  • Do you know how much the standby power these use?

    • I got some energy saving double adapters where the bottom one was activated when the device plugged into the top was turned on.
      Had computer in the top a power board in the bottom with everything else. Speakers, monitor, printer, external hdds etc and it actually used more in standby…. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Haven't thought of it but it surely save more energy than leaving the appliances plugged in all time

  • If you want to charge your phone overnight, one way is to plug it into the usb port for this and set the charger to go off after a certain time, and then restart the charging around an hour before you normally get up. That way you are not charging it the whole night. You could even have it charging on and off every hour throughout the night.

    • why though?

      • Why indeed.

        You can keep a lithium cell (what powers phones, laptops and everything portable these days) healthier by charging it at a slower rate. If you had the whole night to charge, it would be better to use the lowest rated charger you had.

        Theoretically lithium cells function best when charged up to 80% of their capacity. My guess would be that's what they are doing, charging the phone to roughly 80%, and then giving it a boost to full just before they wake up. That way it doesn't sit for half the night with battery at 100%.

        Seems like a lot of effort to go to though

  • These are of good quality and responsive through their app. But be careful if you are planning to use it with alexa. Alexa will reply 50% of the time that device isn"t responding and device has some sleep or network disconnection issues. I have ASUS RT-AC68U router and generally my wifi network is pretty stable and I dont experience this issue with any of my other wifi devices controlled via alexa.

  • Anyone know if the latest version of these works with tuya-convert?

  • Quite reliable (as long as you don't go near the 2400W or 10 A) and

    What are you basing this on? Do they relays get excessively hot?

    I'd have thought heaters, as they are just resistive loads, would be less of a risk than, say motors or air-conditioners, which could reduce relay life.
