FastMac U-Sockets are duplex AC receptacles with built-in USB ports. U-Sockets can power any device that is charged via USB port. The idea is to eliminate clutter, stay neat and organized, and remove the need for bulky, unattractive wall adapters that take up an excess amount of space.

U-Sockets are perfect for charging devices like iPods, iPhones, and iPads. Instead of fumbling around late at night searching for the little white charger cube after noticing that your iPhone is down to its last 8% of battery charge and you still plan on lying in bed playing a few more rounds of Angry Bird — just plug your cable directly into a U-Socket. If you’re anything like us, then you have at least one Apple USB outlet receptacle in every single room of your house. Better idea? Just put a U-Socket in each room.

U-Sockets are easy to install and will fit any traditional electrical gang box (16 cubic inches or larger). The outlets are specifically designed to be 5-star energy efficient. These USB outlets can reduce energy costs by up to $20/year versus other USB ports.

Common tech items charged via USB ports:

  • iPods

  • Tablets
  • Mobile phones
  • Smart phones

  • Sony PlayStation
  • Bluetooth headsets
  • Digital cameras
