    OK, just after I submitted the question, I continued to sleuth for an answer. I viewed the image of the switch and there on the plate near the power prongs was the information on amperage or current draw.

    So, the answer is 15 amps. Multiplying that number by the voltage provides the number of watts which the switch can handle.

  • The documentation says 1800 watts. That's 15 amps at 120 volts. That's about the same as most regular switches.

  • The contactor built into the WeMo is pretty wimpy.
    The weak point is its ability to OFF-switch under a heavy load.
    I suspect that the WeMo will not survive very many such events at say 200 watts or more.
    I'd love to see some test results.
    Hey, does anyone want to try a test?
    We could set up a betting pool. I'll bet on 20 OFF events at 200 watts.
