Leviton’s industry-leading GFCI protection now available with the benefit of powerful USB charging

Melville, N.Y., July 08, 2021 – Leviton today announced the introduction of its new SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI Combination Type A USB In-Wall Charger. This device combines the trusted ground-fault protection of Leviton GFCI technology with two Type A USB ports delivering maximum power for faster charging - up to 2X more power than competitive devices.

“With two leading technologies in a single unit, our new GFCI USB offers a convenient and space-saving way to add a USB charging station to areas of the home that require GFCI protection by the National Electrical Code® (NEC®), including kitchens and bathrooms,” said William Randall, director of product management, Leviton. “All Leviton USB In-Wall Chargers feature a smart chip which recognizes and optimizes the charging requirements of the connected device – ensuring each device charges fast and efficiently.”

As with Leviton’s full line of GFCIs, the SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI Combination USB In-Wall Charger is engineered to meet the latest UL standard for auto-monitoring (self-test) by periodically conducting an automatic internal test to confirm that protected power is available. If the GFCI detects a problem, one or more of the following will occur:

  • Power will be denied (trip with the inability to reset)
  • The outlet will trip with the ability to reset. This is subject to the next auto-monitoring test cycle or device will repeatedly trip
  • Visual and/or audible indication

For additional safety, the device outlets feature tamper-resistant shutters that meet NEC Article 406.12 requirements by blocking access to the contacts unless a two- or three-prong plug is inserted.

The 4.8A USB offers two high-powered charging ports with 24W of total power – more than twice the power of other competitive GFCI USBs. Overcurrent protection on the two USB ports help 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.

The SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI Combination Type A USB In-Wall Charger is available in 15A and 20A models, is compatible with Decora® and Decora Plus™ screwless wallplates and is backed by a 2-year limited warranty.
