Newer Technology Earns Coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013 | Author:

Newer Technology Inc.  announced that its Power2U AC/USB wall outlet has been awarded the PTPA Winner’s Seal of Approval. PTPA Media has North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 60,000 parents, and was rated the Most Trusted Seal by 22,000 parents. Consumers looking for high-quality products and services can rest assured when they see the PTPA Winner’s Seal; it’s evidence of a product’s excellence through evaluation by unbiased parent testers.

Power2U combines AC and USB power into a single, energy-efficient wall fixture that can power up to four devices simultaneously via built-in USB ports and National Electrical Code (NEC)-compliant and tamper-resistant AC receptacles. Power2U provides direct USB port charging for all USB devices and packs enough punch to charge the latest iPad via USB. A slim profile provides an aesthetically clean look that hides the USB ports when in use. Smart shutters open and power up immediately when the USB is engaged, and close to power down upon removal—eliminating “vampire power draw.” The Power2U smart circuitry delivers only the power necessary to charge iPhones, iPads, and any other USB device.

Monday, May 6th, 2013 | Author:

If you’re a reader of the OWC Blog, then you probably already know about the Power2U – the first UL listed AC/USB wall outlet on the market that charges four devices simultaneously. And since its inception in December 2011, the Power2U has seen its share of imitators.

In fact, we did some competitive analysis at OWC headquarters to see how the Power2U stacks up to three competitors and the included Apple factory adapters when charging an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4. Article Continues…
