Wall mounted USB power sockets are going to hit the market. Everytime I want to charge my iPod, I look around for a computer USB power source or USB charger. As more gadgets draw power charge from USB ports, a wall mounted USB power outlet is an ideal solution.
Behold the U-Socket, a wall mounter power socket, which includes two USB charge ports with two standard three prong power outlet ports (Input voltage: AC 100 to 240V 50/60Hz; USB input current: 80mA; Output voltage: USB: DC 5.0V 600mA).
USB power sockets are perfect for charging any USB powered device like your mobile, iPod, iPhone, PDA, MP3, PSP, MP4 player or digital camera. U-Socket is currently waiting on final UL Approval and is scheduled to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2010. Fastmac is accepting U-Socket preorders for $19.95 only.
Don’t be surprised if you find the USB slot combined with all standard electrical fittings soon. Its going to be on every wall!
