The U-Socket

Coming to an electrical or home improvement store near you in October is the U-Socket, a redesign of the traditional electrical outlet that includes two ports designed to charge USB 3.0 and lower devices.  The U-Socket is expected to cost around $20 and should peak the interest of techno-geeks everywhere who are constantly searching for USB ports to charge their devices.  The electrical output of each port is expected to discharge 10 Watts, which means you can charge your iPad at the same speed as a traditional USB port connected to a computer.


  1. Interesting. I wonder how it gets wired?

  2. I was wondering the same thing myself, but haven't been able to find a wiring diagram online. I plan on redoing a couple of my outlets when this comes out.
