    Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle | ActionHub

    Modern families with on-the-go lifestyles demand plenty of outlets for recharging their electronic devices. Any RV can become a charging station with the Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle, which delivers both USB and regular electrical power in a single device.

    Besides its two 15-amp, 125V AC outlets for traditional use, the receptacle is fitted with twin USB ports.  Hubbell is the only manufacturer to offer such a device. It’s compatible with any USB 1.1, 2.0 or 3.0 electronic equipment to charge smart phones, digital readers, tablet computers, MP3 players, mobile phones or GPS units.

    The Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle provides a full 3 amps of USB power—enough to charge two tablets simultaneously.  Most competitive units produce only 2 amps or less. It will also rapidly recharge a single tablet from 0% to 100% in five to six hours, comparable to most manufacturers’ own charging systems.

    Should the Hubbell receptacle become overloaded, it cycles off briefly, then returns to normal function without manual resetting. A green LED light indicates USB power availability.

    With Hubbell’s Style Line decorator finish and modern flush fit design, the receptacle looks right at home in the most stylish surroundings. It’s ideal for replacement of existing RV receptacles or new builds, and installs in a standard electrical box deeper than 1.5″ with internal AC/MC clamps. The faceplate measures 2.62″ H x 1.30″ W.

    This Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle meets the most current industry standards. Tamper-resistant, it’s cULus listed to UL498 and UL1310. It also complies with UL94 for 5V flammability rating, battery charging specification USB BC1.2 and Part 15 of the FCC rules. Offered in black, gray, ivory, light almond or white, it retails for $49.99.
