This is my first ever post so here goes-

This is certainly a LOT Cheaper than the RADIPLUG 3 pack mentioned in an earlier post.

Just ordered 2 packs of Remote Control Plugs from Lakeland.
They have the 2 pack with remote available reduced from £18.99 to £8.99.
Also additional single plugs at £2.99 each (usually £7.99)

Use it in conjunction with the Lakeland DISCOUNT CODE - DW1 and save £10 on an order over £25. Postage is £3.95 but spend over £45 and get it free also.

I ordered £29.38 of sale items (saving an immediate £36.00 on the usual price) and then a further £10.00 with the voucher, plus 4% discount using Quidco, equaling a Total spend of £22.37 (inc £3.95 postage) for £65.38 of goods.

Have included a link, but don't know yet how to show an image - apologies if it's not right.

Hope this is helpful !

4% quidco too, nice find.

Very Very nice find indeed it's just aswell as i came on to this forum when i woke up there, as i was just about to buy "bye bye standby" lol as our electric bill came in and since i use the most power in the house i thought it would be a good buy.

Just bought 3 packs which is 3 remotes and 6 plugs lol wonder will they interfere tho as what i got in mind is 1 for downstairs router as the parents hate it lying on day and night, one for my new tv as its the big toshiba 42" i got off here on xmas day aswell as all my other stuff then the rest for my computer stuff lol.

Should improve the electric bill aswell as shut the parents up lol.

Im deffitly giving this heat since i paid £20.92 for 3 of these which would have normally cost about £30 delivered and on the plus factor im in northern ireland, plus i would have been paying £20 for bye bye standby and its 1 remote and 3 plugs but it works out ive saved myself £20 plus postage charges getting 3 of these.

Order waiting confirmation hopefully should say confirmed soon plus i used quidcos 4% just waiting for it to track.

Aren't you better off with these?

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128035

17p cheaper and you get an extra socket per pack, and they dim too!
#4
they would be better except for the problem with ebuyer charging £10.99 delivery to northern ireland
#5
These look good, I just wanted to say I have used Lakeland a few times recently, using the £10 code and I cannot fault their customer service and delivery times. I ordered something on Friday 21 December, not expecting it to arrive in time for Xmas, but it arrived early on the Monda y morning, Xmas Eve. This was just a standard delivery item.
They e-mail a recepit of order and then let you know when the item has been dispatched. Also great on the telephone for queries.
#6
Are these directional? Can you control each socket separately? Or do they all switch on and off simultaneously (if within range)?

If you look at the picutre, each remote control can work 8 sockets independantely.

Makes me laugh when I read people saying that it will save them a fortune on standby electric. Don't forget that if you use this on your telly plug, your telly can now be switched completely off, but the remote controlled socket is now on standby (instead of the telly) ready to receive a signal. How else do you think it is powered?

This is a great product at a great price for controlling devices, but not for power saving (unless your device has a really high current draw on standby. I have a 42" LCD which draws less than 1W on standby)

If my TV is on standby for an average of 18 hours a day, it costs about 36 pence per year to keep it on standby !

Just be aware guys.

so what was all that stuff on TV about our 'Carbon Footprint', telling us that TVs on standby use over half the electricity of the same TV turned on.

Yeah, i've seen all that myself and it's very frustrating. They are telling you lies, I don't know why, but they are.

If you look in the instruction manual that comes with your TV, on the specs page it will give you the power consumption with the TV on and in standby mode. My Toshiba 42" consumes less than 1W in standby and 250W when switched on.. Have also looked at two other TV manuals and they are the same, less than 1W in standby.

These TV scare-mongering tree hugging hippies really get on my nerves sometimes. If you completely exaggerate the facts, you loose credibilty.

They are not telling lies most TV's do use a lot of power on standby, as this is now such an issue a lot of modern TV's have sorted out this issue, Toshiba is very good (at power control not making LCDs):

eg
Regza:
Power consumption Model
32 164W
37 199W
42 260W
Standby (approx.) Model
32 <1W
37 <1W
42 <1W

For you to make out its "lies" is even more misleading and an even bigger exaggeration of the facts than your so-called "scare-mongering tree hugging hippies".
#21
It's definitely not true that TVs use over or anywhere near half the amount of power on standby when compared to when they're on!

While older TVs used as much as 3-5W in standby, current TVs have been developed to use a lot less due to the push on energy saving. Saying that though, who only has one electronic device along with their TV? I'll bet most have at least a DVD player, console, Sky/Virgin box, VCR or something else on the same socket/adapter. This device in standby would use a lot less power than several of them in standby.

I have a rather large AV set-up which includes a couple of amps, TV, DVD player, CD player, active subwoofer etc. Using my wattage meter I found the whole lot used over 15W in standby mode. My PC uses around 5W in standby. A few of my devices use charging cradles though.
#22
Of course if Virgin would sort out there updates & EPG updating to actually work when I switched my box on I wouldn't need to leave it switched on ALL THE TIME, and then these would be useful :p
#23
The worst offenders are satellite boxes (Sky is one of them) as it needs to provide power to LNB. Personally I think that the whole "bye-bye standby" issue is grossly exagerrated. BTW, these things got active RF receiver (and sometimes LED indicators too), so it take some amount of power too (not much, I guess - it should be in mW).

Saying all that, I have 2 kits of RF sockets - very useful for turning on/off christmas lights around the house :)
#24
We had an initiative at work to try and power down PC's at night.

When I worked out the costs of running 1 server or PC on full tilt to turn off several hundred PCs in standby (via script/code), the 1 server/PC blew the power consumption of the standby PCs out of the water.

The PC LCDs use < 1W, but to all intents and purposes its zero.
The PCs themselves in sleep mode 3 use roughly 0.5 kWh over 24 hours, almost nothing.

