Thanks to the popularity of smartphone technology and tablets, electronic charging devices all run by USB power ports. For years, many of us have had to plug our phones and tablets and other devices into converter devices that would connect to a traditional outlet, but times have changed. While there are many charging options, and all of them still work well, USB wall chargers are gaining more popularity than ever before.
USB outlets are small and accommodating, and the cables not only carry power but also data. They’re beneficial for smart grids, convenient storage, and even solar power. And they’re universal. The benefits are clear. Many people consider USB to be the future of electricity, and it’s easy to see why. But in case you aren’t sure yet, here are some major benefits of installing a USB outlet into your wall.
While some rechargeable devices require you to wait until their battery is full again before using it, USB ports allow you to charge and use the device simultaneously. That’s pretty convenient. Some laptops and PCs have limited ports, reducing the options for using these methods. But a USB wall charger will allow you to make use of its functionalities anytime you need it. Also, many detached USB ports can be bulky, thereby covering up other unused outlets. You won’t have to worry about that with a wall charger.
Using a normal USB power outlet to charge your device through a laptop or desktop computer can provide you with a current of roughly 500 amps maximum. This could sometimes take a bit longer than plugging your device into a cord that connects to a traditional outlet – a not-so-convenient method sometimes. But having a USB wall outlet will allow you to charge faster with about 20 amps more than a desktop or laptop. This is especially beneficial to devices that are larger and have bigger batteries. The stronger current will allow for a minimal charging time of just a few minutes, making it much more efficient.
Because of their sleek and lightweight designs, many USB ports currently on the market are easily lost or damaged. But a USB wall charger is much more durable – it doesn’t go anywhere. Sometimes a home office might require several things to be plugged in at once, creating a potential fire hazard with several USB ports, which can become costly. The wall port will last you for years to come and is made of durable, quality materials.
