I purchased one of these when I first moved into my girlfriend's home, and installed it in our bedroom. I have used it ever since to charge my phone overnight. We are now moving into a new condo, and I have purchased several to make sure that every room has a charging station. When I first saw it listed in my Best Buy Deal of the Day email, I was struck by the cleverness of the idea and purchased one. When I attempted to install it, I discovered a couple of minor challenges in the design. First of all, the depth of the outlet housing is quite a bit more significant than the standard outlet that I was replacing. Hence, getting it to fit into the socket housing in this older home was a little tricky, as I needed to move wires around, etc. Other than that, connecting it was very simple and straightforward.
Second, once installed, I realized that the USB ports are pretty close to the power outlets, making it difficult, if not impossible, to plug in a USB cable and a larger sized power plug at the same time. A charger will fit quite comfortably with a normal size power plug - say a lamp or standard power strip - but if you're attempting to plug in some type of AC converter with a larger plug housing, it may block access to USB port. As previously mentioned, these are very minor challenges. Overall, I’m very happy with the purchase and the usefulness of the item.
