Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DLDL Works exactly as advertised
Works as advertised - charges my usb devices (including iPad). Fits in my existing outlet box, and cover is the same size as before. Installation was just like installing a normal outlet - just connected up the 3 wires and was good to go.
My only comment is that I wish HD sold this in the stores instead of just online so that I didn't need to wait for it to be shipped, but oh well, was worth the wait.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrRobG Great idea!
I've only just recently installed these so they haven't survived the test of time yet. So far, so good. These would not fit in a shallow box as the charging apparatus is pretty deep and it took some effort to stuff this and the wires in a standard box. In the end, it fit... barely, it works and I am happy.
NOTE: this DOES support iPad charging. I didn't even think to look that up before purchasing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jame Easy to install, charges my USB powered devices
Cons - charges phone slower than plug-in (USB mode), USB slots covered by power plugs that aren't standard size
Pros - fits into existing outlet box, wiring was easy as directions were very clear
I would buy this product again. Now I can have my lamp, alarm, and phone charger without needing a power strip. Pretty cool product!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by leceke Check your devices first
Other similar products replace one of the power outlets with two side by side USB ports. I like this one since it provides two outlets AND two USB ports. Easy install. Total power provided by the USB port may NOT be sufficient to charge your device. My Blackberry 9930 will not charge using these ports. My Galaxy S3 charges just fine. Older Kindle tablet will not charge, but an iPad seems OK. Bottom line - check the power requirements for the device(s) that you want to charge using this outlet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jld0077 Really convenient being able to charge two phones and still have two sockets available
I'm still stunned that no one stocks this combination electrical socket and USB charging port in the stores. It's no more complicated to install than any other electrical socket, and it's incredibly convenient. We have one kitchen location where we charge phones, plug in the waffle iron or hand blender, etc. -- and this unit has been great. Very glad we ordered it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shannon Pretty convenient
Free up your outlets and charge your devices using the usb charger. Fairly quick install. No problems so far. This is a great idea for you or for a unique gift.

I bought this product, excited that it would solve my outlet issues. I cannot get it to fit in the existing box no matter what I do. Can someone tell me what size box they were able to fit it into???
