Shelton, Conn. – June 1, 2014 – Bryant Electric, a division of Hubbell Incorporated, is pleased to announce the availability of USB 4 Port Charger Outlets to its extensive line of wiring devices.
These devices are designed to deliver more charging options for today's personal electronics by providing the user the ability to charge multiple portable electronic devices at one time.

The new Bryant USB 4 Port Charger Outlet complies with the latest battery charging and compatibility specifications for use with Apple® and Samsung® products, other smart phones and tablets, cameras, USB lights, GPS, smart watches and more. It includes four 5Amp, 5V DC, type A, class 2.0 USB ports in a decorator style receptacle. The USB 4 Port Outlets are compliant with battery charging specification USB BC1.2 and compatible with USB 1.1/2.0/3.0 devices.

Using the same USB cables that are used to charge devices from laptops and PCs, Bryant USB ports offer 5 amps and a 5VDC rating, and are designed to provide maximum charging for personal electronics at the fastest rates allowable. A LED indicator lets users know that USB power is available to charge devices. Bryant USB outlets and receptacles use 10,000 cycle rated USB ports; this keeps the cords firmly in place with great connectivity, and provides for longer device life, especially when compared to other USB ports often found in the industry.

The Bryant USB 4 Port Charger Outlet features a decorator, flush-fit design that fits into most standard single-gang plastic or metal boxes. These USB 4 Port Outlets feature a USB port door, which when opened, enables power, and when closed all power is switched
off. This eliminates all current flow for a "zero" no load draw. Buildings looking to provide 100% green efficiency in power delivery will maximize LEED and energy design.

The device is also suitable for use on circuits with AFCI and GFCI protection.

Designed in accordance with the accepted USB charging standard for personal electronics, the Bryant USB 4 Port Charger Outlet is also energy efficient. "The spring loaded shutter and 10,000 cycle rated USB ports really differentiate this device as a long-lasting, heavy duty device". says Christian Thompson, Director of Marketing for Bryant Electric. "The Bryant USB 4 Port Charger Outlet also provides a cost-effective energy-efficient and convenient charging solution. When not in use, they draw zero power and go into a "sleep mode".

Ideal for use in retrofit and new construction to add USB capacity in schools and universities, dormitories, hotels, offices, reception areas, hospitals, work stations, labs, restaurants, airports and homes, the Bryant USB 4 Port Charger Outlets provide maximum USB amperage for the fastest charging available on the market today. Also great option in two-gang installations when used in conjunction with surge, isolated ground, or standard duplex receptacles.
