    With many “Conserve” products, Belkin doesn’t necessarily create a brand new concept with their creation, but they excel in design and execution!

    I am a fan of their remote-switch “Conserve” power strip, and I love this little gadget too.

    It’s essentially just a timer for an outlet, not unlike the existing products you can find on Amazon, but Belkin greatly simplified the controls, and made it so the power timer is on-demand instead of on a schedule.

    Unlike the relatively complicated dials of some other timers, the controls on the Belkin Conserve Socket are pretty much idiot proof. There’s a switch on the site that lets you choose from one of three time increments (1/2 hour, 3 hours, 6 hours), then a button on top to start the timer. It then shuts itself off when the time elapses. That’s it! Easy.

    It’s perfect for keeping a lamp on while the kids go to sleep, for charging gadgets where you want to reduce phantom draw, and this Christmas, I think I’m going to try it out for attaching my Christmas tree lights (turning the lights on only when we want to for a time).

    Overall this is a nice, simple (and inexpensive!) product.

    This product works as advertised. It is just a relay that kicks off after the set amount of time. I like it because:

    * It’s dead easy to use
    * It draws no power when off
    * It is small and nice looking enough that you don’t mind leaving it in a power socket
    * It’s rated for 15 amps, as much as any outlet can deliver, so you don’t need to worry about whether you’re plugging in something that could burn it out

    I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because I’d like more timeout choices than 1/2 hour, 3 hours and 6 hours.

    My battery powered drills always need recharging and I was concerned about leaving them on the charger until I needed them. I’ve heard they could cause a fire if they get too hot. This product allows the tools to be charged but removes the danger. I purchased 4 outlets and also use them for our cell phones. You can keep your chargers plugged in but they do not draw electricity until you turn them on. The best thing is the time can be easily adjusted to 30 min, 3 hours or 6 hours. I am very pleased! The product is made very well, not shoddy.
