Nice! What does "T" mean after 5 amps?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Thanks! As for the "T", I have no clue, maybe the type of load?

The box of my Leviton combination device says "T-Rated" on it. Maybe it could mean that? I have no clue what "T-Rated" means though.

Why does the switch need a special rating for filament lamps? I wondered what the "T-Rated" meant on all my vintage switch cartons as well.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.
