These receptacles are too deep to put into the exterior walls so I just put two in, one on the fridge wall by the TV and the other in the nightstand next to the queen bed.

If you charge iPads, make sure the USB ports are rated to charge larger devices.

If I were to do it again I might look into this easier solution
thingCharger

Kelvin
The thing charger looks like the best way to go. Thanks.

I have found there are so many small devices that plug into the cigarette lighter outlet that are handy and easy to use: Why go to all the trouble of installing an outlet?

I just installed one yesterday. Planning on installing two more. The key is install them onto things. In this case, the end of the bed or the end of the couch. Things other than the aluminum walls.

Make sure you read the fine print on the power being generated at the USB ports. Some device will generate only 5 Vdc @ 1.0 amp (5 watts) which is okay for a phone but not enough for any recent iPad that requires 5 Vdc @ 2.1 amp (10.5 watts). Those fixtures with two or more USB sockets may be limited to one high power device or two low power devices. I have seen a few products rated 5 VDC @ 3 amp which could fail with a device at 5 VDC @ 1.0 amp and a device requiring 5 VDC @ 2.1 amp.

The Leviton one I purchased 5VDC ~ 3.6A DC at both ports. It's No. T5632 for anyone interested.

Then that Leviton device could safely carry an iPad and a phone, but not two iPads.

We routinely connect iPads to some of our lower rated USB outlets at home and they do not fail, they simply charge the iPad at a slower rate.

Apple has voltage regulation in all it's devices.
