Logical, intuitive, way more convenient than plugging one plug into another plug before it hits the wall. I wonder how long before all newly-installed outlets will contain USB ports in addition to the standard AC 3-prongs like this issue from Leviton.
The USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Duplex Receptacle adds a pair of 3.6A capacity USB ports to the midsection of its otherwise typical installation. Ports are powered by smart chips that recognize the requirements of an inserted device to optimize charging accordingly. And obviously the inclusion of these contemporary tech-specific units leaves the other 2 outlets free for your lamps and coffee makers.
Some further features of Leviton's USB charger-outlet combo:
- Unit is back and side wired for easy installation.
- Compatible with Decora and Decora Plus screwless wall plates.
- Can be multi-ganged with other devices.
- Compact design fits in a standard wallbox.
