Spotted a huge shelf of these now knocked down to just 87p.

Hope image works, appologies if not. Still £15 on line via the following link:-

Got something similar a few months ago.

Plugged a 4 way socket and use this for the computer, printer, router etc

End of the day, it's easy to turn everything off, rather than having to climb through the computer desk to reach the plug.

Not much energy saved, but feels better having everything off overnight.

Good spot

Some of these standby savers actually use more power themselves, than the items you've got plugged in to them.

And with many costing £15 (or more) each, it would take 10 - 15 years before you saved a penny!

Yes, I preffer to turn things off myself but I guess it works for some people, you just need the right situation. It actually annoyed me, not only with this one but the Freeby EON one we got as neither actually state their consumption, which I thought they had to?. My plug-in monitor only has a resolution of 1W so no point in checking them with that either!!

The thing that I find most useful about these is to use them to turn things off that don't have remotes, if there is sch a thing these days;)

Good for you mate. Thats what this country needs is guys like yourself who take a risk to make a profit. They are only jealous because they cant afford to splash out on all that stock themselves

Found it in Tesco Brislington today before reading this post and it was on offer at £3.50. So, 87p deal is not nation wide.

Was this on the lable or did you check it on the price checker? Our Tesco had only just put the lable out and there were loads of other things that were reduced further without lable confirmation.
wonkydonky cleared 2 Tesco's out so its definitely not just ours. If you work it out they have applied the 75% reduction twice which they do from time to time.

Just get an energy monitor from Maplins or other retailer. plug your appliance into it and see how many watts it draws. You will be surprised at some of the results, even in standby some items draw a fair old bit of power. Remember an item may only draw 20 watts in standby but times that by 24 hours etc and it soon adds up. I used to have a pc running 24/7 at over 230 watts. as many do, add that up

Yes! it had a discount label suggesting that it has been reduced from original price to £3.50. If it would be 87p then i must not have missed it.

Think this is the same item
https://www.freegreengadgets.co.uk/web/guest;jsessionid=B8F83E0D2760C26E8CCAF7AF652CBA8C

This is free, problem is you'll have to wait, i've just received one, basically your remote that turns off the t.v. can turn off all your other boxes too.
Beware not to connect to you sky+ or v+ as it won't record then

Thought this was good for free.....ideal for the kids with T.V. and gaming console / dvd etc.

I've posted a new deal (should be in Freebies)
