Newer Technology, Inc. today announced that its Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet was listed as a winner in the “Excellence in Custom Installation Technologies and Products” category of the 2012 CustomRetailer EXC!TE Awards. After debuting at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show as the industry’s first UL Listed in-wall charging solution, the Power2U has earned top reviews and wide, cross-industry acclaim for providing a modern, centralized location for simultaneously charging/powering up to four Apple, Android, and other USB chargeable devices.

Chosen from Field of Innovative Solutions

Each year, CustomRetailer chooses products that stand out for being innovative, high-performing, and solutions-oriented to honor with an EXC!TE Award. Other winners this year included Honeywell, Marantz, and Denon Electronics. The EXC!TE winner’s listing for the Power2U included info on the Power2U’s convenience for powering and charging USB devices at home as a dual-socket wall outlet solution that eliminates unsightly adapter clutter while blending in seamlessly as a standard power outlet and its ‘How-to’ video showing install time in under 20 minutes.

We are honored to be named as a Custom Installation Technology winner in this prestigious award program,” said Grant Dahlke, Brand Manager, Newer Technology, Inc. “Our vision for the Power2U has always been to provide a straightforward install solution for a more attractive and convenient method of charging/powering the multiple mobile devices used in everyday life.

Praised and Proven by Independent Reviewers

The NewerTech Power2U has captured broad praise from highly diverse independent product review sources. Good Morning America called it ‘brilliant’; the Miami Herald named it ‘gadget of the year’; Gadget Review called it ‘the wave of the future’; and its easy, under 20 minutes installation time was confirmed by Tech Tilt and Two Shots of Geek. There’s the practical side of Power2U use as well. Well Connected Mom said, “I love it … you can plug in your phone and your tablet along with your toaster oven and coffee maker or electric shaver and electric toothbrush.”
