Right now there are slickdeals threads for both the Aukey and the Etekcity outlets. In both cases you get 5 outlets and 2 remotes and they are within $2 of each other. Here are the differences:

The etekcity has been available alot longer and many people have used it with success. It HAS had some duds that died randomly.

The aukey one is 1400w/12a. The etekcity is 1200w/10a (important if running a space heater with one of these)
The aukey outlets are physically smaller than the etekcity ones which could make plugging in tight places easier although they do sell 1 foot extension cables that work around this issue but then you have to factory in the extra fee for those.
The aukey remote includes an ALL On and ALL off button in addition to the individual one. The etekcity does not. If you have multiple floorlamps in a room it's a heck of a lot easier to hit one button and have them all go on or off then have to do each one individually.

Now if you add in a broadlink RM Pro or a "hook" device you can make these devices "smart" and have them controlled via alexa. It involves some work and you probably should browse specific threads to get details. Some links of use are:

https://github.com/beckyricha/Bro...AN-Control

https://community.smartthings.com...ty/2647/75

I own a hook and personally don't recommend it as the development team has been very slack, lied about what features were actually available at time of sale (I still don't think they have the 315mhz support they promised) and has offered NO support on their own user forum. Mostly empty promises up till they get your money. I eventually made the switch because the broadlink for 1/2 the price also does IR which means you can turn on/off your tv, receiver etc. Basically a poor mans harmony hub but it does require running an app on an always on android device at your house. If you have an android tv stick, old tablet, old phone...it's a no brainer. Plenty of other things you can do with the android device to.

Q: Do these have vampire draw? IE. how much power do they use when plugged in alone and on and off?
A: "I hooked one up to my Kill a Watt and it showed 00.1 or 1/10th of a watt in standby almost nothing."
"....this device will use 2.4 watts a day, or 876 watts per year"
"....you would see a total cost of 15.768 cents per year of vampire use"

Short answer is no. These use RF. Amazon buttons use wifi. They can't talk to each other.
Longer answer, with lot of work and some hub that converts wifi to rf you might be able to, but you will also need to hack the Amazon buttons. I know it has been done for smarthings, so it is possible. IMHO it is not worth the effort. Just buy wifi outlets.

Amazon dash buttons. the little buttons you stick places to quickly order more of something like detergent and toilet paper.

I heard these actually consume a lot more power than they claim, which cancels out any power savings they might give. Anyone speak to this?
