Have you ever wondered how you could get a USB part into your wall socket?

While it might seem like something fiddly and complex, a new device called: SnapPower, takes the hard work out of installation.

Without much fuss, the SnapPower simply replaces the cover and adds a USB port just under the power outlet.

All you have to do is unscrew the existing cover, and put SnapPower in its space and tighten the screw, with the whole process taking up to five minutes.  

The USB port can deliver 1A of power, which is enough to charge a phone in a reasonable amount of time, but will take longer to charge something like an iPad. The USB port position below the standard outlets means it doesn't block them from being used by other appliances.

At $19.99 US the replacement the fitting would be best for maybe on or two sockets in the home.

You can check out the full range at the companies website
