Both styles of countdown timers are similarly priced and have been heavily-reviewed on Amazon, each earning a 4-1/2 star rating. Overall, my experience with both was also positive, but with one key differentiating feature: the Century Smart only (on the right in the photos) requires you to press a button ONCE for any timing option, whereas the Woods/Teklectric style requires you to push the button MULTIPLE times to get to a setting, then MULTIPLE times to turn it off if you don't want to wait for the timer to turn itself off.
Say you want to use a countdown timer to turn something off after 4 hrs...
* With the Century Smart unit, you would push the 4-hr button ONCE, and you're done (it clicks and light comes on to let you know it's on).
* With the Woods/Teklectric unit, you would need to push the white button 4 TIMES(!) to get it to the 4-hr position (it clicks each press and lights to show you which hourly option you're at).
And if you decide to turn the unit off before 4 hrs...
* With the Century Smart unit, you would press the On/Off button ONCE (top right corner), and you're done (clicks when pressed and light goes out so you know it's off).
* With the Woods/Teklectric unit, you would need to press the white button TWICE (clicks each time it's pressed, then lights go out to let you know it's off).
The Century Smart timer also has a "Repeat" function (Woods/Teklectric does not) that will automatically turn the timer on 24 hrs later and countdown the last setting you selected. (For example, if you want your curling iron to come on for an hour every day at the same time.) I haven't used that feature, but it could be handy for some.
1. This is a non-programmable timer. Meaning every time you turn it on you have to reset it. This is perfect for me, because I use this timer with a radio that I turn on whenever I leave the house as a deterrent for burglars. I also use another timer connected to a small fan that I run in the bathroom after I shower to push out some of the moisture and humidity. Both situations are when I need an appliance on for a limited time, but those start times can change from day to day. If you're looking for something to go on and off during set times, buy a rotary timer or a programmable digital timer instead.
2. It has a grounding prong in the back, so if you happen to be living in an older house, you'll need to buy an adapter or pull out the grounding plug (which I do not recommend)
3. There is a "hold" button which in truth should just be called an "on" button, when you just want whatever device you plugged into the timer to be on without interruption. I suppose this is to save you the trouble of having to remove the timer and plug your device directly into the wall.
Overall great purchase.
The point is that you do not want to keep any of these on a charger all the time as that will shorten your battery's lifetime.
The only problem I have had in years of use is that one LED on one unit failed and no longer lights.
Someone reported that these run hot in some applications. Well, I am sure that is true if you run something that draws 15 amps through it, but that is not really what they are best used for and the heating is to be expected with high current loads.
In battery charge applications, these are GREAT!
Gonna' order two more today!
The product's great, nut the specs could be more clear on how much load it can handle. I recommend ignoring all the faulty online advice and read and understand the specs. Yes, it's important to not overload this thing, but be aware that many people post reviews about things they know nothing about. My space heater specs work ok for this device, some are too big.
The one thing I wish this device did NOT have was a setting to run forever. If I wanted to run continuously, I would just plug in my heater! having a setting to run forever defeats a little of the "foolproof"-ness of the device for my use.

I'm surprised this is the case, as the alternative Belkin Conserve timer I own, does not draw any power from the outlet plug.
The only advantage this Woods has over the Belkin in my opinion, is that the power button has held up so far over time, whereas the Belkin's switch caved in on me after a couple of years. The Belkin switch still works but needs to be nudged at a weird angle for it to work.
I observed that the Woods timer draws about 1.2 watts from the wall. Why the Woods timer has to draw phantom power from the wall I have no idea. It should only use power when the product is used.
I don't like to leave my 20v power tool batteries charging 24/7, so i use this to limit the charge time to 4 hours.
It works as advertised and i no longer need to set a timer as a reminder to myself to unplug the charger.
I think the price is high for what this is, but much cheaper than a single 20v battery that this device protects.
I've been using mine for around 6 months so far without issue.
Only quibble is that the light used to indicate how much time it is set for is too bright. In dim light you can't read the numbers because the light is too bright. Even in bright light, short of daylight, it can be difficult to read the numbers. Definitely not a deal breaker as you can tell because I have two. They work very well, I cannot speak to their longevity though, as I've only been using these a few weeks.
She would always call me at work thinking she left it running and I would have to go home and double check.
This thing works great for it. The problem is she often forgets to plug it into the timer and just plugs into the other available outlet.
so we still have the same problem every once in a while
But I would say its user error and not a problem with the product :)
Previous review: It is exactly what I was looking for.
Competitor's product is too expensive for the purpose that this equipment does. Even the Chinese were selling similar products too expensive.
This one has the right price, works just as expected.
Size is also a great point, since this device is installed together with other outlets that require space around it.
Very good product.
Although not as attractive as belkin conserve outlet, this time has much better value at typical price of $11.
