More and more new devices, the iPhone 11 Pros included, come with cables that are USB type C at at least 1 end. This may confer an improvement in terms of charging times. To this end, Leviton has included 2 of the requisite ports in its latest duplex wall socket product. They may upgrade and update domestic or business fittings considerably.
These direct type-C outputs are also USB-PD, which means they have a dedicated smart chip that controls their maximal 30W charging. The use of one port on the new Leviton outlet can charge at either 15VDC/2A/30W or 9VDC/3A/27W, provided, that the device in question is also PD-compatible. Non-USB-PD devices will charge at 5VDC/3A/15W. On the other hand, using both ports at once cuts the charging down to 5VDC/3A.
Otherwise, the new product (also known as the T5635) is a conventional 15A-125V grounded wall socket with a Decora tamper-resistant build. It has a thermoplastic body and cover, as well as steel mounting straps. This new fitting comes in black, brown, ivory, gray or white and can be ordered through Leviton dealers or resellers.