Not sure why Kudos and Johnny Scott shot you down Tonikeys, as you are right.
TV sensationalism and misinformation doesn't help build credibility and makes humans cynical and non believers, and therefore non doers about their energy consumption.

My Mrs is always cold and got the heating on almost 24/7, just by eliminating her could make the TVs on standby a non issue for the whole country. If a hotdeal comes up for a Colt 45, let me know.
#25
It's true that this device uses power but a lot less than several devices in standby would if you're using it for your main entertainment system.

This device will save energy in most scenarios but it would be a long time before it paid for itself in electricity bill savings so it shouldn't really be thought of as a money saver.
#26
OK, i've tried to offer some hard facts about how leaving a TV on standby for a whole year will cost you pennies, not a small fortune as some people will have you believe. I'm sure that MOST TV use less than 1W to a couple watts on standby. If anyone has any proof to the contrary, i'd love to hear it, otherwise stop offering an opinion without any information as to how you have based your so called "facts".

For you information, based on standby for 18hrs per day, each 1/2 Watt will cost you approx 30 pence per year.

For anyone who syas "no, you are wrong", would you kindly tell me how? I'm happy to be corrected.

Oh and hwangeruk, thanks for your voice of sanity.

kudos1uk, like I said, i'm happy to be corrected. Could you show me some evidence that "MOST" tv's use a lot of power in standby?

I've just done a quick search on several TV's, and they all use 1W or less.

Over to you kudos1uk.
#30
Getting back on to he topic of the remote control devices themselves does anyone know if the versions sold by Lakeland need to be pointed directly at the plugs like a normal TV remote or whether you simply need to be in range of the plug ... if so what range would these operate at ... 1m, 5m, 10m, 50m

Kudos1, the only figures you provided disproved your argument. I have a wattage meter to measure the power draw from an AC device and I've measured these kind of things because they interest me. I have a genuine interest in power saving. Have you checked these things for yourself?

Think logically. Hypothetical situation here: a TV switched on uses 200W to output an image (whether it's firing electrons in a CRT, gases in a Plasma or turning on and off spots on an LCD), generate sound and there's also energy lost as heat. Right? So you're arguing that a TV can use half this (100W) to do nothing but sit there with perhaps a little red LED on and a receiver waiting for an IR signal from the remote? That's, quite frankly, ludicris.
#32
I think Kudos' silence speaks volumes.....lol.
#33
He/She could just be away from the PC/Forums.

Not wanting to argue the point without checking it out for myself, I just fired up my old Sony 28" CRT (around 5 years old) with the wattage meter I bought from Maplins hooked up between it and the wall outlet. It uses 12W on standby. I'll happily admit that I expected this to be a bit less, around half in fact. However, it's a far cry short of the claimed half of the power the TV consumes when powered up, which is around 110W btw.

As I said I am energy concious and 12W over a long period is worth doing something about i.e. switching it off at the mains at night, as I did when it was in use. But false claims are not going to encourage me. My main TV is now a Toshiba 32" LCD and it uses 1W* in standby and fluctuates around the 80W mark in use.

* Rounded to the nearest unit as the wattage meter doesn't do decimal places.

Your big problem is your inability to understand how to mount a challenge to public perception.

Public perception is that older TV's (not modern like yours), the once the majority of people have, use a lot of power on standby. If you want to challenge this perception YOU need to provide evidence, until your able to substantiate your argument I will stick to what we have been lead to belive...OK.

Awaiting your reserch......

I could use this on my fridge/freezer and save a fortune! :-D

Seriously though, both these and Ebuyers ones are a great price, not only can they potentially save you a few pennies they also mean you can walk into your house and fire things up whilst you are kicking your shoes off. Handy if you have energy saving bulbs in your side lamps as they take a few seconds to warm up.

People used to believe the world was square you know. ;)

Seriously though, it's quite an interesting discussion. I've done a quick look around my house using the maplin meter and my 6yr old 32" Philips TV uses 15w on standby. I tried it on a friends Toshiba video recorder and it was using 21w. I used to be an ISO14001 auditer for my old company and we had a big push on switching off CRT's. Hundreds got switched off each night and it made only the tiniest of difference to company bill. To suggest that the majority of them use up to 50% is barking, that amount of power would cause quite a bit of heat to need to be dissapated so it would be noticeable if true. It's not beyond the realm of possibility that maybe a worst case Matsui unit or something was taken and did use that amount and then somehow it became the norm but ultimately it is massively overstating the truth. They'd be much better off recommending people boil only the water they need in a kettle and refilling immediately after so at least a bit of the left over heat can soak into the new water.

OK, this is really getting boring now. I can not continue a discussion with someone who is not receptive to any facts offered to him be it from the internet or other people on this forum. As you can see by my post count, i'm not the kind of person who posts with any regularirty so I will now leave this thread never to return. I hope you have a happy future because they do say that ignorance is bliss.

I will not even check in on this thread again so any comments like "he's stopped posting because he is wrong" will not wash, it's just that i've never revisited this thread.

I will now continue with the rest of my life. Feel free to continue to attept to discredit me.

Good, dont forget to turn the light off on your way out :thumbsup:

btw dont buy:
Sharp LC-37D90U (40.04W on standby)
Sharp LC-65D90U (76.11W on standby)
Westinghouse LTV-32w3 (30.76W on standby)
Mitsubishi WD-62628 (50.88W on standby)

Hmm not sure there mate...my dad was away recently and his electric ran out while i was looking over his house (pre-pay meter) so i topped it up with £10, it was 4 quid in debt so it gave me £6 of credit, nothing else was on in the house exept the tv on stand by, i thought that surely it cant use much electricity, 1 week later the £6 had ran out, there was NOTHING else using electricity in the house at the time.
