    Your timer should tell you the max number of watts they can handle, stay under that and you're fine.

    That screenshot may as well be written in Chinese 500 w is very low I think for most timers I would expect most timers to be able to handle double that. There are some differences between 230 v and 115 though, you'll likely have lower max wattages but you won't be drawing as many watts through each line.

    Buy a decent timer, not one of those cheap ones!
