From the Manufacturer
Cut off power and conserve energy at the flip of a switch. View larger.
Slim design lets you fit two switches in a standard outlet. View larger.
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.

The time it stayed on seemed really reduced. 6 hours became 3 or less. A few weeks later I started smelling burnt plastic or burning wires.
My immediate thought was that the Dyson unit was on fire. It was not and showed no sign of any issue. I unplugged it and ran a test with another outlet without the Belkin socket. The Dyson ran fine with no odor emitted.
That's when I noticed the Belkin plug. It must have shorted out and was burning whenever I activated it. See the attached photos as both the front an rear have fire damage.
I will send it back to Belkin and see what their reply is. This is obviously a major concern.
Please note that this product could have killed my children. I just feel lucky my wife found this in time. I have three of these that are now useless. Wemo/Belkin - I do expect to hear from you with a plan for taking these back. I do note additional burned plugs in other reviews and have also reported this item to the CPSC. Sigh - do not buy this.
***Update*** March 15, 2015
HOURS after I posted this review, Belkin contacted me telling me how critical it was for them to get in touch with me to rectify this. I replied immediately. Two weeks went by and I heard back from them on March 5th asking for my receipt and the photo taken of the burned Conserve Socket. I sent these to them on the same day with a request for them to contact me immediately. Amazingly, two weeks later I still have not heard back from Belkin about this. I can only surmise that I received my initial email because Belkin only cares how my review affects their sales and could not care less about nearly burning my home down with my three children inside it. For shame Belkin!! You've officially converted this Wemo evangelist into a Wemo hater.
However, I wouldn't recommend using this with anything that draws a lot of power (a heater for example). In the manual it states this outlet can handle upwards to 1800 watt. It doesn't, and I found out the hard way.
I used this with my radiating heater. It has 2 settings, 900 watt and 1500 watt. While using this with 900 watt, it works fine. However one day I used this on the 1500 watt settings, 10 mins in, I started to smell burning plastic and saw this outlet puffing smoke.
As you can see in the photo, part of it melted. Good thing I was nearby, I wouldn't wanna imagine what would have happened if I wasn't. It was already past my 1 year warranty as this was the first time I used the max setting on that heater. But from here on I would be careful with any Belkin products that has electrical currents running through.
So, if you are using this for a lower wattage use, it's great for what it does. Just don't use it with anything that draws lots of power.
While the surge protectors themselves may be fine, we bought these for the advertised functionality of the remote switch. We are an adult only house, no kids pushing the switches or playing with them. The switches appeared to be be very poor quality. Instead we bought the green Tripp units, which were a iittle more, but didn't have any switch to worry about.
Anyway, I bought one for my stereo system, as I like to go to sleep with music. Yet, I wanted it to turn off the entire system after so many minutes, as I usually fall asleep pretty quickly. The 30 minute setting was perfect for this, and it performs flawlessly. I really like that the unit has a LED on the same side as the button, so you KNOW when it's on, AND, it's a green LED that turns bright immediately, then drops to a dim glow until the unit turns off. This is wonderful for bedrooms as the light is so low, you don't even notice it.
The other usage I got it for is to turn off my space heater in the winter time, as this unit can handle up to the full 15 amps of pass through current. I tested that, and that also works. I am not sure whether I will use the 30 minute, the 3 or 6 hour setting. See this is for my computer room, and I expect I'll only need it for the first 30 minutes, as my computer does a good job of heating the room after it's on a while.
Update: After only a couple of months, one of the units stopped working as a switch. It now just passes the electricity through, effectively leaving it turned on forever. This makes it worthless when it fails.
