Don't know how many of you out there have ditched the alarm clock like we have and now depend on your iPhone/Touch, Android mobile, or iPad now as your bedside morning alarm. But we'd definitely like to install dual U-Socket so we can keep our device(s) amply powered up so we don't miss our morning wake up.

The U-Socket is pending approval, but pre-orders are being accepted for $19.95 over at FastMac. Note this wall socket was designed not to be an energy vampire, so power is only transferred when USB device is plugged in, making it a energy-friendly upgrade!


  • Input voltage: AC 100 to 240V 50/60Hz
  • USB input current: 80mA
  • Output voltage: USB: DC 5.0V 600mA
  • Operation temperature: -15 to 45 Degrees Celsius
  • Relative humidity: < 95%
  • Air pressure: 86 to 106kP
