Installed in place of a traditional switch, the USB Switch Combination Charger device allows users to control lights or receptacles while also providing a convenient place to power electronics via USB.

The switch is capable of single-pole or three-way wiring to accommodate control from two points; it is isolated from the USB for independent use. Providing 2.1 amps of charging power, the device can safely charge:

  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Laptops
  • MP3 players
  • Digital cameras
  • Other electronic devices

“With numerous electronic devices now found in almost every home, Hubbell’s new USB Switch Combination Chargers allow homeowners to add charging capability without taking up more wall space,” says Vic Flagello, director of residential marketing for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “When placed near surfaces, these devices help establish ‘drop zones’ that maximize space while providing a convenient place to power electronics.”

The devices are suitable for new construction or renovation projects, and are available in six colors – brown, ivory, white, gray, black, and light almond – to match any home’s décor.
