Charge Your Device In a Safe Way!

 

 

UPDATE: NOW AVAILABLE at Gordon online.

COMING SOON! Everyone has a chargeable device now. From a phone to a tablet. And it never fails that when you need it, the battery is dead or on its way!

The problem with the chargers, is the adapter that you plug the cord in is huge. If you have other things plugged in this can be a problem. USB type outlets have been out for awhile now, but, what about the kitchen, bathroom or garage?? These require GFCI outlets, and to fit the charging adapter in the outlet, you have to unplug everything else.

Legrand has the answer: Radiant® 15A Tamper-Resistant Self-Test GFCI USB Type-AC Outlet. Coming Soon to Gordon Electric Supply!

Enjoy superior safety and the convenience of built-in USB charging, in a first-of-its-kind outlet!
