Why Upgrade to a USB Outlet: Changing the way you Charge.

Standard UCable

Almar is always on the lookout for new products that are going to enhance our clients comfort in their home. I recently read an article in one of the Remodeling
industry magazines about the new USB wall plug. These new outlets can be used
to replace your existing wall outlet with one that includes two extra USB charging ports.

It seems like today everyone has an item or two (or for some of us a whole lot more) that needs to be plugged in into a USB charging slot. Our laptops, ipads, cell phones and regular phone, everything wireless all have that little USB plug, and for us many of the outlets in the house are taken up with devises. These USB Outlets are great solution when you don’t have a lot of outlets. So Almar often
 recommends it as an upgraded option to homeowners when we are installing new outlets anyway.
According to FastMac’s website their U-Socket “is an AC receptacle with the added benefit of two built-in USB ports that can power any device that is charged via USB. Whether it’s an iPhone, gaming device, digital camera, Kindle or an iPad, U-Socket can handle it all. Designed to replace an existing 3-prong wall outlet, U-Socket eliminates the clutter of AC adapters that stick out and take up space.”
There are some special electrical requirements (such as 14 gauge or larger wiring) required to be able to install this product so you should call Almar Building &Remodeling so we can have our electrical team assess if your home is ready to simply make the switch or if we need to make some electrical upgrades to get you ready.
