    lets you turn anything you plug into it on or off.

    It didn't work with the washing machine…

    These things are a hit and miss probably same way as "smart" light bulbs etc products. Gets confused, can't connect to some server overseas, need to rest it, maybe if internet plays up or there's maintanace on the network. Unreliable, especially if you're going on a holiday and can't be there physically to reset it.

    edit: ops! 4 vs 5 sockets same price apparently

    This was $49 yesterday. Price drop on this one is to match Aldi's offering on 30/10 (3 AC sockets and 3 USB ports).

    Seems that version is 5 sockets (5th is always on) and no USB, and this is 4 sockets with 2xUSB.
    Depends on your use case which one is more value to you. I might decide that in my Home Theatre I want to keep my DVR on permanently, but have no specific need for USB charging.

    I've got both the 4 sockets with the always-on USB & USB-C, and the 5 sockets (1 which is always on).

    Works ok for what i use it for - 5 sockets are for my monitor, pc, speaker, laptop charger, and usb 5-port charger plugged in on the always-on socket.
    Scheduled everything to be turned off during office hours - i just instruct google to turn everything on when I'm working from home.

    one thing i've noticed though is that when i'm using my pc and i turn the speaker plug on, my monitor fluctuates for a split second.
    i'm not sure if it will break the monitor in the long run, or pc for that matter

    i've got the one with the always-on usb/usb-c in the bedroom for 2 electric blankets, lamp, and phone chargers.

    i'm using the Tuya app for these.

      Is there a voltage rating on the USB ports? It mentions total 3.4A total for usb and usbc ports, but isn't the usb c a bit pointless without PD?

      Interested but not sure if can power surface pro (min 12V or 27W)

      •  

        Sorry, not much know-how on the electricity stuff (might be bad considering all of these!)

        Though i doubt that the usb-c has PD and that it can support a surface pro, i haven't really checked.

        But i'm mainly using it to charge the missus' iphone 6s overnight (using a usbc to lightning cable).
        I still have a separate QC3.0 charger plugged in on one of the sockets for my iphone X.

      Most end user tech should have enough power filtering to mitigate the impacts of these types of smart switches.

      i would have to pop one open to see how it is doing the switching but it may just be a simple relay closing the hot line. The flicker you are seeing is presumably due to inrush current impacting the voltage. Using one of these on something with significant power draw will worsen the effect.
