What are the benefits of USB wall sockets for hotels?

A USB wall socket is a standard wall socket that also includes a connection point for USB cables. Some sockets offer two or more USB power points, as well as the standard plug power point too. The advantages of updating your hotel room walls sockets to include USB power are innumerable, and include:

  • Increased guest convenience- when travelling, a number of plug related issues can occur. From forgetting the plug itself, to intercontinental differences with chargers and power points, plugs can cause frustrating problems. And with the need for constant connectivity, access to power point and chargers is a key concern for many of those travelling. Your hotel can reduce the stress and frustration associated with these issues by providing guests with the ability to charge or access power directly through the universal USB cable.
  • Fewer sockets necessary- when using USB wall sockets, fewer sockets are usually necessary overall. This is because the USB power points offer additional space to provide power, within the same space as the standard socket, sometimes doubling your power potential. This means that older, Victorian or traditional hotels with few socket spaces can upgrade to USB sockets and increase the power options immediately, without needing to add to the existing circuitry, or rewire the whole hotel.
