I didn’t realize tamper resistant meant give up all hope of using this ever.

So, tamper resistant I’m ok with. All humans resistant? Not so much.
If you have a child you are better off with the plug ins.... because when your child is older and/or you actually want to make use of the outlet it’s a complete and utter aggravation just to stick a cord in there.
For me, I don’t have children. But many of my friends do, and when changing out a bunch of electrical in my home I figured it sensible to replace all the “child accessible” outlets with tamper resistant ones.
Well, I should’ve checked how they felt before I did a half dozen outlets...... Sorry, but I’d take the risk of electrocution over having that happen every time I need to charge my laptop.
So, General synopsis: If you like torturing yourself, go right ahead and buy 3 packs while you’re at it. If you have a child, there has to be a better game in town. If you have to tell an adult to not stick a fork in the outlet, you have larger problems to deal with and likely aren’t reading this. And if none of the above apply, just get regular outlets and save yourself the aggravating afternoon I just had.
Tamper resistant is NOT a real feature. Kind of like the oxygen masks that come down in airplanes- if you find yourself requiring one your chance of survival is close to nil and it’s more of an emotional support device.
