2017 Best Charging Receptacles: Chronicles of Top Greener

From USB Type-A Outlet to USB Type-C Outlet

A couple years ago I went to a coffee shop to do some work. As I was looking for an electric outlet to charge my laptop there were two electric outlets on the wall with two USB Type-A receptacles on each one.  I was so impressed by the fact that I could charge my phone through a USB Type-A cord directly without an adapter.

A few years later, I started working at my current company, Top Greener, and found that there are electric outlets that have USB Type-C ports built into the outlet. Completely blew my mind. For those of you who don’t know, the Type-C cord provides much faster charging and data transfer speed. After learning about this, I knew the Type-C connector was going to be the USB to rule over all USBs.

Consider many high-tech items on the market today which are probably going to go on sale for Christmas.  A large majority of these items are either already built with wireless connection or Type-C charging and data transfer. Items such as the Nintendo Switch charge way faster as Type-C items. Plus, every major smart phone brand from Samsung to apple is changing their cords and connection ports from Type-A to Type-C.

Although wireless charging is convenient, transferring data and charging through USB Type-C offers much faster speeds. Frank Azor, the Alienware and XPS general manager at Dell stated in an interview with CNET, “Fast forward five years, you’ll be able to go to an airport and charge your notebook without carrying your AC adapter “.

Let’s Hit on the Facts

So, ask yourself, how are you adapting to this transition?

Count the rooms in your house. Which room do you spend the most time in? If you are a workaholic like myself, the typical response would most likely be your work space.

Count approximately how many items are in this room that need to be powered by electricity.

In my own work station I have my 27 inch monitor, iPhone, laptop, and Amazon Echo. That’s four devices that need full energy support. Top that with lights, speakers, and other electronics, there just aren’t enough sockets for my electricity output.

Here are 3 issues I realize many people commonly run into when it comes to powering their electronics.

  1. You have to sacrifice the battery life of one device for another because there aren’t enough outlets for charging. This happens often, especially when you have guests in the house.
Not enough outletsImage: Self-explanatory

2. It takes way too long to restore your battery to full battery mode, and usually in the            process, your phone will be overcharged and become damaged.

     3. You have to constantly carry an extra adapter with you to plug into the wall, and               you are tired of always losing them.

Consider these three pains, and consider replacing your electric outlet with a smarter outlet. It is less hassle when charging your devices.

Better Work Space Equals Better Efficiency

In investment, how you use your money is how your money will grow in the future. From the same concept, how efficient you can manage your electricity input can determine how efficient your device will run in the long run.

Giant business empires such as Google and Microsoft put tremendous amount of effort in their office space in an effort to provide their employees the best working environment..

Take a visit to Google and you will be blown away by their environment. I am not saying you have to model your business like Google, all I am pointing out is technology is crucial, and if you are not building your business with better technology/office equipment, it will be hard for you to compete in the long run.

Here are a some benefits for why you should adapt your energy output smartly:

  1. Prolong longevity and protection for your electronics.
  2. Higher efficiency technology for a comfortable work setting increases work flow.
  3. Convenience with less crowded wiring mess also increases better work flow.
  4. Prevent hazardous electricity short circuits inside your wall.

Researched theory by American Express, companies that upgrades office equipment increase growth by 51%.

Google Fact: Companies that provide the most comfortable environments have higher growth rates.

For a more efficient work space, replace your old outlet with a USB Type-C outlet!

Smartphones with even higher charging speeds and camera resolution better than last year, built-in AI technology for home automation, drones that fly in high altitude, and one of the thing that excites me the most, the new Nintendo Switch. Yes, your nerd radar has caught my inner gamer.
