Mine caught on fire with a little 1500 watt space heater, and to compare, my hair dryer is 1875 watts (not plugged into a smart plug of course), so it doesn't take much for these to catch on fire. Be careful if you use anything in it larger than maybe a desk lamp in my opinion. I unplugged all 3 of my kasa smart plugs and won't use them anymore.

Rick is spot on, at 16 amps and 120v capacity you get 1800 watts so spaceheater, coffee pot, power strip with a few lamps you should be good to go.

1800W at 120VAC would be 15 Amps. Shawn D is correct; ignore the 16 Amp answers.

1800 watts which is equal to 15 Amps, not 16.

This are dangerous at 15 amps and on continuously. Do not use.

Ignore Kathleen for anyone who looks at questions. Her device caught fire because she was uneducated. You NEVER plug a space heater into anything other than the normal wall outlet. So of course it caught fire she was using it improperly. As for the actual question it’s 1800 watts (15 amps)
