    Wall outlets look like simple pieces of hardware. And we’re all familiar with them, because we use them every day at home and at the office. Even though most wall outlets look similar, they do offer quite a few different features. These design differences allow you to find just the right one for your needs. Basic wall outlets will have two plugs, one above the other. However, you can purchase outlets that contain three, four, or six plugs. A newer feature in some wall outlets is the inclusion of USB charging ports for a smartphone or tablet. It’s important to match the amperage rating of the wall outlet to the wiring you have in your home. Common options are 15 and 20 amps for residential use. In a bathroom or kitchen, your local laws may require that you use GFCI wall outlets.
