Add USB Ports To Your Wall Outlets

Add USB Ports To Your Wall Outlets


By Chris Scott Barr

How many gadgets do you have that recharge via USB? Sure, you could just plug them into your PC, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a wall outlet that accommodated your recharging needs? Well now you can have just that, without the need for a plug-in adapter. Check out this TruePower UCS power socket. It uses the same connections as your existing outlets, so it’s just a matter of swapping one out for the other.

At $10 a pop, it might be worthwhile to invest in a couple. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait until sometime next year for it to ship.

  1. Does the socket its self consume any power? Does it have a surge protector to protect the device attached to the USB? Is it 5 v? Can I stick my tongue in it?

  2. While it could be useful right now, it won't be in a few years when everyone's electronics are using USB 3.0, which draws more power and has an elongated plug that won't fit into legacy sockets.
