Leviton Introduces 20 Amp USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacle









MELVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton today expanded its industry-leading USB Charger Receptacle offering with a new 20 Amp version. The latest USB charging device from Leviton offers the same ground-breaking 2.1A of charging power as its 15A counterpart, but now features a 20A/125V Tamper-Resistant Receptacle, ideal for high-current devices, such as small kitchen appliances.

"Leviton's new 20 Amp USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacle demonstrates the company's commitment to expanding solutions to meet varying applications," explained William Randall, Leviton's Director of Product Management for Residential. "Understanding that many customers charge their USB devices in the kitchen, this latest device offers USB charging capabilities without sacrificing a receptacle necessary for safely powering appliances with larger loads."

The state-of-the-art device has the capability to charge two USB-powered electronic devices utilizing its two USB Ports, leaving the 20A Tamper-Resistant Receptacle free to power devices requiring higher currents. Leviton's USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacle is designed to charge tablets, smart and mobile phones, gaming devices, e-readers, digital cameras and a host of other electronic devices.

Leviton's entire USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacle line is strategically designed with two vertical USB Ports, providing additional space for maneuvering of charging cords and reducing stress on the cables while charging. The USB Ports are Type A, 2.0/3.0 and incorporate a smart chip which recognizes and optimizes the charging power of the device plugged in. It is engineered to fit in a standard wallbox, use a standard wallplate and can be multi-ganged with any standard Leviton wiring device.

With its contemporary and aesthetically pleasing design, the Leviton 20A/125V USB Charger/Tamper- Resistant Receptacle is perfect for both residential and light commercial applications, including kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, home offices, hospitals, hotels, college dorm rooms and any other location where both higher-current powering and USB charging is desired.

The device is 2011 NEC® compliant, certified to the applicable U.S. and Canadian Standards by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and comes with a five-year limited product warranty. The receptacle's shutter mechanism is designed to block access to the contacts from most foreign objects to improve safety. Available in White and Light Almond, the Leviton USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacle is compatible with Leviton's complete line of signature Decora ® wiring devices and wallplates, as well as Leviton's Mobile Device Station.

The 20A Leviton USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacle is now available through Leviton's network of retail and electrical distribution channels. For additional information on all of Leviton's USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Receptacles, visit www.leviton.com/usb.
