Just quickly looking, TWO reviewers mentioned they burnt and the plastic melted. Pretty much not worth it imo.

Little info would be nice OP.

This is basically a timer. You can choose how long it stays on 30 minutes, 3 hours, and 6 hours.
Tap the button it goes on, then self turns off.
That's it.

I bought one years ago and never did find a great use for it.

Probably were using it with space heaters and air conditioners. LMAOLMAO

Would be good for a lamp/light or a fan but with how cheap smart plugs are this is really kinda eh.

Couldnt think of a use for this other than Christmas lights. Not sure why this is being offered to us Amazon Prime Members as some sorta exclusive deal.

I have one set to a power strip for my Dewalt charger and few other chargers, when I need to charge the battery I just put the battery on and press the buttons. I am sure the battery would be fine and the charger would stop automatically, but need to give myself a reason as to why I bought it years ago

I'm kind of in shock. I've been working on a project of building a drawer that can be controlled with linear actuators and a voice assistant to open and close on command. I've been stuck on what to do for a part of the design. This could actually be the exact thing that I needed to help reverse polarities of power supplies to open and close the drawer then automatically cut the power to the actuator. I guess there is actually a use for it after all! Just wish I could order a lot more! Thanks OP!

That's actually a pretty good idea. Thanks for sharing. I'm always paranoid about all of the batteries in my shop. I try not to leave them on the chargers any longer than necessary but sometimes, things happen. If they don't work for a project of mine, they will be used for my power station setup.

There are remote controlled outlets that either use rf remotes or wifi that can be programmed to do the same thing. They have also been near this price as well

Is this one where you can see how much energy is used?
If not, are there plugs that measured energy usage? Please thank you.

They are meant for space heaters - "The Conserve Socket can be used with curling irons, clothes irons, toaster ovens, coffeemakers, and space heaters to save energy and make your home safer. "

Makes me believe they are crappy quality...

Variations of this one can be found. I got this one because of it's dimensions and where the location of the switch was. It does not rob you of outlets either.
Is not a timer though, a simple on/off. I have 2 Oppo players on my Home Theater system, a regular BD and the 4K player, so I only leave the one on that I am using.
