How To: Upgrade a Wall Outlet to USB Functionality

I had no idea!! - Upgrade a Wall Outlet to USB Functionality - You can get one at Lowe's or Home Depot for $15 - consider it done!!

USB Wall Socket. Replaces existing wall outlets with one that adds two USB charging ports Supplies up to 2.1 Amps through each USB Port. Made for US 110v only. $30

Similar for USA: AC Wall Outlet with 2 Built-in USB Ports by Current Werks http://currentwerks.com/products-page/usb-wall-outlets/usb-outlet-duo/%20AC%20Wall%20Outlet%20with%202%20Built-in%20USB%20Ports

upgrade your electrical outlet with USB ports --- great idea for the bedroom!

USB Wall Socket - don't take up a plug just to charge your phone. Great idea!

upgrade your electrical outlet with USB ports. What a great idea.

USB Wall Sockets - must have in new house dream-home-ideas

USB wall socket - What a great idea.

Find an outlet you want to replace. Don't do this for GFCI outlets with a button, as these USB outlets do not have GFCI functionality built-in. Cut off power to the room(s) you're replacing the sockets in via the main circuit breaker panel. Unscrew the existing wall plate and remove. Unscrew the electrical outlet from the junction box. Take note of how your socket is connected. Try snapping pics with your phone and drawing a diagram. 2012_02_01-USB_Wall_Outlet_02.jpg Remove the power wires from the existing electrical outlet Our Fastmac USB outlet just has one neutral wire terminal. So if you had a middle-of-run wired outlet (pictured to the right in image above), you're going to have to combine the two wires into one. The kit supplies a knot and extra wire for this 2012_02_01-USB_Wall_Outlet_04.jpg Attach the wires to the new USB electrical outlet. Don't forget the ground. 2012_02_01-USB_Wall_Outlet_03.jpg Push back in the wires and screw the new USB outlet into the junction box. Likely a very tight and snug fit. Turn back on the power and look for the polarity mismatch indicator. If it's glowing something is wrong with the wiring. Go back and try to fix. If the indicator is not glowing then you should be set. Turn back off the power and screw in the wall plate cover. Clean up and turn back on power when done. 2012_02_02-USB_Wall_Outlet_ (2).jpg Voila! It's a cool trick if you get it working right. We tricked out our guest room, master bedroom (by the nightstands where sleeping gadgets lie), and an outlet by our living room couch for guests. All outlets shown here also pack enough current to charge the iPad as well. So if you're power charging options at home are feeling sparse, grab one of these and more power to ya! 2012_02_01-USB_Wall_Outlet_05.jpg
