Will a USB wall outlet charge my devices faster?

Enerlites USB wall outlets are known for their high-speed charging ability without the need for AC adapters. All of their wall USB chargers use smart chips that detect a device's power consumption in order to maximize charging efficiency. A USB outlet that is capable of fast charging delivers more amperage than the standard USB output of 0.5A.

 

What is the maximum amperage for USB wall outlets?

The amount of amperage that your outlet can put out will determine how quickly your devices will be able to charge. The higher the amp, the bigger the device can be. Each USB port will draw a specific number of amps based on its max amp number. So, if an outlet has two ports and is listed as 4.0A, then each port will draw 2A, unless specified otherwise. Sometimes the manufacturer will specify individual amperages per port.

There are six different AMP options to choose from:

  • 1.0A/2.0A: Both 1.0A and 2.0A are standard USB ports that are ideal for charging smart phones.
  • 3.0A/3.1A: Both 3.0A and 3.1A can charge medium electronics, such as tablets and Bluetooth headsets.
  • 4.0A: These USB outlets can charge large devices, like laptops.
  • 4.8A: These USB ports have a maximum power charge of 4.8 amperages and are also ideal for large devices.

Are USB outlets tamper resistant?

We offer a variety of USB-enabled electrical outlets that are tamper resistant. Tamper resistant outlets protect against electrical shock hazards by preventing anyone from tampering with the receptacle. These outlets come equipped with a spring loaded shutter that will close off the opening of the outlet to disrupt insertion of small foreign objects.
