- QuestionWhat are the installation instructions? Do I need an electrician to install this? Do I have to remove the old wiring to install this? (5 Answers)Answers
The instructions are given in the box. This is like installing any outlet. Simply because you ask the question, I assume you are not familiar with doing this sort of installation yourself. In that case, I would recommend that you get a qualified electrician to do it for you. Note also that the device required a full-size outlet box (in the wall). A shallow outlet box one will not work.

- QuestionI have aluminium wire in my house. Is this for both CU and AL or CU only? (4 Answers)Answers
The manufacturer states that this device is not compatible with AL wiring. However, it is compatible with copper-clad aluminum which is more typical for residential wiring than the plain aluminum used briefly before being condemned. Copper clad aluminum will look like copper so a visual inspection should tell. Even so, I would recommend a dab of anti-oxidizing compound on the contacts in those circumstances to be safe. If your branch circuit wiring is original AL (not clad) then you should replace it. If you are unsure of what you have now for branch circuit wiring, consider adding another circuit (copper) for this receptacle.

- QuestionMy old wall outlet has 2 plugs and 4 wires (2 blacks and 2 white), and each plug has its own black and white wires. But the Insignia USB Charger Wall outlet has only 1 black and 1 white connectors. So, how to connect? (5 Answers)Answers
You must make a black pigtail (short wire), connect the two existing black wires together with the black pigtail using the proper size wire nut and then connect the black pigtail to the proper side of the outlet (dark screw). Do the same with the white wires connecting the white pigtail to the silver screw. Given that you can do serious damage to yourself and your house if you make a mistake, I suggest that if you are not sure about what you are doing that you find a friend who does to help you.
