Wouldn’t bother. They don’t work. Bought two packs of these 2 weeks ago and had to return them as they don’t work properly.

Also bought the Eveready HDMI 3-1 switchers for £4.00 each and they didn’t work either.

Woman in B&M told me they getting so much Eveready stuff being returned as it doesn’t work or is faulty.
These should get hot.... Literally 🔥🔥🔥
I cannot comment on the Eveready brand, but I bought similar items from Asda many years ago (3 plugs in a pack but a remote that can handle 4 !!). They were STATUS brand (socket model RCS-K09). They were cheap at the time £5?, and last time I saw them the price had increased to about £20 a set? These are really handy gadgets.
I can highly recommend the Status brand not only as energy saving gadgets, but also for easily switching on the power for hard to reach places, eg peripherals plugged in behind the tv. Each socket is assigned an individual number by pairing with the remote.
One thing that probably gets overlooked is that these are also great for people who may have MOBILITY issues/or for those who want to operate something on a basic level from the comfort of their armchair / bed / study desk, etc.
For instance, someone who needs an occasional lamp/night light, or an oscillating fan. First, switch the lamp on and/or set fan speed button to the desired setting, then use the "remote control plug" to power up/off the lamp/fan itself - hey presto - magic!
Maybe the light idea could be used for a nursery lamp - turn lamp off from doorway instead of walking in/accidentally waking children? just a thought. (a timer could do same job?) Always be danger/safety aware!
The only downside, particularly for mobility impaired, is that on occasion, eg through power cut, etc the plug socket may need to be paired up/married up to the remote. If plug already in the socket, pull it out for a minute or two. Then its just a matter of putting the plug in, turning on the power, pushing the (remote) 'SOCKET' button whilst aiming/pushing button on remote, selecting a different numbered button for each socket. The infra red should then 'pair' up.....and away you go (may need a couple of attempts?). As you pair each socket individually, each socket will respond to the numbered button you selected when pairing, eg 1, 2 3 or 4, etc. The Status brand turns each socket on individually, but I think you could turn off all sockets at once. Can't remember if you could turn them on at once. You can manually press the on/off button on the Status 'socket' but that defeats the object!

One tip: I always used my finger and have never had a problem, but do NOT press the remote buttons with finger nails. After time, the button covering will become damaged (split)

Eveready used to be a well known (respectable) brand particularly for batteries. Brought some batteries a few years ago for a remote and from what I can remember, they didnt work (not impressed). I tend to stick with Duracell, but even they have leaked acid on occasion. I have no idea who owns the Eveready brand today. I've read that the Polaroid brand is now owned by Asda, eg their TVs, and has nothing to do with the original brand.
As with anything, before you buy always try to research item/company reviews first.

I just checked and tested out those Eveready remote control plugs I bought yesterday. They work fine. Well worth it for just £5.00 for two remote plugs, and even two Energizer AAA alkaline batteries included.

Well worth it for just £5.00 for two remote plugs (with remote control).
Better that it uses two "ordinary" AAA batteries, not more expensive button battery or less common batteries.
For information, maximum load of each remote plug, 1,200W

It is not a "one left only" stock. It should be available if a particular branch of B&M bothers to stock up.
Please see "shelf price" as attached.

I like those ones with a tiny "button" switch in front of the remote plug too, so one can also use this to switch on or off, without the remote.
