Current Werks, an innovator in energy efficient charging, today announced that it will exhibit its Duo and Quattro USB wall outlets in Booth #3237 at the National Hardware Show 2012, at the Convention Center. The outlets allow direct plug-in to the wall to charge electronic products with USB ports, delivering the fastest possible charge for computer tablets, e-readers, smart phones and other USB-port equipped consumer electronics products.  

Both Current Werks USB wall outlets are designed to meet consumer needs for charging convenience, be quickly and easily installed, and comply with all building safety requirements.  Benefits of the Current Werks outlets include the following.

  • Convenience: The Duo provides concurrent access to two USB ports and two tamper resistant (UL 498) 15 Amp electric receptacles, and is the only combined USB and standard receptacle outlet that can simultaneously charge an iPad® and iPhone® at the full rate. The Quattro has four USB ports and easily handles multiple devices at full charging rates.
  • Easy Installation: Both outlets are pre-wired for use in 16 cubic inch or larger, single-gang 120V electrical boxes and come with installation screws and faceplate.  The Duo is available with both 15 amp and 20 amp commercial grade receptacles.    
  • Safety: Both outlets are compliant with UL & CSA standards and the 2011 National Electrical Code (tested by Met Labs under listing number E113374). The outlets also have built-in one-time circuit fault protection.  
  • Energy Efficiency: Ideal for new green construction and remodeling, the outlets help reduce and even eliminate power loss while not charging.  The USB-ports of Duo draw less than 100mW with no devices attached.  The Quattro uses a patent pending sliding door that closes when no devices are plugged-in to completely eliminate stand-by power draw.

Both outlets are available now at a suggested retail price of $29.98 (Duo) and $39.98 (Quattro).
