Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB Outlet Receives Handyman Club Member Tested And Recommended Seal of Approval

Newer Technology, Inc. announced today its Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet received the highly coveted Handyman Club of America Seal of Approval by earning a 92% approval rating after being installed and used by over 150 Handyman Club members.

“A 92% member approval rating for the Power2U outlet is an excellent test result, and Newer Technology should be very proud their innovative product scored so well,” said Ross Tanner, Product Test Editor, HANDY magazine.

“We couldn’t be more pleased that the Power2U was overwhelmingly approved and endorsed by Handyman Club of America members,” said Grant Dahlke, Brand Manager, Newer Technology, Inc. “These testers are very hands-on and demand excellence of the products they choose for their home improvement projects. As such, the typical homeowner can buy the Power2U with full assurance they can install it and enjoy it hassle-free.

Praised by Handyman Club Members

Complementing independent media review acclaim and awards, the test review of Power2U by more than 150 Handyman Club members resulted in high praise:

  • “As a Master Electrician, I recommend it to anyone because it installs just like any other outlet. All my friends and family members want me to install these in their homes.” — Chris D., Keene, NH
  • “This product has the Cool Factor nailed down: super easy to install; can easily charge four devices at a time; convenience; value; Nerd Envy.” — Jonathan M., Bella Vista, AR
  • “As a product design technician, I appreciate the amount of thought that went into designing this product. It’s durable; instructions were easy to understand; and my family no longer needs to fight over the computer to charge their devices.” — Dwayne B., Glencoe, MN

Turns Walls Into Charging Stations

Ideal for homes with users of multiple USB chargeable devices, the Power2U is available in four decorator colors to blend seamlessly into any residential wall as a standard power outlet. By incorporating two traditional three-prong AC wall sockets in addition to two USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 ports, the Power2U transforms an ordinary wall into a modern, centralized location for charging/powering up to four devices simultaneously.

Easy 20 Minute or Faster Install

The Power2U is a basic ‘DIY’ install on any 15Amp circuit with a 16-cubic-inch electrical box. A “straightforward” rated “how-to” video showing how the Power2U can be installed in 20 minutes or less is available.

Money Saving, Energy Efficient

In addition to being convenient to use, the Power2U provides two energy efficiency features. The intelligent Smart Power design only outputs enough charging power to meet the requirements of the device that is attached. The specially designed spring-loaded Safety Shutters completely turn off power to the USB ports when a connecting cable is removed.
