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!
