Good energy saving features

"Product works well. There are two normal sockets, a master socket and five slave sockets. Adapter is programmable: when the master device is on standby, you hold a button for a few seconds and the adapter learns what current draw corresponds to standby. Thereafter, when the master device current draw falls to roughly this value, the slave sockets have power shut off. There seems to be a couple of seconds delay between master going on and slaves coming on, and between master going off and slaves going off - I imagine this is a deliberate feature."

energy saving extension lead

"This lead was just what I was looking for, but worked well for a couple of months, and then like every other item I have purchased from the Masterplug brand, it stopped working.
it now does not switch the slave sockets so pretty much useless for the intended application.
it is just an expensive multi way extension.

Didnt work for me..

"Im always getting brown outs / power cuts where I live so I thought this would be a useful protection device. Unfortunately it didn’t work for very low current consumption electronic devices, in fact the slave sockets didn’t work at all. I’ve spend 000s with screwfix over the years and their products have been overwhelmingly excellent value and fit for purpose. This is only the second product I wouldn’t recommend. If you want serious protection suggest you buy a proper UPS like an APC. Maybe this was a faulty device that I should have sent back, but we are all busy people and this stuff should just work..."
