An outlet that simplifies charging your gadgets. Power2U.

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, May 8, 2012

An outlet that simplifies charging your gadgets.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp,  a report on gadgets and gear.      Newer Technology has added some new colors to a gadget that just about every household has a need for these days.   The Power2U replacement power outlet lets you charge two USB devices at the same time you use the two standard power outlets.    It’s now available in black, ivory and light almond.   President Larry O’Connor…

“Any device that will charge via USB will charge via our wall socket.  It’s got a shutter design so when you plug in your USB cable that actually turns the charger on.  And you have smart power, so it only provides what power your device will take, 500 milliamps to 2 amps.  When your device is done charging, it powers down.  When you unplug it, there’s not even any vampire draw, very energy efficient and I like to say, spouse approved.  It eliminates little wall warts and eliminates a fight over which outlet you’re going to use for what.”

You can find Power2U at OtherWorldComputing.com for under 30 dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
