these must require a constunt supply of energy, anyone disprove? :thinking:
#10
Yeah they'll use energy. Don't think they are being marketed as "Green" though. It might not be very much of course in which case it could save more energy than n devices on standby plugged into a multi-socket if you can't switch it off at the wall by hand.
Manufacturing the device, batteries for the remote and shipping it halfway round the world will all add up if you're concerned about carbon footprints etc. I'd buy it for convenience rather than heroism.

Have got two of these so far and they are magic! There were a few left at the Glasgow Fort yesterday.

Brainwashed into saving the planet but can't spell 'constant'.
Also, it's 'disapprove', not 'disprove'.

'Disprove means to prove that something thought to be correct, isn't actually true.
'Disapprove' is what you mean. That means to not approve of something.

Welcome to the new world order.

I got these before and are a total bargain. The range of the remote is very good and goes through glass... Used them for my outside christmas lights... Not more going outside to turn them off! :)

You'll be hard pushed to find a set as they sell like hotcakes

We just use a normal timer switch - then you don't need to bother about turning them on and off yourself.

Apart from that being a patronizing reply to somebody, you got it wrong, which is amusing!

He wasn't asking if anyone disapproved - he was asking if anyone could disprove (i.e. prove incorrect) his assertion that they used energy.

No, I don't agree, and I did consider what I wrote before posting it.

Of course they use energy. They couldn't operate otherwise.
I stand by my belief that he was asking whether people disapproved of them.

He still can't spell 'constant', and he's still pandering to the eco-nutters. You really have to be some kind of nut if you think that using a few milliwatts of power to control these devices is in any way helping the planet.

Whether you agree or not, you're still wrong. He was asking people to disprove his assumption. And even if he wasn't, your arrogant response will mean he will "disprove" you, and say that was what he meant, whether it's true or not.

Also, whether or not you think it will help the planet is irrelevant. If he thinks it will, or if it's making him feel good that he is at least trying, who are you to bytch about it?

As for the speling corection, wel we're all so verry sory teacher - please don't give us an 'F'... (See what I did there??)

BTW - good deal. :) Might think about it! :D

Rainey!!

I'm not sure whats more childish - picking up on someones spelling, or having to sully every single electrical deal with the green brigade.

The deal is posted and is hot - its a personal decision whether someone feels they are "green" enough.

Or maybe the poster is thinking about their pocket... ie will it still be costing them money.

I have a plug in electricity meter that displays how much power a plugged in appliance is consuming. The lowest it measures is 1 watt.

My friend borrowed my electricity meter to measure how much power his remote controlled sockets use. They use less than 1 watt. They're just a radio receiver. Radios (excluding DAB radios) don't use much power.

My computer uses 9 watts when it's switched off! That equates to roughly £10 a year. My TV/DVD/PVR use around 24 watts in total when switched off. The plugs aren't easily accessible. These remote controlled sockets allow you to turn off these appliances easily with one button.

Back to my friend: He has his remote controlled sockets plugged in in the kids rooms and downstairs in the living room to switch off the TVs and computers. When he gets in bed he switches EVERYTHING off with one button. He reckons it saves him about £35 per year.

Regardless of the ecological/planet saving issue, these devices can save you money. That is what "m27try" was really asking.

And, like other posters, I believe he meant to use the word "disprove"

Face it, you mucked up. Being a smart ass you made yourself look like an ass. If you've nothing constructive to say, go back to your sad little existence.

Back on topic, seem like good devices, and undoubtedly a hot price. Cheers OP.

I do wish people wouldn't use the message boards so negatively. (ooops - slight oxymoron)

It would be so much more useful to be able to read people's opinions on the deal / product without having to trawl through petty tittle-tattle (which I know I am now adding to).

Let's all play nicely.

Bought a similar RC 3xsocket thing from eBay recently for £12 - I thought that was a bargain, this is scorching. :thumbsup:

I have mine on the TV/DVD socket which are hard to reach the sockets, and for convenience I've connected to a table lamp so that we can hide the cable out of the way, and now the Xmas tree lights are on one. At the end of the night its very satisfying to just hit the RC to knock off the appliances in the room.

I've not measured the standy usage on these, but as mentioned earlier in the thread, it has a radio receiver which uses small amounts of power, so Eco-nutters might want to use Mark 1 Index finger on the socket switches.

what section can these be found in Asda?

Asda Livingston had a pile on the shelf priced at £15, asked a girl to scan it and it came up at £5, bought a pack along with a Carbon Monoxide Detector which was reduced to £10.

They were located near the light bulbs

Just bought one in South Woodham Ferrers. £15 on shelf label but came up as £5 at the checkout.
Thanks
p.s. why has this been expired?
#37
Just got some. Build quality seems reasonable. 3 Sockets per pack.
Remote uses an unusual 12V L1028 23A lighter-type battery (supplied).
Four pairs of on and off buttons plus an "all off" button. Each on/off pair can be assigned to one or more sockets. In other words you can turn several devices on or off with just one pair of buttons. You "teach" the remote which socket is assigned to which buttons (can also unlearn). Claimed more than one million codes means you can get more than one set and not end up turning the wrong device off (or your neighbour's!).
When the socket isn't plugged into live mains it "forgets" its button assignment and has to be re-learned.
Each socket rated 2900W Max. Remote uses 433.92 MHz RF.

Got one in Huddersfield, still a few left cos shelf edge label says £15, but scans at £5.
