I think so. It's a surge protector, it's not waiting to see 20 amps before it trips.
Is It OK to Use a 20amp Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Suppressor Instead of a 15amp?
I have my audio gear and TV plugged into a Tripp Lite 20amp surge protector. The powered speakers are plugged in separately to wall outlets. The circuit and wall outlets are 15amp. I’m sure I have less than 100watts plus the TV into the Tripp Lite. I bought a 20amp by mistake. Is this OK? If there ever was an overload the 15amp breaker at the box would trip first. I assume the 20amp would have heavier wiring than a 15 amp. I think the joule rating is the same for 15 or 20amp.
