Upgrading electrical usb outlet- 2010 8.0
« on: September 17, 2017, 11:03:32 PM »
Assuming I can just pull out the existing outlet in the kitchen cabinet and replace it with one of the newer models that also have 2 USB ports built in?

Yes, it should be straightforward to do that. A lower tech option is to buy a 2 USB adapter that plugs into the cigarette lighter socket if you don't also need the cig lighter socket simultaneously. Amazon has them.

That's a great idea to start, plus previous owner added those to the corner 12v rca inputs.  Looking at that main outlet again, I do feel like I should switch out to gfci since right below the sink.
