Leviton, a leading provider of wireless smart home technology and electrical wiring devices, today announced its 60W Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery (PD) USB Charger Receptacle, available in 15A and 20A models. The device delivers up to 50 watts of power on its single Type-C port and offers up to 2X the charging power when paired with PD-enabled devices for high-speed, efficient charging.
“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,” said William Randall, director of product management, Leviton Residential. “Leviton USB Chargers with Power Delivery are the safe and reliable choice for efficiently charging devices with higher power requirements.”
The Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery USB Charger Receptacle features smart chip technology which recognizes and optimizes charging of the connected device. Built-in overcurrent protection helps protect electronics from receiving too much power, which can damage them, and an internal thermo regulator prevents electronics from overheating for safe, reliable performance. With 60 watts of total power, the receptacle offers the ideal solution for charging PD-enabled smartphones – including the new iPhone® 15, tablets, laptops, and more, as well as Type A devices.
With its shallow profile, the Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery USB Charger Receptacle easily replaces a standard receptacle for a convenient and powerful upgrade. Its USB ports are tested to meet the industry requirement to withstand over 10,000 insertions and the receptacles are tamper-resistant to help prevent access by most non-rated or foreign objects. It is compatible with USB 3.1,3.0, 2.0 and 1.1 devices.
