It's that time of year, everyone! The Holiday shopping season is upon us! (At least it is if you're like me and get an early start to avoid the mad rush of frazzled, last-minute shoppers in December!)
For the 2017 Holiday season, I will be featuring tons of great gift ideas for babies, kids, men, women, pets, and even for the person who has everything. We all have some of those on our gift lists, don't we? There will even be loads and loads of chances to win many of the gifts I am featuring. How cool is that?! You can check out my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide at any time from now till Christmas. Make sure to check often, as it will be growing by the day!
Today, I want to talk about technology that makes life easier for all of us.
NewerTech, a leading developer of Macintosh, PC, iPod, iPhone, and iPad accessories, offers a next generation NewerTech Power2U dual USB wall outlet that enables convenient charging of up to four mobile devices at a single electrical outlet. The Power2U features two traditional 15 amp power outlets, plus two USB ports delivering an additional 2.5 amps via the USB ports, making the wall outlets “today ready” for charging the increasing numbers of mobile devices.
Designed for Easy Installation
The new Power2U utilizes a 14 cubic inch form factor, making it easy to install in virtually any electrical box. The new compact design features integrated 14 gauge copper pigtails for easy installation and utilizes a standard wall plate which also allows installation in more places, even in multi-gang configurations.
The new Power2U is fully listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and features tamper-resistant AC sockets that are compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC). The Power2U is designed to meet current building codes and be safe for use in homes and offices. Users can install Power2U in minutes thanks to the compact design and free how-to installation video.
Ideal “DIY” Upgrade For Multiple Device Homes
The emergence of different types of electronic devices increases the need for electrical outlets in modern households. Lamps, clocks, appliances and other household items now compete with portable electronic items for a power outlet. Power2U is a great solution for multi-device homes as it allows for up to four devices to be charged at a single outlet. Whether in an office, living room, or beside a bed, the Power2U delivers convenience and blends seamlessly anywhere wall outlets can be installed. Power2U is available in four colors for more choices in matching existing decor - White, Black, Light Almond and Ivory.
Money Saving, Energy-Efficient Design
To prevent “vampire” energy draw, the updated Power2U incorporates internal micro-switches to conserve energy when not in use. The micro-switches turn on the USB power transformer only when a plug is inserted into the port, preventing vampire energy draw. While most USB charging devices are constantly drawing power, Power2U has always been uniquely designed to draw power only when a device is connected for charging. With five percent of U.S. energy consumed by vampire power of appliances and computer equipment, the updated Power2U is a smart energy decision that can reduce monthly energy bills.
The Power2U is compatible with mobile and handheld devices that support charging through a USB port, including:
● Apple iPad (all models)
● Apple iPhone (all models)
● Apple iPod (all USB-chargeable models)
● Android tablets and phones with USB charging
● Tablet computers, cell phones, gaming systems (Nintendo, SONY PlayStation Portable, etc.), Bluetooth headsets, digital cameras and GPS devices that charge via standard USB plug.
I have absolutely loved the convenience that this product offers. It seems I am always running out of juice, and since everyone in my household has multiple devices that constantly seem to need charging, available charging ports are few and far between.
This handy outlet was easy to install, and allows us 2 more places to plug in. This is ideal for my iPhone as well as my iPad, other tablets, and our handheld gaming systems.
Charging is quick, too, which is a total added bonus.
If you're looking for a great gift for the tech-lovers in your life, be sure to grab one! This would be a fantastic stocking stuffer!
Availability and Pricing :
The new Power2U outlet is available now from Other World Computing with a price of $24.99, and from other NewerTech distributors. Power2U is available in four colors - White, Black, Light Almond and Ivory.
