Do Your Need USB Powerpoints?

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can install and repair your home’s USB powerpoints. On average, an Australian home has a multitude of electronic devices including laptops, tablets and smartphones that require charging all of the time.

The original solution was to plug the charger into a convenient (or inconvenient) powerpoint and trust that no-one would unplug it to, say, put the kettle on. Sockets in powerpoints and even on powerboards are always in demand.

The solution is to do away with the charger and either include on the powerpoint USB sockets or just have a dedicated USB wall socket.

What is a USB Powerpoint?

A USB powerpoint or USB socket looks just like a normal wall socket, but there is one obvious difference. As well as having 1 or 2 three pronged sockets for standard electrical plugs, there are also USB ports. These eliminate the need for a charger that you plug into the normal socket.

Should I update to USB Powerpoints?

USB powerpoints are starting to appear everywhere. You find USB charging points in new houses, hotel rooms, planes and even on public transport. Devices that use USB ports are now so ubiquitous that an update is due in most households, especially if you have a lot of visitors, who, like everyone, are always looking to charge their phones.

You’ll find that teenagers are drawn to USB points like moths to a flame.

Advantages of USB Powerpoints

If you’re looking for a quick charge, better efficiency and more convenience, USB powerpoints are the go. Direct charging from a USB powerpoint is faster than the old style of charger. And when it comes to charging your phone, faster is definitely better. The other thing about a USB wall socket is that it looks the part and makes it obvious to any guests where to plug in their phone if need be.

There are all sorts of styles and colours of wall plates on offer to match your décor. The USB ports have all the configurations you could need with single dedicated USB powerpoints, single conventional powerpoints with additional USB socket or double powerpoints with dual USB chargers.

No Go Slow

The days of your computer slowing down while watching a video and charging the phone through its USB port at the same time are over with convenient USB sockets to take up the slack.

FAQs – All You Could Want to Know About USB Powerpoints

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors have all the answers to your USB powerpoint questions.

Most USB powerpoints include more than the one port so that you can charge numerous devices at once. USB powerpoints come in a range of styles where you can combine regular outlets with USB ports on the one powerpoint, giving you the flexibility to charge in multiple ways.

As there are many options to choose from, when looking at USB powerpoints for your home make sure you think about how you’d like to use them to help you decide on how many USB ports you’d need.

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can provide a range of USB powerpoint solutions to suit your needs. Need help deciding? Get in touch with our qualified technicians today!

Ever had issues when connecting your USB, where you end up flipping it over multiple times before actually connecting it the correct way up? You’re not alone. The USB C is essentially a new version of the original USB, however it’s fully reversible, meaning it can connect either side.

Also, unlike the original USB, which has only 4-pins, the USB C connector includes a 24-pin system, with the ability to transfer more signals and essentially providing more types of power and data.

The USB C port is generally the same as the USB port, but with the USB C connector instead of the original USB connector. More and more technologies are utilising the USB C cables, so it’s important to keep your ports updated too.

Yes, USB wall sockets installed correctly are generally safe to use. USB wall outlets safely convert your home or businesses 240-volt mains electricity to the standard 5-volts that’s used to power all of your electronic devices.

To make sure that your wall sockets with USB are safely installed have one of our professional and qualified electricians install it for you.
