Light Socket Outlet Adapter

I have a question regarding those light socket adapter that allow you to screw into a light socket and added an inline switched outlet in the process.

What are some of the things to watch out for when using an outlet like this? Is there some sort of wattage restriction on what you can plug into it? I am thinking you can’t plug in anything “heavy duty” to it because it is going through the lighting fixture’s wiring and components.

Can you put this on an exterior wall sconce and hook up say a string of Christmas lights?

Also it does not have ground.
