    It goes without saying that a 5-20 outlet should be on the correct wiring/breaker, just like a 14-50 outlet should have the correct wiring/breaker. All outlets should have the correct wiring/breaker.

    Saying 120V is limited to 12 amps is not true since 16 amps is supported on 120V with a 5-20 outlet and adapter.

    Still wouldn't matter as it limits to 16 amps and that's also 16 amps...

    I don't know what you are trying to say. Of course 16 amps is 16 amps. Again, I'm just saying that 16 amps is possible on 120 Volts. It may not be the fastest but it is faster than 12 amps. The post indicating 12 Amps was the maximum possible on 120 Volts is incorrect.

    My point is my original post indicated this problem can't occur with 120V because you can't go over 16 amps. I incorrectly said it was 12 amps max. But either way the problem can't occur with 120V because of the lower amps.
