In our increasingly connected world, where devices and appliances are integral to our daily lives, ensuring safety and convenience is paramount. Leviton, the most trusted name in electrical devices, has once again raised the bar with their innovative GUAC Combination Devices. These industry-leading devices integrate the safety of GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter) protection with the convenience of USB charging, delivering a comprehensive solution for modern homes.
GUAC Devices: Safety and Charging Reinvented
Leviton’s GUAC devices are available in two variations: the GUAC1 and GUAC2, offering 15A and 20A ratings respectively. While they differ in amperage, both devices share a common goal — to provide a safer and more efficient electrical experience. Let’s explore the myriad benefits these devices bring to your home:
1. Code-Compliant GFCI Protection: Safety First
GFCI protection is essential in areas where electrical safety is critical. Kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor outlets are prime examples. GUAC Combination Devices ensure your home complies with electrical safety codes. They automatically monitor your power supply, conducting self-tests to confirm the availability of safe, protected power. If a problem is detected, the device takes necessary action — either denying power, tripping, or providing visual and audible alerts. Your home’s electrical safety is never compromised.
2. Ultra-Fast USB Charging: Power at Your Fingertips
In our modern lives, the demand for convenient charging solutions is ever-increasing. Leviton understands this need, and the GUAC devices come equipped with powerful USB charging capabilities. Featuring 24W (4.8A) Type A/C USB ports, these devices can quickly charge your devices, eliminating the need for bulky adapters and saving you valuable time.
3. Ideal for Residential Applications: Versatility Meets Safety

They’re perfect for spaces like kitchens and bathrooms, offering comprehensive safety while providing USB charging convenience. Their tamper-resistant shutters meet NEC® 406.12 requirements, enhancing child protection.
4. Superior Technology: Self-Testing and Enhanced Immunity
Leviton’s GUAC devices feature self-test technology, ensuring they meet the latest UL standards for auto-monitoring. These devices conduct automatic internal tests to confirm the availability of protected power, going the extra mile to secure your home’s safety. They also exhibit improved immunity to high-frequency noise, reducing nuisance tripping and ensuring a reliable electrical experience.
