I believe this is the new version of the bulky smart plug that tp link previously released.
Looks like the same product in a much smaller incognito package that aligns with plug sockets, although the app does not look like the previous Kasa app

No other seller on Google for this at present either so this seems a great price for new release.. I would say they want some reviews on the product so have dropped the initial price

Ah good spot, I have ordered already but never noticed the arriving between "23 Nov to 18 Jan"
I noticed that these appear to only be rated to 10A. Probably not too big an issue to most people but the older ones were 13A.

It says 13a on all the pictures

They are rated to 13Amp (see picture). The US version are 10Amp (approx 2200W). UK version rated to 13A. The TP website is misleading.
I notice a lot of people complaining that the older ones were too bulky but I never had an issue putting them side-by-side. I can however see that the manual override button on these new ones is on the side, rather than the face, so if you ever need to use it and have something plugged in next to it...It's going to be tight!
How's the support with open source apps?

TP Link stuff is well integrated with Home Assistant although I see this uses a different app to control it (Tapo rather than the usual Kasa). So no guarantees.

If you look at the pictures you can clearly see it would not be tight or hard to reach
I like it all in one basket 🧺 if it’s not supported by the Kasa app like the rest of my products, I’m not buying. Thanks for the post anyways.
Decent price, and the TP link stuff is good, I've got laods of the larger type.
However, I don't like that it requires a new app (seems pretty pointless to me, unless they have different innards) and I don't want to be messing with another smart home app, and the size of the current ones is no issue to me, so I'll stick with those.

According to a post on another thread last week these do show up on the normal Kasa app, just refreshed my phone and having trouble downloading the app to get a picture though to confirm again

*Pedant Alert*

10 Amps in Trumpland is only ~1100W (110v x 10A).

Utter pedant is that the US are generally operating upto 120VAC (not 110). They are technically rated 15amp (although many US homes are rated 20amp) which gives 1.8KW. That said, this us for US market but sometimes there is a misread-across to the UK

Who knows whether it’s 110v or 120v, indeed historically it used to be 117v, it’s just a nominal voltage anyway, like everywhere as it can fluctuate +/- a set percentage. More importantly has anyone ever tried to to boil an electric kettle in the USA? 10 mins later you get your cup of tea.. LOL

Back on topic.... notice this has Bluetooth to make it easier to set up without using its Wi-fi network. I already have Kasa and Philips Hue, I suppose all these apps are time limited, frustrating though. We really could do with just one standard....

On a 4 plug extension it might be?

I've got a few of the old ones too. On a 4 gang, can still get another plug in either side, and easily reach the manual over-ride on top. I can see the side button on the new style one being awkward in that scenario. Unless you plug it in at the end I guess.

As others have already mentioned, can't say I've ever found the old style ones too bulky. By the time you put another plug on top of this one, it looks like it will stick out a similar sort of distance from the wall anyway ….
So about an hour after this was posted, Amazon emailed to state my expect delivery was being pushed back. Coincidence?

I've ordered mine on the 24th of October. Was supposed to be "Next day". Then "October 28", then they finally gave up and said "soon(tm)". I'm not in a hurry though, and it is a good deal if you're patient. As for the app (Kasa vs Tapo vs Plethora-of-other-brands), just configure it once and continue to use it in Google Home / Alexa instead.
Anyone comment on the app? Can I use the kasa app from the original plugs on these?
Should I get these or old style? New to this WiFi plugs!

Try putting them side by side on a 4way plug and see how that pans out.
I'm after some ZigBee plugs. I have a bundle of tp-links and sonoff, I'd rather none of them to be honest. I want to go down the ZigBee route so I can manage them and my lighting via the Philips Hue app.

Philips Hub works with a few different third party ZigBee plugs, plus their own smart plugs too but sadly Philips smart plugs are once again way over priced.

Just got one of these. It's definitely 13A. What I can say is that it's unfortunately yet another Smart device App (Tapo), which is a shame. However (perphaps) unique selling point from what I can see is that it allows for sunrise/sunset offset timers! - Something I wished Hive/Kasa/Smartlife etc would do!
Will be posting review plus pics, happy to answer questions...

Unfortunately from what I've tried, I cannot get Kasa to see the new Tapo plug, and I cannot get the Tapo app to see my old Kasa Plugs
So unfortunately it's 2 separate apps

If you don't have any then definitely get the new style. If you've already got old ones, then you *may* want to stick with them to keep it all in one app, especially if cheaper.
Though personally I'd go with the new ones since I have use to the sunset based timers only the new ones support.
