Got something like this for free from E-on..
Really handy device which I use just now. Plug my laptop into the main socket and when I shutdown the laptop the side sockets on the adaptor turn off.

Have my lamps and speakers for laptop connected to side sockets :)

same here.....EON came to my work place, handing these out as freebies...great device.

Ah good old Tesco. Eco-warriors saving the world.
#5
These are excellent, paid about £10 for a pair on E-on ones last year. I have mine plugged into my PC so it switches off the printer, speakers and monitor when I turn the PC off.
#6
I've got the freebie e-on one too. Very handy. PC shuts down and all peripherals with it. Marvellous.

Will have a look in my local Tesco's today....

Do you have to manually turn the plug back on?
#9
If this just cuts off the power to the socket do you need to do anything special to switch it back on again, or will powering your laptop up switch it all back on?
#10
None in local Tesco - Barnstaple

Does anyone run a gang lead from a side socket? This would be a hell of a lot cheaper than those 10 socket jobs if so.

Hot regardless of my question, I'm just curious though as I have speakers, Printer, router, DSL modem, lamp... Kettle... Deep fat fryer.

Just kidding about the lamp!

Presumably if you run a power strip with your router and modem into this thing, it'd just never turn off (unless you power down your router and modem manually?)

Just got back from my local Tesco in Newcastle and bought three. There were about 24 on the shelf. Many Thanks

Cheers Lemur... Looks like I'll have to shell out more then! :x

I was under the impression that electicity was cut to side sockets as soon as main socket appliance - be it a PC or washing machine was turned off! :roll:

There is no reason why this should not work as it's no different than simply just having a single higher current draw device plugged into the side socket!

When current draw on the master/middle socket is reduced (ie, when you turn the connected device OFF) electronics would then activate the powersave feature and simply isolate the side Slave sockets and obviously any gang lead / multi-way adapters connected to the side Slave sockets.
Then when current draw increases on the master/middle socket (ie when you turn the device ON) it will UN isolate the side Slave sockets and obviously any gang lead / multi-way adapters connected to the side Slave socket.

I don't have one of these little devices but with my limited electronics knowledge this is surely how they operate. Could anyone who has one confirm this is the case?!?!?

Yes! PC plugged into master socket, trailing socket with printer, speakers, monitor plugged into side.

PC turned off, off go all the peripherals.

Yeah, I do.

Got my Amp plugged into the main socket, then an extension lead on a side socket with my telly, xbox, wii, virgin box and lamp plugged into it.

Works amazingly, free from e-on.
#18
To clarify..

Power will constantly flow through the main socket (middle one)
- Boot up your PC and side sockets will turn on
- Turn off the PC and side sockets will turn off
#19
Cor blimey, now that's what I call feedback...

Ta very much all. I think I'll pop in tomorow morning and see if I can grab one!
#20
These are an excellent idea!

Any one know where else they can be bought?? my local Tesco don't have any!

Voted hot!
#21
Anybody spotted some in the Midlesbrough area? None left in Coulby Newham!:?
#22
none in portsmouth
#23
Didn't see any in the trent Vale (stoke on trent, Newcastle Under Lyme) store
#24
None in the Scunny or Coventry (Walsgrave) stores..........

Yes I get about a bit! lol :-D
#25
If anyone is prepared to pick me a couple of these up then I'd be willing to send a few quid their way on top of postage costs. Please reply to this thread if anyone can oblige.

Thanks

I'll have a look in my local tomorrow mate. Don't worry about the few quid on top, just cover my expenses :).

I was considering getting this as my entertainment set up uses a lot of power.

I would have the amp plugged into the main socket and everything else on a multi adapter on the side. One of the items would be the SKY HD box, if this is off does that mean you can't receive updates etc?
#28
None in Gloucester (Brockworth) branch, nor the Cheltenham store. Dunno about St. Oswalds though.

Weren't even stocked as there was no label listed for it in either store.
#29
What amazed me is the amout of packaging all these tesco "greener living" products have.

In particular this come with its own packaging but then are put into another box(see photo) only 2 at a time.
#30
None at Tesco's in Shard End Birmingham :(

Excellent mate, that's very good of you. I'll keep my fingers crossed :thumbsup:

You will simply get the update when you next turn the box on, the only thing to think about is how long does the Sky box take to boot up and doing recordings when you are out and about and have the whole thing turned off.

I would have it so that you have either the TV as the maters and have the Sky box on its own supply or having the Sky box as the master as it will still be able to record in standby but would turn off the power to the TV, amp and everything else.

hope that makes some sort of sense?!?
#34
Long shot but worth an ask....anyones got any spares that they are willing to offload? Thanks, Nick
#35
I got 2 of these from e-on. 1 is used for computer, printer and speakers, and works a treat. I made the mistake of using the other 1 for my TV, dvd and freview box.I thought rather than reach over and switch all 3 off at the wall this would do it for me. Big mistake, first time I used it my TV packed in working. I was told after never to use on a TV.
#36
I was wondering what the actual internal workings differ between the desktop and TV versions.

I managed to get an E-ON branded desktop plug and like you it works fine. Will need to find a TV model now though.
#37
I only spotted this thread this morning and thought I'd have no chance getting any.

Went to the Prescot Extra today....... Bought 3!! Shelf said £4.89 but scanned through till at £2.44!

There are none left now in this store ;-)

Heat added!

Hi, would like to know if you plugged in your tv as master or slave? I have my Lcd Tv connected as master, turning off my ps3 and dvd player, no problem there.
#39
btw, before this post, there was about 7 on the shelf at my local extras store, after the post, the shelf was cleared, but they have now restocked it, just saw about 10 on the shelf, keeping your eyes open as your local store may get it back in stock.

Loads of these in Isleworth Tesco's today 18th July.................................
