Why You Need a Cell Phone Charger Outlet in Your Home

Let me ask you a question.  Ever had a guest or family member in your house ask to borrow your cell phone charger?

Owasso Teenager

 

You know how it goes.  They say, "Hey uh, do you have a phone charger I can borrow?"  Then you go scrambling around to find the one you have behind your bed.  Or in your office.  Or wherever it was you left it last.  And when you find it, they're all like, "Oh my gosh!  Thank you SO much.  My phone was at 1% and about to die!"  Then they spend the rest of the evening standing by wherever their phone is charging so they can keep an eye on it.

 

Yep, it's the life we live.

Here in our part of the world, the wife and I volunteer with the Junior High and High School students at our church.  And we have a pool at our house.  So you know what that means, right?  Yeah, we have lots of kids over at our place through the summertime.  And we love it.  Except for that cell phone charger thing. Because when you have a bunch of teenagers, you have a lot of need to charge cell phones.

Cell Phone Charger OutletAfter going through lots of cell phone charging cords and plug adapters, I finally found an answer to our little problem.  It's a Cell Phone Charger Outlet for your home and it is cool!   

I found this one at one of the Home Improvement box stores.  It was around $40.00, which I think is pricey.  They can be purchased at the Owasso Home Depot now for around $25.00.  It was easy to install and works like a charm.  And what's really cool is that you can plug in two cell phones to charge at a time OR if you're really on your game, four cell phones to charge (Two in the middle and one in phone plug adapters on the top and bottom).

Now, whenever the kids come over (church kids or our kids), we've got an easily adaptable space where they can charge their phones.  And to make things easier, we keep spare cell phone charging cords around for Iphones and Androids.

After all, when you're a REALTOR® you're always prepared!

That's really cool, Bob! And it's great of you and your wife to be involved with the youth at your church. Don't they still need an attachment of some sort to plug in their phones?

Posted by Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS, Broker Associate, ABR, 601-278-4513 (Front Gate Real Estate) about 2 years ago

Bob - that is future.  I am sure will will start seeing this in more new homes

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) about 2 years ago

Pat, you can use an adapter or plug directly into the outlet!

 

Posted by Bob Haywood, BobHaywood.com (McGraw Realtors) about 2 years ago

Grant, that's where I first saw one of these things!

Posted by Bob Haywood, BobHaywood.com (McGraw Realtors) about 2 years ago

Thats a terrific idea.  Love little gadgets that actually do their job.

Posted by Chris and Dick Dovorany, Broker/Associate at Premiere Plus Realty ( Homes for Sale in Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero, Florida) about 2 years ago

That's smart.  In Starbucks, they are starting to have wireless chargers.  I'm so excited.

Posted by Debbie Gartner, The Flooring Girl & Blog Stylist -Dynamo Marketers (The Flooring Girl) about 2 years ago

Bob- I am a bit of a gadget freak, so I love this. For travel, I bought an adapter that looks something like this... we can charge up to 4 iphones/tablets at a time. 

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) about 2 years ago

We charge our cell phones at night on the self in our linen closet. That is where we had one of these outlets installed by the electrician when we built the house a year ago. In fact it is a double so we can charge our toothbrushes and ipads at the same time.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) about 2 years ago

Wow!  You have to know they exist in order to know you need one!  Now I know, and I can't wait to get one installed!

Posted by Janna Scharf, Coeur d'Alene Idaho Real Estate Expert (Keller Williams Realty Coeur d'Alene) about 2 years ago

Bob, a great idea since most of our gadgets need charging. Enjoy your day!

Posted by Wayne Martin, Real Estate Broker (Wayne M Martin) about 2 years ago

Thank you for the information. I will share it with others.

               Thank you Bob Haywood 

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) about 2 years ago

Good morning Bob,

There is a cob web corner to install one in the basement! It would serve two purposes; one getting the area clean and if they are tuned into the phone away from the party.

Make yourself a great day.

Posted by Raymond E. Camp, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson Greater Rochester (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) about 2 years ago

I am glad that I didnt miss your post this week thanks to Kathy!

Posted by Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®, Giving Back With Each Home Sold! (RE/MAX Realty Center ) about 2 years ago

Good morning Bob. This is funny but also true. Your informative information is something i will use.

Posted by Sheila Anderson, The Real Estate Whisperer Who Listens 732-715-1133 (Referral Group Incorporated) about 2 years ago

Thanks so much for sharing this great idea.

