This outlet is only a single outlet, but I would like to replace it with a double outlet in order to plug in my under cabinet lighting - I will be drilling small holes inside the cabinets to link the lights. How do I know if I need a 15-amp versus a 20-amp double outlet?? I intend on only using 3 to 5 lights...
If I use the lights that I have linked above, I will be using 3 lights with one kit or purchase two kits (3 lights/kit) but only use 5 lights versus 6.
My neighbor has a similar set up and he plugged his under cabinet lights into a small surge protector that is plugged into one of the receptacles of the double outlet inside the cabinet above the microwave oven; this is what I would like to do.
