This article applies to:

All Tapo&Kasa plugs

The device load must Not Exceed the plug's power/current rating range specified in the below list. Otherwise, the relay contacts inside the plug will easily stick together, which may cause the plug to be unable to disconnect the power to the appliance.

Supported load types for the following models:

Tapo P110(UK) 1.0

Tapo P100(UK) 1.0/2.0

Tapo P105(UK) 1.0/2.0

Tapo P110M(UK) 1.0

KP105(UK) 1.0/2.0

KP115(UK) 1.0

Note:

  1. *Power Adapters/USB Chargers under 75W do not support PFC (Power Factor Correction), while PFC can reduce the inrush starting current generated at the moment the relay is turned on. Therefore, using a 60-75W Power Adapter/USB Charger may damage the device due to excessive current.
  2. Avoid plugging your appliances with a motor/compressor higher than 1/6HP, such as the air conditioner. Frequent switching may damage the compressor. You can check the motor/compressor value on your appliances or consult their Support.
  3. EV charging is not supported since it typically has a higher power and its charging current required exceeds the rated current of the plug.
  4. It's Not recommended that connect the plug to the power strip for powering on multiple load devices.
