These are the pull chain lights. I would have atleast 1 of those probably 2 in my shed. I would have 1 exterior and 1 interior recepticle. All that would run off a 20 amp breaker. Then I would pull out my 40 amp breaker and replace it with a 20 amp. What I was hoping I could do is run everything I said above in a single 20 amp breaker. I wouldnt have the compressor (which is in my garage) up and running and also be using power tools out in the shed all at the same time anyways. But if I was to have it all on 1 20 amp breaker and I was using my compressor along with say a saw and powering something else along with having the lights turned on in the shed, it would just trip the breaker if it went over 20 amps correct? But as long as I dont use anything else while the compressor is up and running, I would be ok?

Like I said, you can have as many receptacles as you want on a circuit. Receptacles draw no power, what you plug into them does. You have to regulate what you plug in.

I'm still confused, are you trying to use the compressor on the same circuit that you shed is on? I asked what country you are in. I'd like to know more about this compressor that requires a 25A circuit.
