Sometimes even the simplest DIY projects become complex

On a recent visit to my in-laws, my FIL gave me a spare USB Charging Electrical Outlet they had lying around.  As much as I embrace technology, I didn’t really feel like I need one of these in our house any time soon.  But since they gave it to me for free, essentially saving me $15, I figured I might as well install it in the kitchen to have a second charging area.  My wife Nightingale might appreciate being able to keep her iPad charged while cooking.
