Kitchen has a split receptacle with 2 hot wires (black and red). The metal tab on the receptacle (on the side of black/red wires) is broken off. There is a combined 20amp breaker at the electrical panel.
I am trying to install a USB charger receptacle, but it has just neutral, hot and ground terminals.
Is it safe to simply cap off the red wire, tape it up nicely, and push it to the back of the gang box?
I am not comfortable changing the breaker on the electrical panel.
