Design And Build Professionals Get Charged Up At The Southeast Building Conference (SEBC), Courtesy Of Power2U Stations By Newer Technology

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013 | Author:

Newer Technology Inc. announced that it will feature its Power2U AC/USB wall outlet this week at SEBC 2013 in Orlando, Florida as the official “Recharging Zone” at the show. Newer Technology has deployed a number of convenient Power2U dual USB charging outlets in booth #741. As any trade show attendee knows well, finding a spot to get a quick charge for essential smartphones and tablets at an industry trade event is always a nightmare. Newer Technology is ensuring attendees at this year’s Southeast Building Conference can avoid huddling around power outlets off the show floor and have plenty of space for a recharge.

Power2U combines AC and USB power into a single, energy-efficient wall fixture. This must-have electrical accessory for anything from residential to commercial buildings delivers charge and power for up to four devices simultaneously via built-in USB ports and the National Electrical Code (NEC)-compliant and tamper-resistant AC receptacles, while eliminating unsightly clutter created by multiple cables and bulky power adapters. Power2U is designed for standard 15-Amp and commercial grade 20-Amp circuits. All units are available in white, light almond, ivory and black, and trade pricing is available, with special discounts on 10-pack, 20-pack, 100-pack, and volume orders. Article Continues…

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!

Yes Virginia, Being UL Listed Does Really Matter

Friday, December 16th, 2011 | Author:

While I edit many posts behind the scenes, I haven’t flexed my writing chops here in a while. The introduction of the Power2U™ AC/USB wall outlet yesterday provided the impetus for me to return in a very visible way. And the time of season certainly provides the theme for a post headline. ;-)

You see, I’ve been a part of the development of this product for the past two years so I’m feeling like a proud papa. Heck, I even christened it…it offers two different ways to power/charge & has two USB ports. Get it?

The reason it took this ship take so long to sail is we realized beyond all the product’s functionality, convenience, and downright coolness, there was one key element that could not be comprised: your safety. Article Continues…
