When you consider that a family of four could have between them four smart phones and an assortment each of tablets, cameras, media payers, and other GS devices, then it’s not surprising that it’s a bit of a struggle when everyone wants access to a UBS charging point at the same time. Using a laptop or computer to charge USB devices, isn’t always convenient, especially if it means leaving your tablet or phone in a different room as it charges, and risking missing an important phone call or text message.
So, what’s the solution?
Many manufacturers are now supplying power points which also incorporate USB charging points.
These handy power points utilise the standard 240 watt power sockets in conjunction with USB charging outlets. This means that you can plug your USB device straight into a wall socket to charge it up without the need of a cumbersome transformer. Because these power points include standard sockets, they can be installed in any room of the house, enabling you to use household appliances and charge your USB devices at the same time.
Available in a variety of configurations
Powerpoints such as these with USB charging points are compatible with iPhones and iPads, most smartphones and tablets, cameras, GPS units, media players, and plenty more devices. One of the most popular configurations is a double standard socket with a double USB socket which is particularly handy in rooms such as the kitchen, where you always need more power sockets than anywhere else in the home. The staff at Static Electrics can help you choose the power points to match your needs and to fit your particular devices and appliances.
Manufacturers recommend that a qualified electrician installs a power point with a USB socket, although they’re relatively easy to fit. They’re the same size as standard power points, so it’s easy to swap one out for the other without creating too much mess.
