Leviton has introduced its new SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI Combination USB Type A/Type C In-Wall Charger. The device combines ground-fault protection with two high-powered USB ports—one Type A port and one Type C port—to deliver maximum power for faster charging.

“With two leading technologies in a single unit, our new GFCI Combination USB Type A/Type C In-Wall Charger offers a convenient and space-saving way to add a powerful USB charging station to areas of the home that require GFCI protection by the National Electrical Code, including kitchens and bathrooms,” says William Randall, director of product management, Leviton. “Every Leviton USB In-Wall Charger features a smart chip that recognizes and optimizes the charging requirements of the connected device—ensuring devices charge fast and efficiently.”

The 4.8-amp USB offers 24 watts of total power. Overcurrent protection on the two USB ports helps protect electronics from receiving too much power, which can damage devices. It is compatible with USB 3.1, 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1 devices.

As with Leviton’s full line of GFCIs, this model is engineered to meet the latest standard for auto-monitoring by periodically conducting an automatic internal test to confirm that protected power is available. If the GFCI detects a problem, power will be denied, the outlet will trip with the ability to reset, or there will be visual and/or audible indication. For additional safety, the outlets feature tamper-resistant shutters.

The in-wall charger is available in 15-amp and 20-amp models, and is compatible with Decora and Decora Plus screwless wallplates.
