I own this product and have for almost nine months. It works as stated. The reason I'm writing this review is to counter the one star rating whose writer questions the lack of "UL rating." First, I question the motives of someone who rates an item without owning it. Second, I question the writer's intent when calling the TUV little known. Perhaps it is little known in the US, but it is the UL equivalent organization in Germany. And, after having lived in Germany, can tell you that TUV, if anything, is considerably more strict than our UL. I knew of TUV, but I also just Googled it, to refresh my memory. Obviously the one star rater didn't bother to check Google. At any rate, the only quibbles I have with this product is that the faceplate cover is more flexible that our standard plastic outlet covers and doesn't fit quite as well since it is only held on with the standard center faceplate screw. I also think it is a bit overpriced but until more manufacturers are producing them, that won't change. Minor complaints, this product works as advertised.

I bought this product so that I could have more outlets for charging near my bed. I've got an Asus Transformer, my Blackberry, and my clock (for a total of 3 clocks). My goal was to have both USB devices charge using the USB ports so that I'd have one outlet free. However, the power output from the USB ports is insufficient for my Asus Transformer. It charges the Blackberry and my wife's Android phone just fine, but it doesn't fully conform to the current Battery Charger specs for USB 2 or 3 which allow for higher voltages/currents.

Otherwise, it works very well. Installation was simple (although the clearance in the box was almost nil), and it looks just fine.

UPDATE: I got an iPad Mini. This charges it perfectly.

BEFORE YOU ORDER take out the plug you currently have and see how big your box is. If there is not room for an extra inch of depth and a half inch of width in your box this product will not fit in that box and probably no where in your house. Sad, I know. You could make it work, but that is a larger job that I want to take on at the moment. This product is a standard outlet with a rear attachment measuring about an inch in depth. It also extends to the left about a half inch. I am sadly returning it, perhaps I will reorder when I have time to tackle the project or ripping out the old small box.

Nice: iPad3 charging with 2.1 amps works perfectly. One star off, for installation difficulty. It was hard to make all (ground, hot, neutral) wires to fit inside a small junction box. Typically have to work with 3 solid copper wires of 14 AWG or 12 AWG size. Daisy chaining receptacles doubles the number of wires -- ouch! Suggested product improvement: include a short piece (say 3 inch long) 16 AWG multistranded (green) wire for grounding + wire nut (twist-on wire connector) ... would make it easier to cram all the wires inside the box.

This product was easy to install. Turn off the power at the circuit breaker, uninstall the old receptacle, install the new receptacle, turn on the power, go!!!! It's really nice now that I don't have to use up the two receptacles to charge our mobile devices, i.e., iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Samsung phone, etc.

Cons: Pricey, but it's a new product.

This was my first foray in to home wiring. The job took a few tools, some sweating and grunting, and some improvisation.
Outlets have a hot (+), common (-), and ground. Most outlet boxes will have two hot wires and two common wires, to continue to the next box. On the outlet itself, there is a screw for each of these 5 wires. On the USB outlet, there is only one common screw. They recommend splicing the two commons in the box together with a 3rd wire to run to the outlet screw. There wasn't enough room in the box for all this, so I just clamped both commons on the one screw. This required removing the screw and bending the wires to the exact shape of the screw with needlenose pliers. Home wires are a very thick gauge solid copper wire, so this took some skill and patience. And since my room lighting was on the same breaker, I was doing it all in the dark. I finally got everything connected and bent the wires to properly fit in the box, and was barely able to squeeze it all in. The whole job took about 45 minutes, but it has been working flawlessly for several months. I love the clean look of no wall-warts, and the fact that the USB cords do not drain power when unplugged.

The outlet works well, and seems to be built well enough. The only reason I am giving it lower starts is because I have a Leviton outlet (1 plug, 2 USB), which has a 2.1 amp USB outlet which my tablet charges off of perfectly. The tablet doesn't get as much power from this outlet, and charges slower. In fact it loses power if the screen is on. The tablet is a 1st gen Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Furthermore, the size was extremely close to not fitting whereas the Leviton outlet went into an identically sized outlet with ease.

Finally, the Leviton outlet seems to be of a higher build quality. This FastMac charger also does not allow for rear entry connections, only side, the face plate is flimsy.

OH last thing. The one I got is NOT the one in the picture. The USB outlets are both on top, on either side of the top outlet, and they are black. The picture shows them on the same side, and they are blue.

I guess I am going to stick with a brand that I know, Lutron/Leviton from here on in.
