Current Werks Introduces Energy-Saving USB Wall Outlets New powerful In-Wall USB outlets rapidly charge portable electronics and make the need for bulky AC wall adapters obsolete; proprietary, energy-saving green design eliminates standby power and reduces energy costs
LOS GATOS, Calif., Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Current Werks, a leading innovator in green mobile power storage and charging devices, today introduced two industry-changing, energy-saving USB wall outlets: the Quattro and Duo. Current Werks will exhibit these innovations in booth #74010 in the Eureka Park TechZone for new products and services at the 2012 International CES Tradeshow, January 10-13 in Las Vegas.
The Quattro (patent pending) is the first product in the industry that replaces a standard electrical wall outlet with four powerful USB charging ports. The Quattro's four USB ports deliver a combined output of 22Watts, making the Quattro the most powerful in-wall charging solution available anywhere. The Quattro also features an innovative (patent pending) tamper-resistant door that when closed completely eliminates standby power, also known as vampire power. The Quattro has the ability to replace four bulky USB AC adapters with one wall outlet.
The Duo (patent pending) features two powerful in-wall USB charging ports delivering 16Watts of output power from a standard 110V wall outlet. The Duo's advanced power management design gives the consumer a total of four charging solutions, two USB charging ports and two standard US/CAN sockets from a single wall outlet. This makes the Duo the second most powerful in-wall charging solution available in the market today, surpassed only by the Quattro. The Duo supports 15Amp and 20Amp wall receptacles.
The Quattro and Duo USB Wall Outlets, with their energy-saving design, are ideal for both commercial and residential applications. They are powerful enough to provide the fastest charge available to even the most power-hungry portable devices, such as Apple's iPad® and iPhone® as well as Android® smartphones and tablets. The Quattro and Duo outlets are designed to maximize charging power and wall outlet space available for charging, while eliminating unnecessary charging wall clutter.
"These products are the latest innovations in green tech charging," said Patrick Manning, CEO, Current Werks. "The Quattro and Duo USB wall outlets represent the modern solution of charging portable devices for a society constantly on the go. These outlets provide the consumer with a clutter-free charging environment that saves money, while reducing demand on the electrical grid. Competitively priced, the Quattro and the Duo are the perfect solutions for sustainable building in both residential and commercial applications."
