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 a heavy duty demolition hammer to it right? It is going through the lighting fixture's wiring and components. Can you put this on an exterior wall sconce and hook up 100' of Christmas lights?

The biggest thing you can only use twp prong devices in them. There is no ground.
