By now, most everyone you know probably owns a smart device that uses a USB cable to charge. A simple online search will show you endless tips and tricks to follow to get the fastest charge possible – but did you know there’s a new type of device on the market that makes charging faster and more convenient?
You’ve probably seen in-wall USB charger outlets at your local big box store. They’re becoming increasingly popular for their convenient design: you can use both outlets and still charge your devices at the same time by plugging your cable directly into the A or C ports – no adapter required. The advantage? Plugging directly into the port gives your devices a faster charge, thanks to smart chip technology built into the outlet’s electronics. Once you plug in, the USB port recognizes what type of device you’re charging and feeds it just the right amount of power it needs.
So how do you choose the right outlet for you? The possibilities can seem endless - make sure you get what you pay for. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind:
USB Charger Outlets are a terrific addition to any home or business and a must have for today’s connected lifestyle. Keep in mind, buying cheaper isn’t always better if the outlet can’t meet the requirements listed above. Install one today so you can spend less time charging and more time enjoying your electronics.
