Yeah, not only is the electricity shocking, but so is the price of this AC adapter!
I’ve got to admit that I’d love to have a “USB” format 5 volt power supply available in the plugs in my house to charge the various electronic gizmos I own. It would save me from keeping track of the dozen various AC adapters that all just output a standard 5 volts.
Well, here is such a device: the USB superboster wall plate. It’s an in-wall AC adapter that installs in a standard wall box, just like any other outlet. It provides a USB type plug and the requisite 5v and 500ma of power. The problem? Well, the $130 pricetag is pretty significant! If they could build something like this into a standard dual-gang outlet for a couple bucks more than normal, I’d be game, but no way I’m paying $130 for an adapter!
