Functionally though... Does it make a significant difference getting the 12A vs 15A? Just trying to justify if one should keep the 12A...

U prob need 15amp if u need to run this smart plug on portable heater, coffee machine, hot water boiler, hair dryer...Those kind of appliances that will draw significant amount of electricity to serve its purpose.

I got two packs of 12a also. Better than 10 and I can use these for lighter loads no where near 10 or 12a.

I managed to get these working well locally in home assistant. I added them to the Kasa app and once I added it asked me to update firmware, which I did not do. Then I changed a firewall rule that I created for the plug MAC address from access wan to deny. It doesn’t work via the Kasa app without internet access, but I can get it in home assistant by adding then ip as a switch in my config file. I can use it locally and with internet blocked don’t have to worry about them updating my firmware remotely and killing my HA integration.

If they didn’t work in ha then I would be returning them but I’m happy for the price!
