These things are great! What it is - you plug your computer into the main slot on the socket, and plug your peripherals (printers, scanners etc.) into the other available sockets. Whenever you switch off your PC, the plug then automatically switches off those peripherals. The review states it can save you up to £100 per year in electricity charges for a typical home setup. ALSO it is a surge protector, protecting your valuable equipment from power surges. This is the lowest price around, and you get a few pence Quidco off too!

Yes, a schoolboy error...consider it fixed!

These things are great...I'm currently persuading my company to get these. Have yourself some rep!

One word of warning....some inkjet printers will splurge ink all over the place if you use these adapters. They need to close off the cartridges before powering off (something that automatically happens when you press the 'off' button on your printer.)

I plug an extension lead into mine with all the PC-only things connected, eg. printer, speakers, USB hub and monitor. Then I have a seperate extension lead plugged in elsewhere for the things I need on all of the time - like the wireless router. Could get round any inkjet problems by doing something like that.

I use these because so many peripherals require mains adapters adapters which sit there drawing power all the time even though my PC is switched off. My USB hubs, speakers, scanner and screen all have them and this switches them off.

I use a separate mains block for my phone, printer and PDA dock so that they stay on. My Canon IP4000R printer has an auto-power off mode and auto-power on too, and as it is a wireless networked printer, I use it with my laptop and my son's computer so it needs to stay powered.

Great price, the manufacturer, OneClick Technologies, charges £16.99 + £2.99 shipping.

[SIZE=2]The other benefit of this is that it completely stops any buzzing/humming noises from things like speaker sets, which they seem to make even when powered down! When my first one broke I found I couldn't cope without it so got one from JL :)[/SIZE]

Thanks for letting us know, marked as expired.

My concern with these is that people will over load the sockets. after all its only 13amps not really alot you can safely run on that. take a look at how much your prepirals use, you'll be surprised.

13A seems standard for extension blocks so as long as you don't link a whole network to it or such like, this shouldn't be an issue :)

I diagree with you, you should not exceed 13amps on any extention lead at all!
I've seen enough fires due to overloading of sockets.
This advice goes for all extention leads/multiple adapters
I just think these encourage overloading, at the end of the day how hard is flicking a switch or two?

True, but my point was that most extension blocks on the market are 13A as standard, so the advantage you have here is that power will only be provided when the PC is on (and presumably someone's sat using it), whereas a cheap overloaded extension block could develop a fault at a random time and create a hazard.
#14
I have an individually switch 6 way extension block and don't run more than 4 things at a time.

(Low powered things like : Freeview box ,LCD Monitor ,tuner box and lappy.)

OH S**** my mistake. It does not Ezxactually exist

I just think they promote irresponissible ocerloading and im just making the point to make people more aware of the dangers.
Be safe kids..........:thumbsup:
