This ones a old chestnut!

Only £4 @ Morrisons

its always been at this price. and always instock. and even cheaper in some places as mentioned above.

brought some of these earlier when went shopping great fun to wind the missus up haha

worth having though. I'd never considered them a few months ago until I got some.

Great for turning on and off lights where the switches are in awkward places.

Will the remote work if the socket is hidden eg behind the sofa? or are they line of sight?

Awsome price seen them four times else where, I believe they are on a rf so you don't have to be in line of sight.

Ghostriderz - Yes it will Will even work through rooms.

scunered, agreed.

These have been this price for ages (in Asda - Milton Keynes for example), we bought two sets in the summer for a fiver each. Compared to other brands, they are a good price, but I wouldn't say they are a new deal.

They work really well through rooms, I even put a socket on for the lights on the garage at christmas, worked a treat.. saved mucking around with a compulsory timer and clicked it on in the warmth of the lounge with the remote. Great product, I'd highly rate the Asda ones you've listed.

I bought a set of these when they were 3 for £3 at morrisons last year. Range is fantastic as they are radio frequency rather than infrared so can work without line of sight. You can also set more than one socket to one button. So for example if I press number 1 it turns on my tv & amp whilst at the same time turns my sub on across the other side of the room.

One minor niggle, they take a bit of a non-standard battery. Not got mine in front of me at the moment, so can't expand on that!

Gotta agree with that. I've removed the back and seen the weird battery. Luckily haven't had to change it yet. I think it maybe an ebay ordeal to get hold of one.

The battery is available in camera shops, but I think you can buy them in ASDA too.
My only niggle with these is that if you turn off the mains then you have to reset them to the remote. That's not a big problem really though.

The batteries are not uncommon as it's the same one in our wireless doorbell but they are not cheap.
As for the item itself, I got a set for my mum & dad at xmas to save them having to bend down to switch off things at night & they are good but have had to reset them once already for them as the buttons started getting mixed up.
Great item for people with disabilities though, very helpful.

might be the same battery found in internet bank card readers... get the bank to send you one for free!

How do you scare a battery that much. oO

Great for the computer ..

Add an extension lead, then plug in the computer, printer, router, broadband box and even an overhead light (in my case)

Then at the end of the day, a click on the remote and everything is off, saving the hastle of scrambling through to the back of the desk. The electricity saving is probably not worth thinking about, but peace of mind is a big plus, having items turned off.

just remember to shut the pc down as otherwise your be having hdd data problems!

batteries, batteries, batteries !

for a fiver, you'd be buying a new set of these rather than trying to source new batteries, especially as these sets are apparently always around this price.

Anyone know if you can pair them with your iPhone?

Anyone know if they are X10 compatible? Blinding price either way

Why would u wanna pair it with ur iPhone lol?

these are excellent. use them for various lamp shades in the living room and hall. has one off button so they can all be switched off at once. can pair up to 4 plug sockets on one remote and they are rf with a good range.
