Universal USB Wall Charging Outlet – turn your home into a power friendly geek space


It’s actually about time the humble wall power socket got a makeover. The things have been with us since the time dinosaurs roamed the earth, and the biggest development in that time has been the dual socket. Wow. Well times have changed Mr Edison, and we all now need more than just a couple of prongs and a smile.

The Universal USB Wall Charging Outlet replaces a standard wall socket and adds in not only two USB sockets for instant device charging, but also a universal socket which can accept all those strange foreign plugs without having to use adapters. Clever.


Now whether you’re actually going to need to do your shaving in the living room or not, this is definitely an idea that needs to become more widely accepted. Nowadays we’re buying our equipment from all over the world, courtesy of eBay and our Chinese brethren, so it definitely makes sense to kit out the house to cope with all kinds of charging plugs.

Just be careful with the voltages though, OK? Otherwise toast might not be the only thing you smell burning in the morning. Priced at $20.00 (and we would definitely expect this price to come down as the production starts to ramp up in the future).


  • I’d have slapped 4 USB ports in there. It sure does make good sense, though!

  • How is this better than having a few neatly coiled chargers placed around the house? Then, you can charge anywhere you want ANNNND use all of your plugs for – you know, plugging things in.
    You can get 3 chargers for the same $20 and triple your utility.

    • Cats? Dogs? Wife? Kids? Neater solution? :)
