The folks from Newer Technology got right back to me saying: "The NewerTech Power2U's energy efficient Spring-loaded Safety Shutters turn power off to the USB ports to eliminate 'vampire' energy draw when a connecting cable is removed. Also, when a device is plugged in for charging, the Smart Power design only outputs enough charging power required by the attached device." Wow -- it looks like they've really thought this out (more than I did at any rate)

That's a very good question -- I don't have a clue -- I'll email the folks at Newer Technology and ask them

what is the power consumption of the regulators when nothing is plugged into the USB connectors?

But then I would still have had the white charger boxes lying around on the floor

Max, great solution. I would have replaced the outlet with a 4x4 box so I could have twice the number of outlets, but then I am different.

Max, my friend, well said. I feel your pain, on the "shared suffering" part! LoL On playing with live power "I do not recommended" but I have to admit, I have done it in the rush of the moment, on couple of occasions and have paid the price with sparks and fright!

LOL It's certainly true that making one's wife happy is central to being happy oneself (my wife does not like to suffer "quietly or alone" one might say :-)

I am with you Max on this time investment, even if it had taken a whole day to refurbish the kitchen counter to make this happen. It was time well spent to keep the queen of the house happy and on your good side ;-). I have spent days replacing, rewiring, and rearranging old fluorescent fixtures in an old warehouse to install brighter lighting for her art workshop. Most friends tell me that a well paid electrician, could have done it for a small ransom and taken away my grief, but then again, the king would not have been flowered with complements by his queen would it?... ;-)

## "...if your wife is anything like mine..." Can your wife lash a man at 50-feet with her tongue (and not in a nice way :-)?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
