Getting your USB device charged should not be such a hassle, especially when you don’t have any free USB ports or they don’t supply enough power to feed your electricity eating monster. Lots of adapters can be found online and even in gas stations, but most of the time they are space consuming and sometimes malfunction due poor quality. SnapPower is currently getting lots of backers on Kickstarter with a project that should make USB charging very easy with only a perfectly fit adapter and a screw.


Actually, you’ll also need a screwdriver to operate the screw, but that’s still easy. The SnapPower charger is actually a regular power outlet cover plate that was slightly redesigned to fit an USB charger. All you have to do is to dismount one of your current power cover plates and screw the SnapPower USB Charger in its place. You will still be able to use the outlets just as before, but now you are able to plug in an USB charging device as well. When it comes to actual use, SnapPower USB Charger is fully compatible with Duplex and Decor outlets which have the exposed screw terminals, without concern of manufacturer or year of construction.

However, you will not be able to use SnapPower with GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets which can be usually found in bathrooms. These outlets do not present an exposed screw so there is no way for the USB plate to draw its power from the electrical line. SnapPower Charger comes in White, Light Almond and Ivory color tones; go ahead and choose the one that suits best with your interior design.
