Ecotek Extension lead. £9.79 in (my local) store, or £15.65 from Tesco Direct (usually £19.57).

Standby saver sockets are dull, but I bought this for the IR remote: it can learn the signal from any IR remote control button. So you might control a fan or lights using your TV/Universal remote, without needing a separate RF controller.

Also more flexible operation than the usual all-or-nothing switching ("4 permanent standby sockets and 2 switchable between standby and mains for user flexibility").

"Saves money, circa £42 per year (Dependant on number of appliances plugged into the socket). Switches all standby power to zero to appliances that are plugged into it. Easy to install, set up in seconds. Operates using your existing remote control. 4 permanent standby sockets and 2 switchable between standby and mains for user flexibility. For use with TV, audio, DVD, games consoles and all other associated equipment
Number of Sockets 6. Cable Length in Metres 1.4"

Great idea. Must look into this to see if I can make effective use of it. :-)

Are these in regular stores, or do you have to go to one of the Extra ones?

I'd been looking for one of those. Thanks!

Thanks, OP, picked up some for me and my folks. Found mine in an Extra store, BTW

Heat & rep

What are you guys going to plug into yours?

I'll have the TV, Wii, DVD, DIVX player, and amp plugged into the standby sockets, and the PVR in the mains socket
