This is a great price for these I am not sure how much energy these actually save but its worth a try

It seems to me that most devices that use standby power do so for a good reason, such as the timer on a coffee maker. Switching them off at the outlet causes them to lose their time and/or other settings, or to consume their internal battery (like a desktop computer) that maintains these during a lack of mains power.

Modern phone, tablet, and laptop chargers usually draw nothing when not plugged in to their devices.

I'm skeptical that devices like this can make any measurable impact either ecologically or economically. If what they conserve doesn't exceed the energy and environmental impact of manufacturing these devices, they could conceivably have a negative overall impact.

The horizontal design on these is great for saving space at the outlet. I really think the wear & tear on the appliance cord as well as the receptacle is another savings consideration:)

That is a pretty neat little item. Saves having to unplug your small appliances or other items when not in use.
