Win a Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 | Author:

Everybody loves the Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet.

Ever since it was introduced last year, the Power2U has won a number of awards and seals of approval. From home-improvement sites to tech blogs and everywhere in between, this clever marriage of a standard two-outlet wall socket and a 2-port USB charger into one UL-listed package is revered as being unbelievably useful and easy-to-install – something you’re sure to want in your own homes.

This just may be your lucky day, as MommyBlogExpert is holding a giveaway contest for a Power2U of your very own.

There are a number of ways to enter, but before you do, you need to leave a message on the main contest page. Once you’ve done that, you can earn yourself extra entries by liking, following or subscribing to a number of different MommyBlogExpert and/or Newer Technology social portals. See the contest page for full details.

Even if you don’t win, you can still get a Power2U from OWC. At prices starting at $12 after OWC instant rebate (compared to the regular price of $24.99), you can get one for all your rooms that could use a reduction in cable clutter.

But it wouldn’t hurt to try for a free one, either.

It’s pretty safe to say that, since its introduction, Newer Technology’s Power2U USB/AC Wall Outlet has been insanely popular. Tens of thousands of Power2Us have been sold, and only a very small percentage of people have had questions during the installation process.

Fortunately, though, most of the questions boil down to a few cases which can be easily remedied. While the FAQ tab on the appropriate product page(s) should suffice, these topics are actually easier to understand when presented visually. After all, they say “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

Well, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth 30,000 words per second, and that’s just what we’ve done. We hope by illustrating answers to common questions that you’ll be able understand the solutions more easily.

You can find the video in our Tech Center if you want, but we’ve also embedded it after the break… Article Continues…

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…
