Does anyone know of a TR/WR rated USB charger receptacle for use in outdoor damp/wet locations?
I see a lot of them in standard TR, but so far havenít found any that are also WR.

I would worry more about the 5v power supply and that little USB-A connector than the 120v side.

Thanks for the replies. I was referring more to this type of device having the NEC required weather resistant WR rating, not as much about protecting it from weather. I could see these being requested for outdoor deck and patios. So far, I havenít been able to find any that have the WR rating for use in outdoor locations.
