One issue that any tech head gadget lover runs into is either a shortage of power outlets to utilize for all of the electronics in your house or an overabundance of ugly plug-in extensions that quickly become an eye sore. RCA decided to try and come up with a solution with the RCA USB Outlet Wall Plate.
After thinking about the design of this wall plate, It might be even better if there were four USB outlets and completely get rid of all the standard outlets but we are sure that already exists. The idea behind this wall plate is pretty simple and if you really wanted to get creative with the electrical wiring, you can supposedly take on a DIY project and keep both outlets then have 2 USB ports as well. We don’t necessarily encourage people to mess with electricity projects due to the possibility of electrocution but maybe this is worth it. We’ll let you roll the dice on that decision.
It is interesting to think about how we might eventually start to rethink the entire idea of an electrical outlet as the USB port becomes more and more universal. If enough technology continues to make the USB port mainstream, gadgets like the RCA USB Wall Plate won’t become an added benefit but much more the norm.
