With the ever changing modernization of life, we have more and more electronics at home, which means more and more Electrical Outlets, Sockets and Switches to keep them running. The latest options in power outlets go far beyond just a place to plug in a toaster. Here are some new innovative and cool Electrical Outlet designs, which could help you keep the mess of wires in check and get a whole lot more from your electrical outlets.
With this design, you purchase only the number of tabs you will need for your electronics. Each tab connects to the next and can be removed and used individually or rearranged as needed. The strip can be purchased with corresponding stickers to label each device being used for ease of use and mobility. The tabs include energy efficient LED lighting for ease of use and easier access.
The Belkin TimeOutlet concept is a modular, stackable surge protector divided into 4 quadrants. Each section corresponds to a time of day. When that time is over, power is cut from everything in the first quadrant and power turns on in the next. This is great for electronics that may be turned off but still using power while being plugged in. This commonly occurs with items like toasters, coffee makers, microwaves and lamps.
Power Outlets with USB Ports Built In
Instead of having to unplug a device to plug in your phone charger, these outlets come with the option of plugging in only your USB cord, without disrupting the operation of plugged in devices. Most of these outlets come with two USB ports, so that a total of 4 devices can be operating simultaneously. Ports are powered by smart chips that recognize the requirements of an inserted device to optimize charging accordingly.
Outlets with Built in LED Lights
These outlets are a plug-and-play replacement for the standard plug-in night lights and hardwired guide lights found on the market today; they install within seconds and require no wires or batteries. Designed to look like and replace the standard outlet cover plate, these LED light outlets are equipped with light emitting diodes (LEDs) to provide illumination in the dark while keeping both sockets available for use at all times. For convenience, most of these outlets include a light sensor that automatically turns the LEDs on in the dark and off in the light.
