USB ports right next to the standard wallplugs.U-Socket

These units are a little bigger than standard outlets, however, and require a 16-cubic-inch electrical box to accommodate it.  The two USB 3.0-compliant ports have a 12W of total charging power and are rated at 2.4A, meaning that they will charge a device like the iPad at full speed but will noticeably slow down when two devices are plugged in at the same time (Engadget).

If you’re not really into electrical work, don’t risk your well-being and electrocute yourself, so learn how to properly change outlets or pay to get it done.

Once you switch, you’ll be able to go from computer to wall socket without depending on those wall adapters.
