About this project
SnapPower Charger Overview
- Powerful 1-amp USB charger built into an outlet cover plate.
- Charges any USB device (phones, phablets, tablets, hotspots, etc.) and eliminates the need for bulky wall warts.
- Installs in seconds over any standard outlet in your home.
- There’s no wiring to mess with, and no batteries to sort out. Just bring a screwdriver and a good attitude.
- For renters, this solution provides convenient wall charging that can be taken with you when you move. If you move out, just pop the old cover back on.
Make any standard outlet in your home USB compatible...in seconds
Installation is drop-dead simple. For real. Seriously.
Wiring is a buzzkill. The SnapPower Charger installs in literally seconds, and requires no wiring whatsoever. Here’s the play-by-play:
Simplicity makes all the difference
Take back your outlets!
Even when charging your devices, both outlets remain open and available for other uses at all times.
With custom-built components engineered to fit entirely inside the cover plate, it's the sleekest, most low profile charger around.
Its slim design allows furniture to be positioned snug against the wall. The side access to the charging port enables you to plug your USB cables in with no hassle.
No more searching for lost adapters
Unlike plug-in adapters that get shuffled around from room to room (and eventually lost), the SnapPower Charger is securely screwed to the outlet and always there when you need it.
Charges any device from any manufacturer
Blends in with any home decor
How it works (or, the science behind the magic)
What type of outlets can be used with the SnapPower Charger?
The SnapPower Charger comes in a variety of styles and colors. The Chargers are compatible with standard duplex and decor outlets that have exposed screw terminals, regardless of the manufacturer or year. The SnapPower charger is not compatible with Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets that are sometimes found in bathrooms. GFCI outlets do not have the required screw terminals and can be identified by the “test” and “reset” buttons located on the face of the outlet.

Can you install the SnapPower Charger upside down (with the USB port above the outlet)?
The SnapPower Charger is designed to work in only one orientation. The USB port is designed to be installed on the same side as the ground prongs on the outlet. For example: If the ground prongs on the outlet are facing down, the Charger will need to be installed with the USB port beneath the outlet. If the ground prongs on the outlet are facing up, then the Charger will need to be installed with the USB port above the outlet (pictured below).
Risks and challenges
We've spent a lot of time engineering a product that meets the highest standards of performance, durability and convenience. Our manufacture has been selected and we are gearing up for production. We learned a lot from our first Kickstarter campaign and look forward to delivering once again on time. With that being said, surprises can happen and we will be sure to always be transparent and inform our backers of potential hurdles that may come up.
Supply Chain Risk
We've finalized our production schedule and plans with experienced manufacturers to ensure that the SnapPower Charger is on schedule to deliver according to our forecast. Our team is experienced in the full spectrum of the Supply Chain process. However, unexpected shortages and delays can occur when dealing with numerous components from different suppliers. If anything does come up, we will be sure to notify our backers promptly and work quickly to resolve any issues.
