I bought a Leviton T5632-W USB outlet for an outlet in my kitchen where we normally charge our USB devices on a shelf. The electronics in the newer outlets and switches don't leave you much room to work and in this case it wouldn't fit into the original metal box. The wire coming in is MX so I couldn't use a plastic box (which I already know fits the Leviton T5632-W) so my first thought was that the old metal box must have been smaller than the current code. I guess not, because it still doesn't fit in the new one and foolish me already cut the mounting nails on the old one. Now I either have to tear out the MX cable and replace it with romex or find a metal old work box that can accomodate the circuitry in the USB outlet.

You can use either a 570RAC (2-3/4” deep) or a 600 (3-1/2” deep) box, and Read More
