5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Device, 30 Aug 2009
At the price, I did not have high expectations of this, but it is a good quality item and solidly built. I use it for an HTC smartphone (with sat-nav) and my daughter's DVD player in the car, leaving a spare USB socket. Like this, it has performed impeccably, the only downside being that it makes for a fairly tall protrusion from the centre-console. I can imagine that with all three sockets in use there'd be a fair tangle of cables too. I would wholeheartedly recommend, but do check that it's not going to get in the way of your handbrake or gear-stick.

The first edition was riddled with errors, but the few that are in this version (which I believe has been very… Read more

I bought Bye Bye Standby primarily to enable me to switch my broadband router and modem on and off over night. Being in a slightly inaccessible location downstairs, I very rarely bothered to go and switch them off despite the fact that they were burning electricity round the clock. Buying the triple-pack allowed me to also control the computer, monitor and speakers, as well as my TV, set top box and aerial amplifier. Individually, few of these things were drawing much current, but by using a trailing socket and plugging in several devices, a worthwhile saving can be made. I still have to switch my speakers off the old-fashioned way because they make a loud noise when switched on and off at… Read more
