Apple accessory maker NewerTechnology recently released a specialized electrical outlet, called the Power2U (http://www.newertech.com/products/power2u.php), that includes two USB ports for charging mobile devices. Available in four colorsâ??to match any dĂ©corâ??and coming in at just under $30, it seems like a handy upgrade for the home.

We installed one ourselves to see just how easy it is as a DIY project and to get a feel for the convenience it offers. We came away learning more about installing electrical equipment in a home than we expected, but once installation was complete, the results spoke for themselves.

Caveat installer

First things first: if you are in any way uncomfortable with or unsure of proper safety procedures for installing an electrical outlet, hire a licensed electrician to do the work for you. The procedure shouldn't involve anything more than wire strippers and a screwdriver for most installs, but there's no need to risk life and limb if you're not comfortable tinkering.
