RE: Amperage available at an outlet?

If you take apart the 20A and 15A outlet, you will see that the contacts and the electrical connections inside is the same, only the the cover and body are changed so it can be made into 15A or 20A with the T-BAR for the neutral side. We buy the outlets by the thousand from Hubble, Eagle, Cooper, and get to talk to the rep and the engineers about how they are made and whom they supply to those company that sells $50 outlets.
