Leviton is releasing its new 60W Dual Type A and Type-C Power Deliver 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, the Melville, N.Y.-based wireless smart home technology manufacturer says.
According to Leviton, 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.
Levion says receptacle’s 60 watts of power offers the ideal solution for charging PD-enabled smartphones – including the new iPhone 15, tablets, laptops, and more, as well as Type A devices.
The new receptable can replace a standard receptacle for a convenient and powerful upgrade, and 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, the company says. It is compatible with USB 3.1,3.0, 2.0 and 1.1 devices.
Leviton’s new Dual Type A and Type-C with Power Delivery USB Charger Receptacles are designed for residential and commercial applications including kitchens, bedrooms, home offices, college dormitories, airport lounges, hospitals, salons and spas, hotels, meeting rooms, cafes, restaurants and more.
“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,” says William Randall, director of product management for Leviton Residential. “Leviton USB Chargers with Power Delivery are the safe and reliable choice for efficiently charging devices with higher power requirements.”
