There’s no reason to pay name brand prices for a decent smart plug power strip anymore. Boy Genius Report has found an affordable option on Amazon that costs much less than its name brand counterpart. Find out more from BGR and shop below:

From BGR:
Seriously, I just don’t get it. Why do people pay $25 or $30 for a single Wi-Fi smart plug from a big-name brand when there are much better options out there. Forget that you can but a smart plug that’s essentially the same thing for $15 from other companies, the Conico Smart Surge Protector Power Strip has four outlets that can each be individually controlled by an app, Alexa, or Google Assistant, and it’s on sale right now for just $28 and change after you clip the Amazon coupon. That’s less than you’ll pay for a smart plug from a big brand that only has one outlet.

In addition, it’s also equipped with four USB charging ports and four smart AC plugs. These can all be controlled with WiFi using the corresponding Jinvoo smart app. This is a great product for frequent travellers or those who tend to forget to shut off the lights. Thanks to its auto timer settings, you can even set your lights to be on in the evening to make it look like your home for added security.
