Any Issues with Using Wago Lever-Nuts?

I was considering using Ideal Push-in connectors when I found Wago Lever-Nuts. They look like a good alternative, but I have no experience with them. I am not sure if I'm allowed to post a link, but here is more information: Wago Lever-Nuts. I like the fact that they make it easy to remove and add connections. It sounds like the Push-in connectors are much more difficult to modify. Are the Lever-Nuts permissible by NEC code? Is one preferable to the other? Has anyone used them? I have a lot of 12 gauge cable in my home, and I sometimes have difficulty with wire nuts. It seems like these would help to ensure a strong/safe connection. I appreciate any input.

They are allowed by code because they are UL listed for the number and types of wire specified on the package; they are now widely used in the industry; and, to my knowledge there is not currently any data to suggest they are less safe or reliable than wire nuts, however they have not been on the market as long.
