USB Sock-IT Adds Two Smart-Charging USB Ports to Any Power Outlet

When you think of adding new gadgets into your arsenal, the wall plate probably never crosses your mind. It's ok. Most wall plates are boring. However, most wall plates are not the USB Sock-IT Plugin Outlet.

The USB Sock-IT Plugin Outlet is the new, flagship product by 8G Electronics, LLC. For $24.99 (MSRP), this option can convert any outlet into an outlet with USB charging ports. Of course, there are plenty of options like this already on the market. However, what makes the USB Sock-IT Plugin Outlet unique is that it adds two USB ports into your wall outlet, but doesn't ask for one of your existing two electrical outlets in return.

The end result is a solution that supplies two USB ports and two AC outlets in one location, for all of your charging needs. And these days, those can be some hefty needs!

Of course, you shouldn't expect to stuff that outlet. According to 8G Electronics, LLC, the USB Sock-IT Plugin Outlet has 3 amps of shared power, which is equivalent to the power needed to charge two Apple iPads at once. Once everything is plugged in, the device actually measures how much power is needed and can accommodate that.

Another nifty perk: Once that device is fully charged, the USB Sock-IT Plugin Outlet will shut off automatically. There's no "phantom electricity" and no waste.

No electrician is needed, either. The outlet has a 2-plug design and quarter-inch lip, so you can secure it over any standard outlet. It can be moved from room to room or you can install it as a permanent fixture.

"The world relies on staying connected, and more and more people consume data than ever," said David Novak, 8G's VP of M,rketing. "The Plugin Outlet stands to be our flagship product, and is designed to help the consumer convert their everyday electrical outlets into a USB charging solution -- with Smart Technology added to boot."

If you're interested in the USB Sock-IT Plugin Outlet, 8G is currently funding the product through Indiegogo. If all goes well, the company plans to start shipping the product to investors by June 2013.

Amazon Echo Plus (Second-Gen) Review

The second-gen Amazon Echo Plus is shorter, louder and better-looking than ever. What's not to like? Here's our review.
Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Nest Thermostat E Review

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest
Should I Buy The Nest Thermostat E?
The Nest E is a great smart thermostat that’s comfortably among the most stylish and easy to use on the market, but as it stands in the UK, there’s not much reason to opt for the E over the existing 3rd gen Nest, which has some extra functionality for a similar price.It's a different story in the US though - a bigger price gap makes the E an easy recommendation if you're in the States.
