I was in Home Depot earlier and noticed they had some light-duty generic surge strips with two built-in USB-A ports for $10 per 2-pack They were green and in the holiday section. It looks like they're probably also available for shipping in some areas.

No, they won't fast-charge anything, they don't have HDMI and they don't have gold contacts. They're just basic power strips with a couple of low-power USB ports.

Note: These are cheap, unbranded power strips and probably aren't ideal for anything high-current, but may be good for secondary locations where you just want an outlet with a USB port. A few places that I'd probably use them … at a work bench to charge small battery-powered tools or flashlights by USB … at an end table by the couch to plug in a lamp and for occasional EarPod charging … Christmas light strips … on a porch with a cheap USB security cam to watch for package deliveries … in a kitchen where you may want to plug in a hand-mixer and maybe a tablet for recipes.

I'm compelled to buy every cord and power strip I see that has a flat plug.
Fyi not for use outdoors. Mentioning this cause the green color might give that impression.

There's always some weirdo that likes them flat, I'm more of the view of Sir Mix-a-lot…

FWIW: I made the mistake of using a green colored power strip similar to this for outdoor lighting (because I'm closed minded and assumed all green power things were for outdoor use). Short circuited during the first rain, tripping a few breakers (not just one, idk how), and half of my house lost power while I was out of town. My fault for assuming and poor planning so check the label before going outside! Don't do what I did (says me at my second rodeo 😂)

Haha I passed up this deal… then thought to myself… "well if this is a flat plug I'll probably go back and pull the trigger." Sure enough!
So many places where a flat plug just makes sense.
Thanks OP! This is a pretty decent price for what you get for a basic set up + flat plug to boot!

I'd look at installing a gfci on the first outlet on your outdoor branch circuit. Little concerning that multiple breakers flipped.

So it seems like USB plugs have been switching their marketing to Watts lately.

And I know that you get: Volts x Amps = Watts.

But how do I tell what the Watts on these USB plugs are? I know they are 2.4amps (each).

Can anyone enlighten me?

This USB is 5V, so 5V * 2.4A = 12W
