Custom cabinet manufacturer Wood- Mode has partnered with Docking Drawer to develop a series of in-drawer power outlets. The slim design allows hardware to fit behind standard-size drawers (a minimum 2-in. space is required) in a variety of styles and capacities, so you can choose a setup to match your needs, for everything from charging your device to plugging in a hair dryer. Most popular in the new series is the $370 Blade Duo Charging Series, which includes both AC outlets and USB ports that can charge up to eight devices simultaneously. As a precaution, the system is equipped with a built-in breaker and a thermostat set to cut power when the surrounding area reaches 120°F. The outlets will fit into standard frameless, framed, and inset cabinets, and can be purchased separately or installed by the manufacturer before shipping. All told, the outlets provide a clever, safe way to keep counters clear of charging cords and devices.
