Our Take on the Leviton USB Charger/Tamper Resistant Outlet
Leviton USB Charger/Tamper Resistant Outlet is a great solution for those technology people who find plugging a USB cord into a base charger and into an outlet annoying or having more than one device plugged into the same outlet becomes a tangled mess. This device offers a sleek, technology driven design that is pleasing to the eye and allows users to plug their device’s USB cord directly into the outlet, providing faster, more effective charging. The Leviton USB Charger offers two USB outlets – one for low power such as phones and small devices and one for high power including large tablets and computers.
While this device is convenient, it does come with some flaws. Users need to be careful to plug devices into the proper port (there is an H on the high port) – if you plug your tablet or laptop into the low power port (on the left), it will indicate it is charging, but will hold no power. On the other hand, if you plug a phone or smaller device into the high power port (the port on the right) it will charge very quickly but leaving it on this charger could damage the device’s battery. Additionally, the device does have some lifespan issues and may need to be replaced after only a few short months of use – replacement will vary depending on how often the item is used.
