WR Rated GFCI Receptacle


Cooper has these WR rated, perhaps it is a new requirement for GFCIs? I'm installing two in a shed outdoors, dry location (I hope), I wonder if anything gained from using the WR rated, versus the plain.

Also Arrow Hart GFIs seem to be very cheap, should these be avoided in favor of Cooper branded such as the VGF20W?

WR Rated GFCI Receptacle


Receptacles installed outdoors (as of 2008 I think) now must be weather-resistant.

Cool. I'll swap my existing non-WR outdoor GFI receptacles with these WRs and use the non-WR indoors.
