I have 2 large lighted display cabinets that don’t have switches for the lights. I don’t like the idea of plugging and unplugging them from the outlet as that loosens up the outlet. These switches are inexpensive and have some nice features. First, they are 3-prong. The receptacle is outlined in green, which makes it easier to see when plugging something into it. The on/off switch is a good sized, is easily accessible, has a good feel and illuminates when on. The only potential downside is the switch is slightly wider than a standard outlet cover. So, if your outlet is in a tight spot, this switch may not fit. If not for that, I would have given this product 5 stars.
In today’s world, it seems everything needs to be charged; especially if you have kids (ipods, cell phones, mp3 players, etc.). I was constantly going around the house and unplugging the chargers that were plugged in and charging nothing! Now I set this to the time interval that is needed and my family plugs their items into it and presses the button. Yay! it turns off when its done charging. I only wish amazon would sell a multi pack at a slight discount because I would have them all over my house! LOVE this item! and Im back to buy another one!
Would be amazing to have more time options, especially 8 hours but the current options have solved my problem.
These products are most of the time well build and they are inexpensive, this is the case with this conserve socket, feels great, uses only one power outlet if you place it on the top in a dual outlet, has an start button that will start the countdown and a led to let you know when there is power going and off when the device is inactive. I’m really happy with this purchase.
I use to so I can charge my phone at night without over charging my phone. My battery will never turn to crap with this! Love this.
I was forever plugging and unplugging the toaster oven. I had once had a fire in one that was plugged in but off, so I am very careful now. This lets me just touch the switch. I use another one for a different kitchen appliance so that I can always leave them plugged in. The fact of the energy conservation is an added plus.
It disappears once something is plugged in, but the one improvement I’d suggest is making it a bit more discrete. The switch itself is very easy to use and the illumination that signifies it is on is not distracting.
I always worry as I leave the house whether I turned it off or not; now I can plug it in to this and it’ll auto shut off after 30 minutes, which is way more time than I need to do my hair anyways. I wish I had gotten a couple more for charging my iPhone, etc. These are really great.
