CES 2012: USB wall power



Newer Technology will be showcasing the Power2U AC socket/dual USB in the wall charging solution at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Designed to enhance living and working spaces by eliminating the need for unsightly, bulky power adapters, Power2U is the industry’s first patented, home-safe, UL Listed dual AC socket/dual USB port in-wall charging solution. Visitors to the Consumer Electronics Show will be able to experience the convenience of the Power2U firsthand by charging up one of their USB or AC powered devices.

Complements any decor

A leading developer of Macintosh, PC, iPod, iPhone, and iPad performance upgrades and accessories, Newer Technology designed the Power2U to seamlessly blend into any residential wall as a standard power outlet. Incorporating two traditional three-prong AC wall sockets in addition to two USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 ports, the Power2U is a basic ‚DIY’ install on any 15Amp circuit with a 16-cubic-inch electrical box.

Money saving, energy efficient

The new outlet provides a clean looking, modern, centralized location for charging/powering USB devices. In addition to being convenient to use, the Power2U provides two energy efficiency features people will appreciate.
