Tech Corner – Electrical Outlets with Built-In USB

Electrical Outlet with Built In USB PortsI was out staffing a model home yesterday. As I sat in the kitchen eating lunch, I noticed the builder had installed a special outlet that contained a pair of USB charging ports. I thought this was a nice way to avoid the little “wall wart” transformers that come with many of the newer devices.

Being a “techie” of sorts I wanted them for my own kitchen so I was off on the hunt. I stopped into the local Lowe’s store and scored three of them for about $23 each.

It took me about 30 minutes to install them in my kitchen and I was ready to go. While this is a simple task, you may want to consider hiring a handyman to install them properly and safely.
