  • On/Off outlet Maximum Load specs clarification

    In the product manual, the maximum load is stated as: 600W Incandescent
    15A All Other Loads

    Can anybody clarify why Incandescent is limited to only 600W?

    I'm trying to figure out if I can plug in a 1500W Portable Oil-Filled Radiator.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Incandescent bulbs have a very large current surge when they first are turned On and the filament is cold.
    A 1500 watt Portable Oil-Filled Radiator is a resistive load. 15 Amps X 120 Volts is 1800 watts. It should be fine.
