FastMac has announced a 110V wall power outlet that can be used to replace any existing wall outlet. The TruePower U Socket contains two USB charging ports in addition to the standard 3-prong power outlet ports. The USB ports aren’t vampires – they don’t pull any power unless something is plugged in for charging. FastMac says they are waiting for final UL Approval before shipping, so they are taking pre-orders now and expecting to ship in the second quarter of 2010. The True Power U Socket is currently selling for $19.95, and you won’t be charged until the product is ready for shipping.
