TruePower UCS Power Outlet with Built-In USB Ports

FastMac UCS / USB Outlet

A mac-centric electronics e-tailer,, has listed a new patent-pending UCS power outlet that features 2 x USB ports. The beauty of this $9.95 device is that it can be installed on any existing wall outlet with no special wiring. What’s more, the USB ports have been designed to only draw power when something is physically connected. Sounds smart to me. The new outlet is waiting for UL Approval and hopes to begin shipping them in early 2010. [via]
