The HS100 has the following electrical load specifications:

The HS100 has the following electrical load specifications:

nput voltage: 100 - 120VAC, 15A
Output voltage: 100 - 120VAC, 15A
Maximum Load: 15A
Maximum Power: 1.8KW

If your appliance operates within these specifications, the smart plug shouldn't have any issues. However, please note that the power draw/load of some appliances may spike during initial startup or operation. If said spikes exceed the Smart Plug's specifications, we would not recommend using the appliance.

PLEASE NOTE: If your appliance has a separate remote control, or if it does not automatically turn on when plugged into a power outlet, these characteristics will prevent the Smart Plug from effectively controlling the appliance's power state.

This unit is rated for a maximum of 1800 watts (15 amps at 120 volts).
Your air conditioner's labels or manuals should show you the maximum watts that it consumes, and if it's less than the values above you're good.
If you are plugging in multiple devices the sum of all devices must not exceed 1800 watts.

The room heater will cause the plug got hot and burn out since it is drawing constant high current!
Unlike the the air conditioner which only draw maximum power during startup and compressor are cycling on and off to prevent maximum current draw!

I plugged in a small room heater and the plug got hot and disconnected, when i unplugged it thentp link prongs were burning hot. So just plugged the heater back in and checked it 10 minutes later the outlet was fine. Tried a different outlet in the room and same thing. So i would say NO. If a small heater fan made the plug hot i would think an AC unit would also.

Depends on the controls and wattage of your ACs. Must not exceed 1,800 watts and make sure your AC will resume function after cutting power. Some ACs will just stay off if you apply power again. Also as for these other answers, there is a huge difference in the power draw/ efficiency of heaters and ACs. Never use a smart plug on a resistive heater load unless the plug is properly rated for that.

My a/c is small, installed in the wall, and has an on/off button up so high it requires I use a broom stick or a ladder to turn it on and off. If I buy this $30 wi-if plus, turn the a/c on manually the first time I use it, will it this device turn the a/c on and off? This a/c makes me think I’ve got tint dinosaur arms 🦖

We have two of these and use them for a window ac unit in our bedroom and a large, portable ac unit in our living room. After two hot summers of this, still have t had any issues.
