SnapPower Charger Review

SnapPower USB Instruction

Hello all! I’ve been invited to test the SnapPower charger. It’s a simple but neat concept: instead of clogging up your power outlets and offending power strips with the phone charger itself, SnapPower immediately bypasses all of that and has you plug the straight USB cord from your charger into your smart phone.

It was at first daunting, so I enlisted help from some of my friends, because one of the major things I do not have expertise in is electrical construction. I know that sticking a fork or otherwise sticking anything metal into an outlet will require “boom” “boom” and an ozone flash. Even the warning is “Failure to turn OFF electrical power prior to installing or removing the Guidelight or Charger can result in electrical shock, fires, and/or death.” However, both of my friends have had experience with electrical work and it’s more of a precaution against if the house would have shoddy or faulty wiring from a prior contractor. However, as I do not wish of you all to die by lightning substance, PLEASE follow the instructions.

How this outlet works, is that you unscrew the outlet plate from the front. Then the clips on the side or “power prongs” as they are called will slide over and around the side screw terminal, of which power the USB. The SnapPower charger makes it virtually impossible for your fingers to even touch the terminals themselves. However, since you ARE dealing with electricity – exercise caution at all times.  Be careful of some inadvertent interference with some of the wiring due to extended screws, sheet rock, other wiring or an uncentered outlet – but SnapPower addresses all of those possible issues that may be involved. Also, they do list the orientation and non-compatible outlets in their paperwork so that might help with immediate troubleshooting.

Overall, if there are no outstanding issues that may cause the terminals to be obscured, and the power is turned off to the outlet (access the circuit breaker for this). Remove the existing coverplate and check for obstructions – align the product over the outlet and make sure that the prongs slide inside the electrical box. Don’t forget to turn back the power on to the outlet when done.

I had two separate people test the charger and they were quite impressed. One’s phone went from 65%-71% and in 20 minutes it charged his phone to 88%. That might not be impressive, but he also noted he was USING his phone the whole while – surfing the internet, emails, texting and it STILL charged fast. So, the direct connection to the outlet still worked.

My other concern was what about a power surge? Would your phone be fried? Would it be the same as if you plugged your charger into an outlet?

The SnapPower charger retails at $20 for both the duplex and decor pack. They do offer multiple packs up from 2, 3, 5, and 10.
