The 1.5m-long white cable extends away from the plug unit to a suitable location where the infrared sensor can be found with your existing TV Remote etc. This Plug-Unit is suitable for the usual 13amp 240v UK domestic power supply, and good for up to 3000watts (3kW) plug-in loads...ie regular items like TV, stereo, DVD, VCR, etc. How to set-up and use the Energy Saving Plug: 1. Plug your electric item(s) into the energy saving plug. 2. Plug the energy saving plug into the wall socket 3. Place the Infrared receiver sensor so it is in sight of your appliance Remote Controller (eg TV Remote Controller). 4. Turn on the mains power at the wall socket - the neon will flash slowly. 5. Point your appliance remote controller at he Infrared Sensor/receiver, and hold down the button that you want to use to control the Energy Saving Plug. (Any button will serve). In the future, pressing that selected button on your Remote Controller will switch the Energy Plug Unit. The neon light will flash quickly and then go off....the remote controller is now synchronised with the plug unit. 6. To turn on your appliance (eg TV, DVD player etc), point the Remote at the sensor and just press the assigned button on your Remote Controller once. Allow 60 seconds before switching off again. 7. To switch off the appliance(s), it is the same thing, just point Remote Controller at the IR-sensor and press the assigned button on the Remote Controller. 8. To change the assigned button or to use a different Remote Controller, switch off power at the wall socket, hold the reset button down until the light flashes and repeat the above steps to synchronise the new button/remote.

I've used one of these energy saving plugs on a cable TV receiver for a while now. The receiver gets very warm even when on standby and that got me thinking how much power it was using. Having looked at the reviews of the unit online it seems that it uses upto 75% of its normal power consumption in standby!

This means you point your devices remote control at the little receiver connected by a cable to the plug and choose a button you'd like to turn the power on and off with. I ...

'Don't put your life on standby' That's the advice on the card that came with this device manufactured and distributed by the Grass Roots Group originally under a UK Government scheme. While I can't claim to be completely 'green' in lifestyle, I do at least make some effort to save the planet and hopefully money at the same time. This product may have some part to play - but in our household I fear it's only a minor role.

Always looking for ways to save money I have been actively looking in to ways to save on my energy usage (this is due to the price of electricity being on the rise continually) and so when I heard about the energy saving plug from Lime Green Gadgets I decided to give it a shot but have I seen any difference? Pros: The thinking behind this energy saving plug is simple. The sensor will recognise your remote control signal and switch your item off fully rather than leaving it on standby which saves power. The plug will draw down a little energy as it needs this for the sensor but at less than 0.5 watts this is negligible in comparison to an item being left ... Read the complete review

Gets rid of smokey smells, food smells and musty smells on clothes; can be used on non clothing items as well; good for things that need dry cleaning; great for holidays; can get smaller sizes as well; good for people who need clothes in a rush!!
