These have been at this price for the last six months and have been posted on here many times.

Saw something similar in the Weymouth back at the start of the month. I had the last one, and it was £5 then too. Really useful thing to have

No wonder obesity is on the increase. Good deal though for those that need them.

There are fun for home automation, using microcontrollers hooked to your pc. The remote controls are quite easy to hook up, so you can turn things on and off with your computer. You can write little web services to do it from anywhere in the world.

Great price.

surely its this kind of tech that makes people lazier ... a bit of exercise no matter how simple it is can only be good for you

I appreciate there are some instances where there is a genuine need for the tech but to use the excuse of it takes too long to switch 3 sockets is a load of crap

Actually your comments are nothing to do with this being a hot deal - and the fact is there are a number of my friends who are in the unfortunate position not to be able to use their legs. And this type of tech is extremely useful.

Very useful for sockets hidden behind furniture. Even those un-lazy people would probably baulk at moving a wardrobe to switch off their sockets each night.
#15
got these a while back when they were posted on here ......one socket i needed to use them for is behind a large unit that i cant get into,and the other is behind a sideboard where the shelf runs level with the socket,so i cant plug one of these in......needless to say,theyre still sat in a box lol
#16
Why do you need to switch the sockets off each night? That what my Mother-in-Law does. Every bloody socket in the house including the Wireless Router, Cooker, TV. Ok, not the Fridge Freezer but given half a chance she would do. Is it a money saving exersise? Surely just turning off the applience is enough? Is it just an old peoples and OCD sufferers thing?

Routers use about ~10w depending on what your using, and other appliances typically use 1 to 5 watts in standby. 10 appliances in standby is the same as a 14" crt tv being on (50w). I've noticed my Sky box is notoriously hungry whilst in standby using 14w, presumably it's busy trying to phone home and whatever epg work/loading.
#19
Surely a Router will not use 10w when its not doing anything? Ie over night? And who has 10 items on stand by anyway? I can turn my TV off at the front of the unit.When you turn the Sky box off it takes ages to come back on-line again, is that really worth saving a few pence a year?

I can understand using this for hard to reach area's but I dont see the need to turn off the hard to reach sockets in the first place so why waste the money?

so i take it you manually controll your tv box/sky box/ cable box by walking over to it and kneeling down in front of it yeah? if not your lazy

this played havoc with the wireless internet and i had to change the radio settings on the modem so be warned

I thought I'd post more information regarding router power consumption, this site gives a rough idea >

By no means comprehensive. Other categories to check, could well be better / more accurate sites out there.

Just seems to be a list of submitted info. I tested my own appliances with a plug in meter. I have that same thomson router 585v7 and the reason why that result is low in comparision, is because the submitter turn off their wireless on theirs. Which is what I have done recently (because it is crap and causes the router to only last a day before rebooting itself).