Enjoy the holiday weekend.

Posted by Roy Kelley, Roy and Dolores Kelley Photographs (Realty Group Referrals) about 2 years ago

I've had several of these for 3 years or so now; it just plugs into my outlets (3 prong plug) without the need to replace the existing outlet.

 

Posted by Susan Emo, Kingston and the 1000 Islands Area (Sotheby's International Realty Canada - Brokerage) about 2 years ago

I love this idea. I can put it where the old phone jack comes in. I wonder about hooking it up? Doesn't it need new wiring?

Posted by Karen Fiddler, Broker/Owner, Orange County & Lake Arrowhead, CA (949)510-2395 (Karen Parsons-Fiddler, Broker 949-510-2395) about 2 years ago

I actually keep a portable charger with me at all times.  And we purchased this for our home.  It is also a surge protector and no "install" it just plugs in an outlet and there you go.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) about 2 years ago

Those cell phone charger outlets have been around for a little while now and I can't wait to replace some of the outlets in my house with them! Especially the ones by our couches in our living room where everyone gathers. 

Posted by Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert, Broker/Owner of Zion Realty ZionRealtyAZ.com (Zion Realty) about 2 years ago

Great idea Bob, will be checking into getting a few. My brother has an old flip phone and while visiting asked if we had a cord to fit his phone as the battery was getting low. I didn't have any, so he just went to his car, started it and charged is phone.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Perry Wellington Realty) about 2 years ago

It's nice not to tie up a port of your computer or to have a charger taking up an outlet. I think the first time I saw one was in an airport about 3 years ago.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm Owner/Broker National Marketing Realtors (National Marketing Realtors) about 2 years ago

How cool is this! Debbie Reynolds was smart to do this... and handy for guests too!

Posted by Rob Thomas, Bristol TN-VA & Tri Cities Agent, ABR, GRI, e-Pro (Prestige Homes of The Tri Cities, Inc. CALL....423-341-6954) about 2 years ago

This is definitely the way to go for anyone building a new home or remodeling.  Those plugin USB ports will also work well in the meantime.

Posted by Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES, Florida Waterfront and Country Club Living (Tropic Shores Realty - Ich spreche Deutsch!) about 2 years ago

What a handy gadget.  I'll have to clue my husband in to the existence of this outlet and see if he would like to install one in the house.

Posted by Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long and Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA) about 2 years ago

Bob Haywood this is really great idea. Next time when I am shopping, I'll keep this in mind - real cool!

Posted by Praful Thakkar, Andover, MA: Andover Luxury Homes For Sale (eXp Realty) about 2 years ago

Great idea!  I like the pic shared by Susan Emo too!

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) about 2 years ago

Interesting, I hadn't seen these before. And yes, I have had people come over and ask if I have a charger.

Posted by Kat Palmiotti, The House Kat (Grand Lux Realty, 914-419-0270, kat@thehousekat.com) about 2 years ago

What a great idea!  And it's not just for cell phones.  You can charge your iPad, digital camera and anything else that needs a boost.

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, For Your Home in the Capital (Evers & Company Real Estate, Inc.) about 2 years ago

Hi Bob...Will share this information with my kids. Like to be one step ahead of them if I can. Thank you.

Kate

Posted by Kate Elim, Realtor 540-226-1964, Selling Homes & Land a (Dockside Realty) about 2 years ago

This is a great idea.  We all need to stop in and get a charge these days.  What a crazy world.

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) about 2 years ago

Great point. The newer homes we have are being built with these, but I've only seen that in the past couple of years. I've purchased several that I can plug in around the house, just in case.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Area Realtor (RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC) about 2 years ago

I really like this idea.  It looks like some of the outlets I have seen at the airport. Locating adapters can be a problem spur of the moment unless a person is organized.  Let's just say, I'll be much happier with a couple of these U sockets in my house.  Thanks for the heads up! 

Posted by Jack Tenold, Conventional and Reverse (Caliber Home Loans, Inc. NMLS 15622) about 2 years ago

Good morning Bob Haywood,

I've been gone for 2+ weeks and to try and catch back up I started with Kathy Streib's Sunday post on her "Ah-ha" moments for the week! Your post certainly qualifies! I am definitely going to be looking for these..I liked te photo Susan Emo showed too..thanks for sharing!
