Goodbye wall warts!
Yep, it is a great charger and is compatible with a lot of devices, charges them fast and incidentally comes with a good quality cable.The Qualcomm certification, and 4 amps *per port* is the key to the slightly higher price. It did not charge my Dell Venue tablet, but Dell has their own ideas on charging and interchangeability.
We had a little trouble with the 120v plug, it has little covers inside the slots to keep kiddies from sticking things in there; just work with it. (I also bought the Topgreener outlet with two 120v plugs and it is satisfactory for ordinary 2 amp devices.)
Both outlets had a backwire feature which lets you push the stripped end into the back and not have to wrap around the screw. I like this but the description was incorrect; 14 ga wire will be too small for that feature, it needs to be 12 ga. No problem, I just wrapped the 14 ga around the terminal screws. I recommend this product if you want to charge something besides a phone. Or, choose the outlet with two 120v plugs if all you need is 2 amp chargers. Both Topgreener products were nicer than the Levitons.

Great product. Wish I had it a year ago.
I wish this came out sooner! I'm not sure why a quick charge 3.0 outlet like this isn't more widely available but I don't think I could ask for any more features than what this one offers. Both USB jacks offer quick charge, versus some where you have to mind which jack you plug your phone into. Charges the wife's iPad just fine as well. The biscuit color seems to match perfectly with my existing wall plate. It's also nice of them to throw in a micro USB cord - which is also of pretty decent quality.
Installation was what you'd expect from modern outlets and has the self-grabbing wire holes for a painless hookup. I like that it's not a very big (deep) outlet and fits easily in the outlet box without having to crush the wiring. Overall, a great buy. I'll probably pick up a few more for around the house at strategic locations.

Does what it says
Have had this for a few weeks now. Fast charges my QC 3.0 phones without a problem. Barely gets warm under full load. I like it and I hope it continues to perform this way for a long time to come.
I really wish they would get rid of the childproof/tamperproof plug mechanism on the 120V outlet.......what a PAIN! I hate it!
However, I believe this is a new 2014 National Electrical Code thing they have to have. Sometimes safety goes too far, and this is what it looks like.
Anyways, overall I like this outlet and it does what it says.
Will install in a deep box only! Check your electrical box first to make sure it is not a shallow box.
Will update if anything changes. Thanks!

Should be in all 'techie' homes.
This is simply an amazing product. Currently QC 3.0 is very new in the industry and while tech companies often are leaders, the more standard building products and everyday items usually lag considerably. I was very excited to find this wall outlet that has what I was looking for. This is definitely not poor or cheap construction either. This fits in perfectly with all the outlets in my house, installation was a breeze, and I had no concerns whatsoever with the quality. The true test was confirmation that this really does live up to the QC 3.0 specs... and it does! This charges my Google Pixel XL just as fast as the factory charger.
Having this outlet has helped cleanup the look of our counter with no more power bricks and we can still charge two devices simultaneously AND still have a power outlet.

Looks great and easy to install
We installed this in our kitchen so that we can use it for our phones. It charges so fast, and it has been wonderful and so easy to use! It was very easy to install, as we just replaced the old one with this one, and it has worked wonderfully. I am so glad that we got this instead of plugging in a charger, as it looks much better. This has been a great buy.

Installation was relatively easy, first time will be the hardest
Plug works as advertised, it charges my wife's S8 at full speed, and fast charges (not quite full speed) on my Pixel XL. Installation was relatively easy, first time will be the hardest, just make sure your power is off on the plug your replacing. I cut the fuse that cut the light on the same switch, and it turns out the plug was on a different circuit, even tho both the light switch and plug were in the same box. So thinking that it I had shut off the fuse, I ended up electrocuting myself a bit, so double check a cord plugged into a light to ensure the power is off on the outlet you're working on. We love it and got a screwless cover for it and looks awesome. Thanks.

Great price on a 2 port Quick Charge
Pretty easy replacement of the existing receptacle. Charges two Nexus 6 pretty quickly. The included micro USB was a nice add. Comes with three easy to swap color plates, white, black and almond. The single 110v receptacle is a child safety version. Makes it a little harder to plug stuff in, but it's nice (T/R) to be a little safer around kids and in the kitchen where this one has been installed. I had to go pick up a new decora cover as my old one was a standard type, which was to be expected.

Worth the Money!
Wasn't sure how this was going to work out and was a little disappointed losing an outlet but totally worth the money! Oh it is so nice having a QC 2.0 wall outlet instead of having to plug in a wall wart. My Galaxy S7 Edge flies when plugged in and my wife can charge her iPhone 6S with the other USB.
Definitely recommended if you have a QC enabled device for fast charging! So nice to plug in before heading out.

Seems to work just fine so far
Seems to work just fine so far, easy to install no issues, I question if it's UL approved (reason for four stars) since I see no label or mark any place on the product or box so be aware there may be some risk to install if it was never tested by a testing lab like UL or other testing facility since it could cause a fire or overheat or....? , still installed it anyway knowing the risk

Easy to install
Easy to install. Works as advertised. Quick Charge wall outlet is a very nice feature.
Time will tell on this however. I've had a couple other wall units like this, without the quick charge feature and different brands, that failed between 6 months and a year later. I hope this lasts quite a bit longer than that!
