    Both great ideas, frees up at least the plug where the power block would usually go. And so easy to install.

    These are the ones I have been using.
    I think they look a little nicer.

    I like those, Ron, do you know if they are available with 20A rating?

    This is the one I have. It’s a 20A rated at 3.1A for the USBs.

    I like that but if you look at most of your cell phone charging cables, they aren’t usually very long.

    That’s why you throw them in the drawer and buy 2 meter long cables. I didn’t even unpack my phone’s original cable/charger.

    This 10 ft one is only 5 bucks. http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B009GUQ1N0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2X12ETEG84MLT&coliid=I1DCKSYDFNNSYE

    But wouldn’t that prematurely burn out ones battery if it’s rated for a lower charge level than 3.1 amps?

    There is software on most devices to keep this from happening…same thing that stops charging the battery when it’s full.

    I put these outlets in all my kitchen and bath remodels. Clients love them.

    The clip on type, or the kind you have to tie 😉

    These are great, thanks for posting. I could use 4 of these in my house. I’ll keep these in mind!

    i actually have a bunch of the white ones from monoprice. They don’t work very well for cell phones. I don’t know why but the usb mini side doesn’t seem to want to stay in the phone receptacle so it doesn’t charge if you move it from the optimal spot.

    Nice solution, need to look for those to replace a few of mine.

    I find that happens to the cords over time. When they get finnicky, I just pitch them and replace.
    I would still like to install a couple of receptacles with USB ports but will likely wait a while til the price comes down. The ones I have seen are $35 or so.

    The side-exiting cable in the ones Kurt first posted would be neater above a countertop. Not keen on the pressure contacts for the electrical though.
    In another few years this type of receptacle will be commonplace, I’m sure.

    That’s been my concern from the beginning. There is no way it would hold up in the long run. IMO the clip on type is a huge fire hazard. Loose connections cause heat…then fire. Use the real receptical!

    I missed this thread before and was just going to ask how ya wire up the plate Kurt posted? So yous are saying it just clips on and those extra side flanges are terminals that touch the screws on the outlet??

    Exactly. Spring clips that hold the contacts against the screws on the existing receptacle.
