titleAs a necessary evil, gadget batteries, require charging from time to time and in this era where gadgets now dominate our everyday life it has become difficult to even find room to even plug them all in. For the most part longer battery life and charging stations have been the answer, but thanks to Newer Technologies there is a much easier solution to this problem and it is as simple as changing the wall outlet you plug everything into already. Follow me as I take a look at the do it yourselfers’ solution to the charging problem, the Power2U AC/USB wall outlet.

It really is the depth (Its larger then a standard GFCI) but 18 and 20 boxes are more common the newer your house is. Still, if you really want one somewhere "old work" boxes are not expensive, nor are they hard to install.

My boss did a kind of sudo review on one of these a few weeks ago..

He commented that "The only complaint we see comes from the depth requirements of the device requiring the use of an extended depth 16 cubic inch gem box, meaning most existing wall boxes are too shallow to accommodate the new outlet."

Other than that they seem to be great! In fact, if you live in the Ft. Wayne area, we have them in stock! ;)

mem0man, what problems did you have with the size? was it the depth or the width. Really thinking about buying one of these for our kitchen where we charge our devices.

With all of the focus on gadgets and how to charge them Other World Computing sent us a much more direct solution. Check out the Power2U wall outlet and see what you think.
