With any other product you expect to be able to use the product safely and repeatedly to achieve the advertized performance.

If a lamp says it can take "up to a 60 W bulb", you expect to put a 60 W bulb in and leave the lamp on indefinetly without it catching fire.

If a PU truck says it can handle 1/2 ton, you expect to be able to carry 1/2 ton in it repeatedly without it breaking.

If ovenware says it's good for up to 400 degrees, you don't expect it to melt after a few uses at that temp.

If a MAGAZINE says a car can do 0-60 in 5.4 secs, then a manufacturer repeats it, specifying that it is the magazines #'s and still lists the cars performance at 6.4 sec 0-60... no wait, that's different for some reason.
Fixed it for you.
