Inexpensive Power Outlet Supports SuperSpeed USB 3.0

Paul Lilly

You can't claim you're living in a high tech abode if your power outlets don't boast USB ports. And even if they do, will they support SuperSpeed USB 3.0 devices? TruePower's U-Sockets do.

Fastmac.com is currently taking preorders for the redesigned, two-port socket for $20/pop, down from the regular price of $30. Each one includes a pair of standard three prong power outlet ports, plus two USB ports nudged over to the side that are capable of "charging any USB (1.0 to 3.0) powered device including mobile, iPod, iPhone, PDA, MP3, PSP, MP4 players, and digital cameras."

Curiously missing is any specific mention of Apple's power hungry iPad, so if that's important to you, you'll want to look into it before depleting your Paypal balance outfitting your home with new power sockets.

The U-Sockets are slated to ship 4-5 weeks from the date of order.
