Given the number of electronic devices and chargers plugged into an average home’s sockets, specialty plug adapters can be a great way to save energy and avoid “energy vampires” that draw power even when they aren’t in use. But what if you could simply plug devices (even USBs) into a “regular” wall outlet and still save energy? Now, you can.
Designed as a replacement for a traditional 3-prong AC wall outlet, the U-Socket automatically senses the required wattage to charge a device. USB outlets are integrated into the unit, and it only provides full power when it senses something is plugged in (further reducing energy waste). The outlet is NEC (National Electrical Code) listed, IEC (International Electrical Commission) listed, and UL-listed.
