USB Outlet Gives You Multiple Places to Power up Gadgets

Have you suddenly found yourself with more USB-powered devices than you have USB outlets on your computer? The Bolt USB Outlet, designed by Jeffrey Pettit, takes the place of an electrical outlet and gives you six USB plugs that you can use to charge all of your various important things. The Bolt plugs into a regular outlet and draws its power from your home’s electric supply.

Besides giving you a simple, central place to charge a lot of devices at once, the Bolt also eliminates the danger of an open electrical outlet for young, curious children. You could achieve the same effect with child safety outlet covers, but those wouldn’t let you charge all of the gadgets that you need to live your modern digital life.
