Some of y'all northerners seem a tad on the too tight side. Life doesn't need to be serious 24/7.

I looked at the Levitons and they have one hot and one neutral screw, both on the same side. No tab obviously.

Legrande Adorne has this thing:



That is two devices, the bottom is the USB, the top is a splittable duplex.

Talked to my inspector. He won't allow a stand alone USB receptacle to be fed from a kitchen counter receptacle.

Thanks for he idea, splatz, but the Adorn will look out of place. I'll run separate wiring for the USB devices.

That would look out of place anywhere!!!
But it does answer the ground up or ground down question, BOTH.
