Review 1 for Newer Technology Power2U AC Wall Outlet with 2 x USB Charging Ports, 2 x AC 110/120V - White Color.
PostedMay 24, 2013
Installation takes about 20 mins per outlet (including removing the old outlet). Without the power brick, these USB ports power a full sized iPad, which is awesome! The outlet is a bit of a tight squeeze in the junction box, but it worked for me. The little USB door covers are spring loaded and it always seems like I have the cable oriented backwards, but they are very handy charging stations and clean up the clutter on the wall.
Pros: Quality, Durability
I would recommend this to a friend!

plugged-in USB cable always "on"

The port doors are difficult to open and turn on the power so leaving a cable in is about the same as leaving a power brick plugged in to an outlet.

Installed one of the 4 I ordered.

The house I orders these for has very odd boxes in the walls so the only one I got installed was in a newly remodeled section of the house. However it is working great and the family is loving that one.
On note for people with older homes (Pre 1985), check your outlet box dept and style before ordering. We are just going to cut the drywall and install new boxes that are up to code to put these in, but that is not everyone's idea of a good afternoon.

This product works Great!!

My problem was with installation. I was installing this in a kitchen island made of wood and not sheetrock. The house is 12 years old and the electrical box was plastic, regular 16" size. The box had clips, ridges and grooves inside that would not allow the unit to set flush. I needed a new box. All boxes at the home improvement stores had the same design. I had to go to an electrical distributor to find one that had no obstructions, and ended up with an 18 inch. I needed to cut the hole a little larger in the wood for this box to fit. Now the wiring of it was no problem. Success! No! My laptop has a white transformer which was just a little to large to be plug in beside the USB. Determined to make it work! Fortunately, my laptop had an extension that was a normal plug. All is good. Just be prepared for some alterations.

Newer Technology Power2U AC Wall Outlet with USB Charging Ports was easy to install. Looks real nice and charges my iPad, iPhone, and iPod. I recommend OWC and will order from them in the future. I got my package two day early!

Awesome Idea but falls short on utility
PostedJanuary 28, 2012
I loved the idea of installing a few of these in the house and it is indeed a very easy install so I bought 3. The problem is the usb connector tends to easily come out when staying plugged in. At first I thought it was due to the shutter that puts pressure on the usb connection but even after removing the spring so that it would stay opened I had the same problem. I find that every time I want to charge my iphone I have to re-insert the usb connector. It just doesn't grab on like a computer port does. It's still worth having just a little disappointing since the convenience goes out the door. Especially if you have one behind your couch it makes it very tough to always reinsert the plug.

Every Home Needs This!

The Power2U is classy convenience in charging any USB device. It gives any wall a "whoa, what is that?" admiring stare from both geeks and visitors alike. It's like the finishing touch on a wall...esp in a reading room, kitchen...anywhere it's visible where you see it and it just makes sense to have such an outlet.
So...how does it work? Well, the outlets are the smoothest I've ever had in a home...it's like they're greased or something. And I didn't even buy it for that. The USB ports are sweet and no issues...work like a USB port should. You just use the connector end to push the sliding "shutter" out of the way and connect with a simple push. A three year old could use this!
Once I opened my outlet box, after shutting off the circuit breaker of course, I was able to wire this up and get it into the box with a tight fit. I didn't bother measuring the outlet box to what the instructions say should be 16 cubic inches. All I know is that I make things work to my needs and this now is our "Grand Central Charging Station" for my family's computers and mobile toys.
