    Good spot - I think THIS one is the same unit, and slightly cheaper if you are buying 2+ at £16.50 plus vat (then it comes with free delivery).

    If you're only buying one, vat and delivery charge makes it more costly overall...

    Multiple purchase discount available also (i.e 3+ from £14.50 each)

    i have had one of these for a while now and its great, no more switching loads of things off seperately just turn off by remote and it will switch off everything plugged into it after about 5 seconds. Then just press your remote again and it all switches back on.
    Brilliant!!!

    um... wouldn't it be easier, and cheaper, to just use a normal multi-plug adapter and switch it off at the wall ?:confused:

    The point is most people can't be bothered and this is a simple way to solve that. Also some peoples sockets are unreachable.

    Well, I have a book case in front of my plugs, the remote control can get to turn the plugs of via the switch (which I may add I got from Tescos about a year ago for £12.94 and yes it was the dragons den version! so don't think you've missed out of they run out of this- just look elsewhere- Tescos don't have them anymore btw)

    Funnily enough, even after going to the gym for Cardio (2 hours a day) 5 days a week, my wrists aren't quite thin enough (they need to be about 1 inch thin and 10 cm longer) to get to the plug switch off....hence the value of this plug.

    Assumptions and making stereotypes rarely gets you that far. But can see your point.

    well forgive me, but a previous poster did say it was also useful for those who 'couldn't be bothered'.

    Well done for being such an energetic gym bunny tho, you must be super fit.
