These look good for the money and have recently dropped in price.I bought 'em to control 2 lamps and a fan. The fan has no remote and I want to make sure I'm ready for the incoming heatwave....

We use these at xmas for the outdoor lights routed into the garage and so also so we don't lose an eye trying to turn the Xmas lights off on the tree every night!

We use timers for that but an elderly relative uses these to turn on/off various lamps around the house.

Good price for a set of four.

Heat.

A thing to note is that I don't think the remote takes 'normal' AA/AAA/PP3 type bats & so could be a pain if u use rechargeables.

Good prize

Great find, voted hot.

Why wouldn't it use standard batteries? Do you have one?

I've read the reviews.

Similar ones used to be soooooooo cheap at ASDA. Wish I'd stocked-up. I'd make a killing on eBay

Jumped back to £25.90 now.

jumped to £25.90!:|

these are ok yet one of mine has gone tempremental and the remote has to be within very close range to work one of my plugs, but the rest work through walls... strange!

These were in b&m or maybe something similar.

super cold


Morrisons sell them 1 set for just under £3 or triple set for just under £8

Similar and others are sold by your local toolstation.
Yesterday I bought radio controlled, surge protected 4way extension lead.

Gutted I missed this.

I had a similar effect with an Asda set. If you switch it off at the socket then on again and go through the reset procedure, you should find that it works OK. I guess they can drift slightly off freq, hence the poor response.
