Space Saver: USB Wall Socket

Space Saver: USB Wall Socket

I love finding products that are clever, well-designed and celebrate the realistic presence that technology has in our homes. This wall socket is the same size as a regular outlet, but includes two USB ports - a great solution for small space living or older homes where the number of outlets are often limited.

Created by Fastmac, the U-Socket includes two Universal Serial Bus (USB) charge ports (1.0 - 3.0) in addition to two standard three-prong power outlet ports. Instead of the plug-in converter that most of us are familiar with, these special outlets put the transformer (which coverts the 110 volts of outlet power to 5 volts of USB power) right into the outlet, meaning you get two USB ports without sacrificing any electrical outlets! Best of all, the U-Socket can be installed on any existing power outlet, making it a viable solution for rentals and existing homes.
