Great Last Minute NewerTech Stocking Stuffers

Friday, December 20th, 2013 | Author:

GlobemanShoppingOK, Christmas is in less than a week, and you still have stockings to stuff. Not to worry. Not only does NewerTech have tons of options that can solve your problem, we also offer free shipping on most any order of $49 and up.

There are three main characteristics that make a perfect stocking stuffer. First of all, size is a factor because it obviously needs to fit in a stocking. Price is a consideration, because most of us have many stockings to stuff … Christmas is meant to spread cheer, not flirtations with bankruptcy. And finally, you want something that will actually be used. It’s easy to run through a discount retailer and grab hundreds of the knick-knacks they have marked down for the holidays. But lets be honest, most of those end up gathering dust, thrown away or re-gifted.

NewerTech has many products that meet all three of these requirements, but the following four would be especially great components of the perfect Christmas stocking. Article Continues…

Win The Power Outlet Of Your Dreams

Friday, August 16th, 2013 | Author:

PR_Power2U_WallWhat could be better than our Power2U? An easy to install power outlet that charges up to four devices at once, is National Electric Code (NEC) compliant, tamper-resistant, and energy efficient?! If you exclude such fantasies as drinking straight out of a chocolate fountain or rolling in a pile of $100 bills, there really isn’t anything better. Or wait…is there? What about a free Power2U? Consider my mind blown.

Now you have the chance to win a free Power 2U! The Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Blog is giving away three 15Amp Power2U’s in white. Visit the contest page for full details on how to enter the contest. Winners will be announced next Friday, August 23rd at 9am EST on the PTPA Facebook page. You can enter up until Thursday, August 22nd at 11:59. If you are the lucky winner, you will receive an email as well as be notified via the PTPA blog and Facebook page. Start practicing your celebration dance now in case you win.

OWC was very excited to learn that we had won the PTPA Seal of Approval back in July. The Power2U was among many entries from across North America that competed to earn the PTPA seal. As with all PTPA products, it was tested by independent parent volunteers in their own homes, and as such was rated based on merit and consumer experience.

If you don’t win the contest, pick yourself up and stop crying. Remind yourself that Power2U’s are available from OWC for purchase whenever you want. And you can still do your celebration dance when it comes in the mail.

End Power Struggles In Your Home

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 | Author:

Most households suffer from power struggles… No, not just those kinds of power struggles, but the kind that comes when a family has too many electronic devices, and not enough adapters or unused power outlets. Using my own family as an example, when the batteries run low, it can become a game of “Where’s Waldo?” – first to find the charger the kids recently used (and now can’t remember where it is) wins!

Fortunately, OWC has a solution that can bring your family harmony. The Newer Technology Power2U is the first UL listed AC/USB in-wall outlet designed to charge/power up to four devices at once with two traditional three-prong AC wall sockets and two USB ports giving you one location to charge your AC and USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 devices!

The Power2U features an energy-efficient “Smart Power” design with spring-loaded safety shutters that reduce energy costs by providing only the charging amount needed and eliminating “vampire” draw. The Power2U is also “kid friendly” with NEC tamper resistant receptacles for peace-of-mind protection!

Available in four colors, Power2U comes in 15 Amp and 20 Amp models for residential, commercial, hospitality, education, and municipal applications. Both models just require a 16 cubic inch or larger electrical box with the proper circuit. And to help make this a basic “DIY” installation into a standard wall outlet box, a step-by-step manual is included and an installation video is available at http://www.newertech.com/p2u-install. The Power 2U is sure to end your family’s power struggles and make your home “today ready” for your digital lifestyle!
