What is a duplex outlet?

A duplex outlet has two ports for electrical receptacles, allowing you to plug in two appliances. The wall plate is designed to protect from electric shock hazards. CyberTech Lighting duplex outlets also have spaces for USB plug-ins as well.

Are outlets with USB ports safe?

Yes, outlets with USB ports are safe to use. Some people are concerned about higher voltage going to their phone or other USB device, but CyberTech’s receptacles are designed to distribute power evenly and prevent surges.

What is the difference between a 15-amp and 20-amp receptacle?

15-amp and 20-amp receptacles are the most common types of outlets in homes. 15-amp outlets have two vertical slots and a u-shaped grounding hole. 20-amp receptacles have a horizontal slot that branches off from its vertical slots. 20-amp outlets are better wired for appliances such as microwaves and must operate on a 20-amp circuit. 15-amp receptacles can operate on a 15-amp or 20-amp circuit.
