NewerTech Power2U Receives 2015 IoT Evolution Connected Home and Building Award


NewerTech announced today that the NewerTech Power2U has received a 2015 IoT Evolution Connected Home and Building Award from IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering IoT (Internet of Things) technologies.

The award honors organizations delivering software or hardware solutions that enable the advancement of the smart home and building industry.

Power2U is an electrical wall outlet with two USB ports that enable convenient charging of up to four mobile devices at a single electrical outlet. Power2U was the first product of its type on the market and makes wall outlets “today ready” for charging the increasing numbers of mobile devices.

Ideal “DIY” Upgrade For Multiple Device Homes
Power2U is fully listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and features tamper-resistant AC sockets that are compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC). The Power2U is designed to meet current building codes and be safe for use in homes and offices. Users can install Power2U in minutes thanks to the compact design and free how-to installation video.

Power2U is a great solution for multi-device homes as it allows for up to four devices to be charged at a single outlet. Whether in an office, living room, or beside a bed, the Power2U delivers convenience and blends seamlessly anywhere wall outlets can be installed.

“The redesigned Power2U is easier to install than ever before, and maintains UL and NEC safety standards,” said Larry O’Connor, CEO, NewerTech. “It is a convenient and energy-efficient solution for charging and powering the growing number of mobile devices that modern households rely on. This award from IoT Evolution extends the awards and great reviews that Power2U has received since its introduction.”

Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution Magazine, had this to say of NewerTech’s award.

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Connected Home and Building Award reflect innovation driving the machine-to-machine market today. It is my honor to congratulate NewerTech for their innovative work and contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Ford.

“It is my pleasure to recognize the NewerTech Power2U, an innovative solution that earned NewerTech the 2015 IoT Evolution Connected Home and Building Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from NewerTech in the future.”

The new Power2U outlet is available now at and comes in four colors – White, Black, Light Almond and Ivory.
