If you’re like me, you often find yourself thinking how great it would be if the power outlets in your home also have built-in USB ports. You also find yourself thinking just as often that there’s no way you’re messing with electricity or paying an electrician hundreds of dollars to install them. Then, I found the SnapPower Electrical Outlet Cover Plate with USB Charger and everything changed. It’s brilliant — all you have to do is unscrew your current wall plate and pop this one on in its place. It draws power just from a couple of integrated metal contacts so you don’t even have to touch a single wire!

Here’s some additional information from the product page:

  • EASY INSTALL – You don’t have to be an electrician or magician to install the USB Charger. It was designed for a truly simple solution to the device nightmare. It does not require brackets, batteries, mounts, or wires. Just snap it on and go.
  • FREES UP OUTLETS – You can finally use all of the outlets in your house. Don’t let devices and their standard plugs eat up all of your outlets. You can have a lamp, alarm clock and your phone all on one nightstand. Or have your tablet in the kitchen without sacrificing an outlet.
  • LOW PROFILE – With it’s sleek design you won’t have to leave space between the wall and your furniture. The USB plugs into the side of the plate and not the front.
