UK adults purchased a staggering 21.2 million digital devices during the first two months of the lockdown according to Deloitte’s Digital Consumer Trends 2020 Report. Game consoles, laptops, smart speakers and eReaders saw the highest uptake, a mixture of old and new generation devices requiring either a USB Type A or Type C charge point, respectively. Add to this the rapid growth in smart phone upgrades, and the argument for specifying combined USB-A&C plates as ‘standard’ is compelling!
Hamilton offers a choice of two USB-A&C options:
Combined Double Switched Dual 2.4A USB Sockets:
Available in four popular plate designs: Hartland, Hartland G2, Hartland CFX and Sheer CFX, and up to twelve different finishes, including Polished, Satin and Antique Brass, as well as the New 2022 Anthra Gray and Basalt Gray.
Double switched USB sockets deliver functionality of the future while ensuring interior style and design aspirations are achieved – sitting perfectly either side of the bed and are now a must-have in multi-purpose areas such as the kitchen/dining/living rooms currently acting as home offices and makeshift classrooms.
But faster charging needs more power, more rapidly. To deliver the higher rate of charge for high-capacity devices, such as the new MacBook Pro or iPad Pro.
Rated at an impressive 45W Type C / 18W Type A, Hamilton’s Euro Modules ensure ultra-fast charging. Modules are available in either black and white, and can be fitted into one of fourteen decorative plate designs, in twelve classic finishes. These modules work particularly well in bespoke, custom-made plates often positioned alongside beds/desk/dressing table areas in hotel guestrooms.
For designers looking to offer future-proof wiring accessories, Hamilton’s USB charging products provide transitional solutions. Its sockets with combined USB-A and USB-C ports provide charging to new and legacy devices, while the Euro Module delivers the additional current and voltage required for more power-thirsty devices.
