Newer Technology Inc. announced that it will feature its Power2U AC/USB wall outlet this week at SEBC 2013 in Orlando, Florida as the official “Recharging Zone” at the show. Newer Technology has deployed a number of convenient Power2U dual USB charging outlets in booth #741. As any trade show attendee knows well, finding a spot to get a quick charge for essential smartphones and tablets at an industry trade event is always a nightmare. Newer Technology is ensuring attendees at this year’s Southeast Building Conference can avoid huddling around power outlets off the show floor and have plenty of space for a recharge.
Power2U combines AC and USB power into a single, energy-efficient wall fixture. This must-have electrical accessory for anything from residential to commercial buildings delivers charge and power for up to four devices simultaneously via built-in USB ports and the National Electrical Code (NEC)-compliant and tamper-resistant AC receptacles, while eliminating unsightly clutter created by multiple cables and bulky power adapters. Power2U is designed for standard 15-Amp and commercial grade 20-Amp circuits. All units are available in white, light almond, ivory and black, and trade pricing is available, with special discounts on 10-pack, 20-pack, 100-pack, and volume orders.
“We think the SEBC show is a perfect place to introduce Power2U to the top builders, contractors and remodelers in the Southeast,” said Larry O’Connor, president of Newer Technology. “Power2U is a must-have feature for any new residential, business or public building because, these days, we all need on-the-go access to USB power. We have special volume pricing for SEBC attendees and encourage anyone to drop by for a friendly chat and recharge.”
Power2U makes any wall “today-ready,” eliminates “vampire power draw”
Power2U provides direct USB port charging for all USB devices and packs enough punch to even charge an iPad via USB. A slim profile provides an aesthetically clean look that hides the USB ports when in use. Smart shutters open and power up immediately when the USB is engaged, and close to power down upon removal — eliminating “vampire power draw.” Power2U’s smart circuitry delivers only the power necessary to charge iPhones, iPads and any other USB device.
Simpson Property Group LP, an experienced and fully integrated real estate firm that provides services in multifamily property management, development and construction, recognized the customer benefits of the Power2U outlets and installed them in every unit at the Skyhouse Austin. Skyhouse Austin is Simpson Housing’s latest development in Austin, Texas, which is scheduled to open later this year.
“USB ports have become commonplace for charging a wide range of devices. Newer Technology’s Dual USB power outlet provides a cost-effective and convenient charging location, using the same USB cables that charge devices from computers,” said Jennifer Roberts, regional marketing director for Simpson Property Group. “Their small size and safe, efficient DC power USB ports are capable of charging up to four devices simultaneously, and the device’s low power consumption means they cost less to operate. We see these as a value-added feature for our residents, and are planning to put them in all new additions in Dallas, Houston and Atlanta, coming in 2014.”
