First and Only Patented, UL Listed Dual-Socket Wall Outlet with Two Integrated USB Ports Ideal for Home-Safe Simultaneous Powering and/or Charging Two USB and Two AC Plug- In Devices

January 8, 2012, Las Vegas, NV — Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech®) announced today that it will be showcasing Power2U™ at the Other World Computing (OWC) booth #5231 in the LVCC North Hall during the Consumer Electronics Show which begins Tuesday. Designed to enhance living and working spaces by eliminating the need for unsightly, bulky power adapters, Power2U is the industry’s first and only patented, home-safe, UL Listed dual AC socket/dual USB port in-wall charging solution. Visitors to the OWC booth will be able to experience the convenience of the Power2U firsthand by charging up one of their USB or AC powered devices.

Complements Any Decor
A leading developer of Macintosh®, PC, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad® performance upgrades and accessories, Newer Technology designed the Power2U to seamlessly blend into any residential wall as a standard power outlet. Incorporating two traditional three-prong AC wall sockets in addition to two USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 ports, the Power2U is a basic ‘DIY’ install on any 15Amp circuit with a 16-cubic-inch electrical box.

Money Saving, Energy Efficient
The new outlet provides a clean looking, modern, centralized location for charging/powering USB devices. In addition to being convenient to use, the Power2U provides two energy efficiency features people will appreciate. The intelligent Smart Power design only outputs enough charging power to meet the requirements of the device that is attached. The specially designed spring-loaded Safety Shutters completely turn off power to the USB ports when a connecting cable is removed.
