Hive Active Plug £24 Maplins - Elsewhere £39

Found 10th Nov
Looking at installing Hive products and thought I'd just compare the price British Gas quoting against other major suppliers - and this plug alone is 2/3 price at Maplins - Argos / Amazon / Screwfix & British Gas all all £39 - and it IS the same plug ...
seems a no brainer to me - so I'm going to compare the other Hive products as well so may update this post

This is a different plug to most other places. The one most places have is also £39.99 on maplin website. Not sure what the difference is, maybe this is an older version? Hive don't appear to list it on their website.
It is still a good price

This is the older version plug.

I got one and still works perfectly.

Wow, £24 quid for a plug. Get yourself to gearbest/banggood, there are similar ones for under a tenner. I've got a couple of Sonoff ones and they are superb, however not sure if they would interact with the Hive system,

Not bad price obviously it's more than China but least you can trust it not to set on fire and actually work. I've got a few of the hive products, been really impressed so far how reliable they are. China ones, would you need an plug adaptor as well? Making them even more dangerous.

This is the older style plug, the discount is only £2 but it will still work on the Hive smart network but isn’t the latest design

tplink HS110 is much better
also has energy monitoring - which is THE feature I needed most

Were those 10 Amp or 13 Amp? I have only come across 10 Amp ones on Banggood.

I want them for Kettle, Oil Raditor, Dehumidifier etc
