If you are like our family you are building up a stockpile of electronic devices that you need to charge. You soon run out of AC wall plug sockets to plug in the charging cords. This is a nice way to turn two AC wall sockets into 6 sockets along with two USB charging ports. The unit plugs into the wall socket and it will cover both plugs. There is a plastic pin that actually will plug into the ground plug of the other socket to provide some stabilization. The unit also comes with a long screw that allows you to remove the existing screw from the wall plate and put this new one through the unit and screw it to the wall plug for increased stabilization of the 6 plug unit.
The nice thing about this is that the unit can handle 15 amps at 120 volts so it will safely allow 1800 watts of energy to go through it. It is UL approved and it is thermally protected from overheating. The unit protects your devices from voltage spikes. It...
I researched many usb port / wall plugin solution. From the replacement of the electric socket itself to these add-on adapters. The big benefit to this particular adapter is the tablet amperage port. The other plugs / adapters I saw produced 2.1 amp usb output, and for a tablet that is forever to charge. This one has 3.4 amp (combined so I only use 1) usb output, thus charges tablets faster. I don't think it charges as fast as some of the tablet-only usb adapters out there, but for a wall solution this one has the highest output I could find.
Not shown in the picture is a led that runs across the top (green). Some people will hate it, but we now have these around the house and they work as nightlights, as well as good usb ports.
As the huge nerd I am, my living room has some sort of similar on-wall surge protector/AC splitter on almost every outlet. Most of them are a popular competing brand which is a 6-way outlet, which is great. But this one is unique in its ability to swivel the outlets to make connecting various size cables and such much easier.
The USB outlets are rated at a whopping 3.4 amps (combined), which is far more than the 2.1 amps my other ones have. This is ample (pun intended) power to charge two USB devices at the same time. A couple of my earlier ones were only rated at 1-point-something amps and takes *forever* to charge a single phone. This one charges my phone very quickly.
The swivelling outlets are awesome for tight spaces like behind a couch, where you don't have room for a bunch of junk to stick straight out from the wall. It also is awesome because most of my 6-way wall outlets can only fit four plugs anyway due to them all being condensed in a small area and...
