I like Newer Tech's products and the savings from Amazon and OWC for this product (versus Newertech) is significant. If it fits and if the USB ports work, then this is an elegant solution. I don't doubt that other manufacturers will soon be making these. Factories in Shanghai will, no doubt, move quickly to clone these and provide them for 1/3 the price.
Belkin Belkin Mini Surge Protector Dual USB Charger makes a nice mini surge protector with multiple ports and two USB ports that I like and it takes about 2 seconds to plug into the outlet - not as clean, but foolproof and allows multiple angles.
In other words, just beware that there are some significant liimitations for installation and not all are spelled out on Amazon's web site.
* Do NOT install the Newer Technology Power2U wall outlet into an electrical box that is smaller than 16 cubic inches. If your electrical box contains more than 4 wires (not including ground wires), verify that it's capacity is large enough to accomodate this device before proceeding. Do not overfill the electrical box!
Minimum box dimensions from the user manual: 54.5mm wide x 62.3mm deep x 90.5mm tall.
The 2nd problem: Because the outlet is so large, there is no way to connect your solid 18 gauge wire to this thing. They only provide screw terminals on the sides towards the front, no slide-in connectors on the back - so its a real wiring nightmare. This meant having to connect short pieces of stranded wire to the terminals, then using wire nuts to connect to the solid wire. But this means you now need to fit wire nuts into the box where there is barely room for the outlet.
The 3rd problem: The trim plate that they provide is flat - its has no curved edge to accomodate the the outlet that does not fit completely flush to the wall or cabinet. This means you can't use the blue outlet boxes which insert from outside the wall becuse they do not sit flush. I had to use a dremel to get my existing outlet box so sit slightly back from the surface.Read more ›
The big problem comes in that unless the faceplate is EXACTLY perfectly aligned, flush but not actually touching the wall, the USB doors will not fully close the switch and then your USB ports will have no power. I spent nearly 30 minutes removing the faceplate, adjusting the screws for the unit, then reattaching the faceplate and testing. After 6-8 iterations of this, neither USB port would reliably power-up when inserting my Apple OEM iPhone charging cable.
I eventually gave up trying to make it work, and was about to return it when I realized that I could easily pry off the sliding door assembly. Then with some electrical tape, I wedged the switches "on", reattached the faceplate, and voila! it all works just fine. Not as pretty without the sliding doors... but it works. I have no idea why they couldn't put the switch inside the USB port itself such that plugging in something activates the power... the switch mechanism is very flimsy looking and I'm thinking it was probably only a matter of time before I had to do an electrical tape "fix" on it anyway.
I also have to echo the other reviewers' concerns about the size of the electrical box and the bulkiness of the unit. I had to rewire the box a bit to reduce the amount of loose wire inside in order to make room for everything. It did fit, but it complicated the effort to try and get the unit and faceplace properly mounted so as to make the terrible little USB power switches work properly.
