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.

    There are at least two other manufacturers of combo USB outlets. Cooper Wiring makes single 120v + 2 USB, selling for $12-16. Newer Technology makes duplex 120v +2 USB, selling for $40-42. I have one of the latter and two of the former in my Class A. Need tone aware of wall depth!
