Small home improvements can make a big difference in a home and might affect its saleability. They may not affect resale price (these days it takes a lot to move the needle there) but enough of them could make your home more attractive to a buyer. Electrical outlets that include USB ports are an improvement to consider.

USB-equipped outlets would work great in a home office but also in a kitchen or in bedrooms. These days it's pretty common to find all manner of USB-equipped devices throughout the home. And when you think about it, it's a great convenience to be able to charge devices in more than one place.

The picture to the left shows a Newer Technology Power2U AC Wall Outlet with USB Charging Ports that I found on As you can see, it has a pair of electrical outlets and a pair of USB ports. These are fairly easy to install, but check with an electrician if you lack experience or training.
