Leviton Manufacturing Co. today introduced its new USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Duplex Receptacle offering two high-powered USB Ports with 3.6A of charging power and two 15A or 20A/125V Tamper-Resistant Receptacles.

Strategically designed with two vertical USB Ports, the Leviton USB Charger/Tamper-Resistant Duplex Receptacle provides additional space for maneuvering of charging cords.
