****Beware 12 amp limit ******

I Was looking for smart plug. TpLink has been solid for me. For electricy, I prefer brand name with certification. Add cheap article for 35$ free shipping.
Single one for 19.99$ also.

What's difference between this "Lite" one and the normal one they've had before? Looks exactly the same. and same price too from last sale.

15 amps , while the HS103 (lite) does 12 amps.

Edit 12 instead of 10amp.

Looks like the primary difference is there's a 12 amp limit with the lite, so it can't be used with high power draw devices.

I can understand that it makes the switch more compact and cheaper to limit current to 10 amps, but I have to think that this is dangerous. It should have a big label on it saying something like "10 AMPS LIMIT". People expect a pass-through plug to handle 15 amps in Canada. Sure, anyone reasonably knowledgeable would know to check the capacity of electronic plugs, but is everyone in your household or any future household who inherits it going to know about the limit?

Maybe the CSA should be imposing a standard like "unpolarized 2-prong plug only" on plugs that can't handle 15 amps, same as they limit extension cords that can't handle a higher current.

I could actually hit that 1200W limit if I plugged a heater into a power bar.
