#109718 - Actually I beg to differ
Responding to: Steve M. Taylor's previous message
That's my point - current and resistance do not characterise a pot.

Actually I beg to differ

A 1W pot can handle 1W when connected as a resistor, but if you apply 1W from the arm, you can easily burn it.

A 1A pot can handle 1A from the arm regardless of the position.
