    Hi. I have an extension power bar with MCOV (Max Continuous Operating Voltage) of 120 V. And then it says I(n) = 3kA.

    What does I(n) mean? Current for any application?

    I assume it means 3000 Amps.

    I have an electric stove rated 1500 Watts.

    So, it should be fine right?

    I took 1500 Watts, divide that by 120 V = around 12.5 Amps.

    Is my reasoning correct?
