Bunk Recepticle/USB Port

My CRS is kicking in bigtime, can't remember who's build it was that had a dual 110v/USB port for all 4 bunks. Have you had enough experience in the bus to know if they are needed or overkill. How often were 8 110v, and 4 USB circuits were needed at once?
I'm thinking one on each side supplying 2 bunks would be sufficient and cut down on wiring unneeded port. There will be other ports in the bus if needed.

I seem to think I read that on wmkbailey‘s build. IDK though I’ve looked at a lot of stuff in the last year.

Some good questions: who’s using the bunks? What are they plugging in? My thought would immediately to computers and cell phones.

Computers need 120v outlet usually, but they also have batteries that they run on for 3 or 4 hours.

Cell phones just need a cigarette outlet and one of those adapters.

I'm using these combo plate. I will be alone most times, so I certainly don't need 4, but thinking for future sale. How often would 8-110v and 8 USB ports would be needed at the same time. I'm only going to put in 2 at the bunks, more can be added later if need be.
