Amplify Your Office with USB Wall Outlets

usbwalloutletStarting in early 2010, lawyers using smartphones and other USB-enabled devices can plug their devices directly into a wall outlet.

The TruePower outlet, which has two “normal” outlets and two USB ports, will begin shipping early next year. The USB ports only draw power when a device is actually connected—a nice feature for anyone trying to save cash on their electric bills. The company is planning on posting an installation video in the near future if you are worried about the logistics involved.

Having eight devices lined up on your desk can be a real annoyance. Especially if you are short on USB ports, and need to unplug your printer everytime you want to charge your smartphone or iPod.

Install a TruePower outlet, and reduce the clutter on your desk.

    While this is a cool concept, I would not want to plug any electronic device into something that doesn’t have surge protection. From what I can tell, there’s not a surge protector in this outlet.

    Unless your existing home outlets have surge protection, or you use a surge protector power strip, I don’t think that should be much of a concern. There’s a much better chance you will break your smartphone from dropping it.
