Mobile Charging Station

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Any motorhome can become a charging station with the Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle, which delivers USB and regular electrical power in a single device. Besides two 15-amp, 120-volt AC outlets for traditional use, the receptacle is fitted with twin USB ports. The company said it’s the only manufacturer to offer such a device. The receptacle is compatible with any USB 1.1, 2.0 or 3.0 electronic equipment to charge smartphones, digital readers, tablet computers, MP3 players, mobile phones or GPS units.

The Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle provides 3 amps of USB power and will also rapidly recharge a single tablet to 100 percent in five to six hours. Should the Hubbell receptacle become overloaded, it cycles off briefly and then returns to normal function without manual resetting. A green LED light indicates USB power availability. Offered in black, gray, ivory, light almond or white, it retails for $49.99.
