My Kids Keep Stealing My Phone Charger!

January 20, 2019

Do you have this problem at your home? Your phone is dying and you need to plug it up to charge, and when you get to the outlet, your USB phone charger is missing! Your kids (or your spouse) stole your phone charger and took it to charge their own phone.

This post is sponsored by USBThere. All opinions are my own.

USBThere Phone Charger Lock

I have found a company that can help you with this problem. It is a new company called USBThere. They have created a device to lock your USB phone charger to the outlet so that no one can unplug it and take it. They also include a retractable charging cable that has three connectors on it. The connectors work for iPhone, Android and anything needing a Type C or USB-C connector.

The USBThere Kit includes:

  • USBThere bracket
  • 3-in-1 USB charging cord (Apple, Android, and USB Type C compatible)
  • Cube wall charger
  • Security screw and key
  • Instruction sheet

To use the device, you simply remove the screw from the plate of any standard outlet, put the lock on and use the special security screw to put the plate back on. The security screw keeps anyone from using a screwdriver to just take the lock off. You can install it in just a couple of minutes or less. Then your problems are over. Your USB phone charger will always be right where you left it.

I do have this problem, however, they would absolutely kill me if I purchased this device. I’ve resorted to having back ups to my back ups. If they can’t charge their phone is a major crisis, so I’ll settle for my fix instead. Cool Gadget tho!

Everyone has to find what works for their family, but if I were you, I would at least make them pay for the backup cables. 🙂

Hey Vanessa! My kids have a love/hate relationship with our USBthere…hate that they can’t take our chargers — but LOVE that their siblings can’t take theirs! They each have one in their own rooms! #winning

I LOVE this! My adapter-stealing son has since moved out, but I sure could have used this when he was here!!!

That is clever that somebody created a lock. We do have this issue but we solved it by buying a bunch of cubes and cables so that now there is enough to go around. Of course, we have to repeat this every few months but that’s life.

With this, you wouldn’t have to repeat the purchase of multiple cables, and even better, this one cable can charge three devices. It is worth it for the multi-cable alone. But every family has to find what works for them.

That used to be us too! Always buying cubes and cables and regardless of how many we bought, there was never one around when I needed it. (grr!) So this has saved us money — AND our sanity! haha!

😂This is hilarious. I could have invented that. I have six kids. It’s a real problem!

Love it! I am glad that I am not the only one. I think that I went through 6 chargers in less than 6 months. Now I have 2 one in the office that is mine, and I take it with me if I leave the house on long trips. The other one is in the living room and it stays there, they have to use to in there or not at all.

We make our kids charge in the same place all the time too. That helps some with the cable problem.

I’ve never heard of a device like this one. Very interesting! Might have to recommend this to my mom! I feel like small things like this make the biggest difference!

That is a really interesting device. I didn’t know there was something like this on the market. I love the fact that you can charge 3 different things at the same time. Thank you for writing this up.

You are welcome! Yes, I love the multi-device charging cable and the fact that it is retractable, less cord mess. That alone is a great help.
