Advice needed with installing an LCDI plug

Is there anything special about installing a Leakage-Current Detection and Interruption plug? Is it OK to replace a typical 15 amp, 110 volt receptacle with an LCDI receptacle?

LCDI is normally part of the plug on a power cord rather than in a receptacle device. Can you tell us specifically what LCDI device you are considering?

Installing a LCDI plug

The device is a portable air conditioner that has a LCDI plug. I've never seen one before. Will this fit in a typical 110v receptacle?

It should fit into a standard receptacle. Does it look like it does? Is it a 15-amp or a 20-amp A/C? Is it a 120-volt or a 240-volt A/C?

There are no special receptacles for LCDI plugs. But there are special receptacles (and special circuits to match) for 20-amp and/or 240-volt appliances.
