Leviton has introduced its Type A/C USB Weather-Resistant Charger/Receptacle. The receptacle is the first outdoor addition to Leviton’s line of In-Wall USB Chargers and can be installed on any GFCI protected circuit to enhance outdoor living.
“Leviton is pleased to offer our customers a safe and reliable outdoor USB charger option,” says William Randall, director of product management, residential, Leviton. “The device delivers a convenient way to charge electronics while spending time outdoors, so users never lose sight of, or access to, their smartphones, tablets, laptops, and more.”
Made for residential and commercial applications including outdoor kitchens, decks, patios, porches, cabanas, restaurants, parks, and more, Leviton’s Type A/C USB Weather-Resistant Charger/Receptacle uses an innovative process that provides added protection to electrical components for long-lasting durability. The device features easy-to-install wire lead termination and can be paired with Leviton’s horizontal or vertical While-In-Use (WIU) Outdoor Covers to meet the requirements of NEC 406.9B.
The two USB ports deliver a combined total of 5.1A charging current and 25-plus watts of power; the USB Type-C port provides faster charging. A smart chip recognizes and optimizes the charging requirements of individual devices.
The Leviton Type A/C USB Weather-Resistant Charger/Receptacle is weather-resistant rated to provide added protection against corrosion, UV degradation, and exposure to outdoor elements. The receptacle is also tamper-resistant to help prevent access to the contacts by most non-rated or foreign objects and is available in 15A and 20A models.
