Best Wall Outlets with Charging Ports

At this point, most households have some sort of portable device that requires charging, whether it's a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or vape (AKA douche flute). Sometimes you have to negotiate between leaving a lamp and TV plugged in or having a charged phone. You can save yourself the annoyance by picking up a wall outlet with USB ports. That way you can charge your devices while leaving all the appliances and other electronics plugged in.

Here are the best wall outlets with charging ports.

Topgreener TU21548A Smart Dual USB Charger Outlet

Topgreener's USB wall outlet is The Wirecutter's number one pick and one of the best-reviewed USB outlets on Amazon. This 4.8A/5V, 24W outlet features two USB-A ports that are able to read the power needs of your devices and maximize charging accordingly in order to charge them as quickly as possible (up to Quick Charge C 3.0 speeds).

Each power outlet is tamper-resistant, preventing objects from being jammed inside, meeting safety standards. As a bonus, these outlets come with three click-on colored faceplates in black, white, and almond.

  • Aka ****** flute xddddddddddd that's hilarious but so true
  • I have the Leviton T5632-W, best thing I ever bought for the kitchen. Reduced wire clutter and charges fast af. Well worth the costs
  • Got a Levitron from Home Depot. Don't have to find adapters or unplug the coffee maker anymore. Might have jumped the gun too soon with USB C becoming the new standard. Probably going to buy a C version in the next year.
  • Same, Home Depot. Total impulse buy, but no regrets. Ehh, usb a is fine for a while. I'll upgrade when needed.
  • .
  • I'd expect more with USB C
  • Yep, once these things start popping up with USB-C, I will start buying them. As it is now... nah.
  • Amazon is having a flash sale on the Topgreener TU21548A 3 pack for $50.
  • I've been using several EZO Power 6-outlet wall mounts. It also helps having 10 foot cables attached, both in home and in the car.
  • Good article. I have been wanting to get something like these outlets. Now maybe someone will do an article on best nightstands that have these outlets.
  • Regarding that Belkin at the end: "You can also choose one power outlets, two outlets, or six."? The picture shows three outlets (er, receptacles actually)!
  • I've got the Snappower plug with single USB port. I love it! It was so easy to install without needing to connect wires, and works great
