USB Power Integrated Into AC Wall Outlets

Dan Wood examines several options for modifying your wall outlet to charge USB devices. I didn’t do this because it didn’t look like the outlet would fit in my electrical box and because I was concerned about the lack of surge protection. I ended up getting an exterior rotatable charger from Belkin; Wood found a slimmer one from XTG Technology.

What are the holes for on these exterior charger? Cooling? At first, I thought these were outlets.

@Bob Not sure which holes you’re referring to. Both exterior chargers have two USB ports and three regular outlets.
