Very useful timer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ANSMANN AES-1 Zero Watt Energy Saving Timer Plug (Accessory)
I bought this because the drying sensor on our tumble dryer no longer works, and the wife does not like frying the clothes. At least with this we can control how long the dryer will go for so that it will not over dry everything. I have also used it for charging the phone over night, so that it switches off after a couple of hours, and does not degrade the battery further by remaining on charge until I remember where I have left it. This will also be particularly useful with my rechargeable drills, since I always forget that I have left them on charge in the garage. And being able to select different charging times from 15 mins up to 8 hours (charging time doubles each time you press the green button), is really useful. I have given it four stars rather than five, since the insertion force for the plug is way too high, and will be a problem for those who do not have a good grip. Otherwise a really useful product, which seems well made.
