Home » There Are a Lot of Reasons to Like Legrand

We love them at IEC Chesapeake because they are an active and supportive Associate Partner; as a contractor, you should love the new PlugTail Hybrid USB Charging Receptacle.

It may not roll off the tongue- but here’s what it will do:

Makes you more productive

  • Receptacles install 3-5 times faster
  • Significant labor savings
  • Twist, click, screw, DONE!

…and it’s safe

  • Finger-safe solution (no exposed terminals/contacts)
  • Tamper-resistant, GFCI, nightlight, audible alarm products

Simply snap in replacement device. Connectors are universal for all receptacles and switches. A pre-wired connector prevents any miswiring; spend less time and money on trim work.

This product will allow charging of any USB 1.0,2.0, 3.0, and 3.1(USB Type-C connection port) device. As a contractor you are well aware that the “charging” market is a growth explosion market.

The average American charges their phone 1.9 times a day. Sixty percent of people say they feel anxiety when batteries are running low on their devices…ever been waiting for a plane at the airport and had a stranger ask if you have a charger “friendly” to their dying device? I have. They would just about do anything to sit next to you for 30 minutes to charge up.

By 2020 the market expects to see over 11 billion connected devices worldwide.  Eleven billion.

Run, don’t walk, to your friendly local Legrand distributor. Your commercial installations will thank you.
