Leviton, a renowned provider of wireless smart home technology and electrical wiring devices, has recently introduced its latest innovation, the 60W Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery (PD) USB Charger Receptacle. This cutting-edge device is available in both 15A and 20A models and offers remarkable features for efficient and high-speed charging.
While not technically “smart”, outlets like this are great in areas where you would typically charge devices. I have a couple of the USB-A versions, in the kitchen, next to a favorite chair. They are very convenient to have and makes it so you don’t need to look for a wall plug to charge your devices.
One of the standout features of the Leviton Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery USB Charger Receptacle is its ability to deliver up to 50 watts of power on its single Type-C port. When paired with PD-enabled devices, it can provide up to 2X the charging power, ensuring a quick and reliable charging experience.
William Randall, the director of product management at Leviton Residential, highlighted the significance of Power Delivery technology, stating, “Power Delivery supplies a higher level of power than standard charging offers. As a leader in electrical innovation, Leviton is expertly positioned to bring this technology to our customers to meet their evolving charging needs for both home and business.”
To ensure the safety of connected devices, the Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery USB Charger Receptacle features smart chip technology. This technology recognizes and optimizes the charging process for each device, preventing overcharging and potential damage to electronics. Additionally, built-in overcurrent protection safeguards against excessive power flow, while an internal thermo regulator prevents overheating, guaranteeing safe and reliable performance.
With a total power output of 60 watts, this receptacle is an ideal solution for charging PD-enabled smartphones, tablets, laptops, and more. It also supports Type A devices, providing versatility for various charging needs. The receptacle’s shallow profile allows for easy installation, replacing a standard receptacle with a convenient and powerful upgrade.
Leviton’s commitment to quality is evident in the durability of their Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery USB Charger Receptacle. The USB ports are tested to withstand over 10,000 insertions, ensuring long-lasting functionality. Furthermore, the receptacles are tamper-resistant, preventing access by most non-rated or foreign objects.
This versatile product is suitable for both residential and commercial applications. It can be installed in kitchens, bedrooms, home offices, college dormitories, airport lounges, hospitals, salons and spas, hotels, meeting rooms, cafes, restaurants, and more. The receptacle is currently available in white and comes with a 2-year limited warranty. It is also compatible with Leviton’s complete line of Decora® wiring devices, Decora wallplates, and Decora Plus™ screwless wallplates.
