Product Description

Style: Switch

Product Description

Many of the electronics and appliances around your home use electricity even when they're not in use-wasting energy and driving up your electric bill. The Conserve Power Switch completely shuts off power-including standby power-to your electronics and appliances with the flip of a switch, to help you save energy.

From the Manufacturer

The Belkin Conserve Power Switch provides a simple way to save energy and reduce utility costs. Electronic devices left plugged in when not in use can still draw power. The Conserve Power Switch cuts power with the flip of a switch. There is no need to unplug cords from the wall, which means your worktops and floor areas stay tidy. The Belkin Conserve's slim design allows two switches to fit next to each other in a standard wall outlet, and it features an illuminated easy-flip power button, so you know when power is active.

Cut Power to Any Device with the Flip of a Switch
The Belkin Conserve Power Switch gives you all the benefits of unplugging your devices without the hassle. An illuminated easy-flip power switch on the side of the Conserve Power Switch makes it easy to know whether the device plugged in is drawing power. Any device plugged into the Conserve Power Switch will draw zero power until you flip the switch to the on position.

Save Energy and Money
In a typical American household, there are up to 40 devices drawing power when not in use at a given time. This can average up to $100 a year in unnecessary energy costs. By using a Conserve Power Switch on electric devices like stereos, chargers, and microwaves, it's easy to ensure you're not wasting energy on devices you aren't using.

Keep Worktops and Floors Clutter Free
Unplugging cords from outlets can make workspaces untidy and even unsafe. The Conserve Power Switch lets you keep your devices plugged in, so worktops stay free of clutter.

Use Alone or In a Pair
Designed for standard US three-pin power outlets, the Conserve Power Switch does not obstruct an unused outlet when plugged in. Two Conserve Power Switches easily fit next to each other in one standard outlet and can work simultaneously.

Only use the Conserve Power Switch indoors in a dry location.

Consume Energy Wisely: About Belkin's Conserve Products

The Belkin Conserve Power Switch is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

It works well and is easy to switch on and off.

The Belkin Conserve Power Switch is a great way to cut off power sucking electronics, even when they're supposed to be "off."

This switched outlet fits into a plug without blocking the other outlet and when it is on the switch glows green.

Style Name: Switch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've wanted one of these for 20 years! Local hardware stores have long offered 2 wire ungrounded plug-in on/off switches, but for some reason never a 3 wire grounded version until now. This one is a nice white color, UL-listed, rated for 15 Amps (1,875 Watts), and its switch is lit in a pleasant green when power is on. As advertised, the switch covers only one outlet of a two position outlet, allowing two to be used together. A reputable brand, well made of good materials, and very affordable. Definitely recommended!

It is just a 3-prong outlet switch that lights up. The light is the only conserving aspect that reminds you that it is on so you can notice and turn it off. It is subtle enough to not draw attention. It is nice to be able to notice a little green glow in my kitchen at night and remember to turn it off. My Keureg coffee maker draws 6W when off, so this was perfect to be able to turn it off when not in use without wasting 6W. It is much more compact than having to put a whole power strip on the counter. I struggled to find any 3-prong grounded switches. This was the only one I found online or in stores from major retailers.

The orientation that hangs to the right might not fit all situations. It does allow you to fit 2 of them in a single gang outlet. But if you have a 2-gang dual outlet with power on the left and something else on the right (like a light switch) it will not fit. Also the light only faces one direction, to the right and might not face in a noticeable direction. I wish I had the choice to oriented it left or right. You can always pull out a screw driver, turn off your power, and flip the outlet upside down if it were really a problem. But I found another way, I bought a GE 58368 3-Grounded Outlet Adapter, and plugged this into that on the left side and oriented downward. So overall it hangs left and down and isn't affected by the light switch on the right. But I have to rely on the glow off the kitchen tile to see the light.

It really is just a switch with a light. It is constructed well. Only the orientation might not fit all situations.

Style Name: Switch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Belkin F7C016q Conserve Power Switch is pretty simple. It is a small switch that plugs into an outlet and lets you turn off power to anything plugged into the switch. Sure, you could unplug something, almost as easy, but the advantage of this little switch is you don't have cords hanging lose after unplugging them. This makes it very easy to cut the power, just flip the switch on the right hand side of the switch.

It sticks out a little to the right of your outlet, but does not interfere with the other outlet, and in fact you can put two switches together as shown in the advertising pictures.

Belkin is a good brand and this switch does just what it is supposed to. Good product for cutting power to things you don't want to unplug.

Admit it. You know you shouldn't leave your cell phone, iPod, or laptop adaptor plugged in all the time. But it's a bother to mess around with 'em every time you begin or finish a charge...especially if you're in a hurry, right?

Well, this Belkin plug + switch gives you the best of both worlds! Now it's possible to leave an adaptor permanently plugged in *and* only consume power when something is being charged.

Using the Conserve Power Switch is simple. It has a three-prong outlet controlled by a rocker switch. All you have to do is plug the Switch into a grounded plug strip or wall outlet and you're ready to go. The rocker switch lights up when the juice is flowing. Easy, simple, effective.

Bottom line: the Belkin F7C016q Conserve Power Switch is a well-constructed device and provides an excellent way to save electricity without sacrificing convenience.

Update (January 2013): no problems to report after over a year of daily use of the switch.

It's an OK product does what it's supposed to do but it just seems like it had more potential. For example, they could have used the button on top as an on/off, not just on. It makes it a bit annoying if you want to use just the timer as the power control. In order to turn this off without the timer ending, you have to unplug it and plug it back in. Other than that it works pretty well and I'm happy with it. I use it to run a room air filter for a few hours after I leave the house.

Style Name: Switch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I like the idea of eliminating the use of power due to appliances just being plugged in, but unless you really hate the idea of having your power cords laying behind your appliance, I am not sure I see the purpose. Does this power switch work? Yes. Once the switch was in the off position I could not detect any power flowing through the cord (using a volt meter). But unplugging your applicance has the same effect, and it is free. It takes just as much work to unplug your applicance as it does to reach back to the outlet to flip this switch. At $7.00 each you can see this will add up to some money to do each apppliance.

If this device provided some surge protection along with the switch I would then say this is worth the cost. Except, then again unplugging your devices is the ultimate in surge protection. So, if you just can't stand to see your plugs laying around unplugged go ahead and get these.
