September 25, 2018 — Leviton has added the Type A and Type-C USB charger/tamper resistant receptacle to its line of USB charger devices.

The chargers offer two high-powered veridical USB ports, one Type A and one Type-C, delivering a combined total of 5.1A and over 25W, along with two additional tamper resistant receptacles.

The Type-C port within the receptacle provides up to 59% faster charging power, Leviton says. Engineered with smart chip technology, the device recognizes and optimizes the charging requirements of individual devices for faster charging. Both the Leviton Type A and Type-C devices deliver “faster, more powerful charging” the company says.
