Advantages Prevents energy usage by appliances left on standbye
Disadvantages Perhaps a little expensive in some stores.
I am all for saving energy, be it my own or that supplied by the electricity board to my TV, computer, and radio, all of which are plugged into sockets, around the house; none of which are not easy to reach, in that they are usually hidden behind heavy pieces of furniture.Nowadays, devices such as television sets, and radios remain on standby, even when switched off.
I am led to believe that if the electricity supply is not switched off at the wall there is a constant leakage of valuable energy, hence, wastage of power into and through the appliance - not to mention waste of precious pennies. I checked this out, by making sure all my electrical appliances were switched off and looking at the disc on my electricity meter - sure enough the little disc was turning, albeit very, very slowly, registering energy usage.
The small instruction leaflet was concise and easy to follow, also describing how it would save energy.
The remote has five red and five green buttons. The red turns off the supply of electricity flowing into the TV. The green button turns it back on.When all three adaptors are in use, one set of red and green buttons can be set to control all three plugs simultaneously.
I never used to switch any appliance off at the wall, which meant that all my standby appliances were left on standby, and, in effect, eating my money.
A quick stab at the red button and the energy supply was instantly cut -off - any leaks plugged! My meter dial stopped turning.
One impressive feature of this device that certainly appeals to me ( Alright - my lazy side, then) is when, I want to record a TV programme late evening, but don't want to stay up until it had finished recording.
