I picked this smart plug up mainly for the smart charging protection. I have a OnePlus 3T and one of the features is Dash Charging. I try to use Dash Charging when I'm awake. However, sometimes, I forget to plug my phone in when I wake up, so when I get out the door, my phone is running on 30-40% battery (or less).
As for the device itself, it's very small and looks very modern. It you compare it to the TP Link HS100, it is obviously much less bulky looking. I have yet to see if it blocks a second outlet as I've plugged the Elf Smart Plug into a wall tap.
Despite being listed on Amazon as Google Home compatible, currently, they are not. I emailed their customer service and they hope to have it up by early next year. Possibly even by the end of this year as they are in the final stage of the approval process.
I also like that there is a timer feature that can be repeated. The first thing that comes to my mind for a feature such as this is for a fan in the summer or space heater in the winter. There's also a schedule feature for things like Christmas trees or if you want to make it look like you're home while you're away. It doesn't have an Away feature like the TP-Link Kasa app, but you can manually turn the plug on or off remotely.
The Smart Charge feature can only be turned on once you have a phone charger connected. There are no instructions from what I could find as to how this feature works. However, this is what I gathered from trying it myself. In order to activate the feature, you need to turn on the Smart Charge feature after plugging in the phone and after the smart plug is powered on. Once the battery reaches 100%, the smart plug powers off. However, I've also noticed something. When the smart plug is powered on and the Smart Charge feature appears to be activated automatically, it doesn't activate when the battery reaches 100%. This happened once so far. I'll keep an eye on this and update this review as needed.
The Smart Charge Protection is a very useful feature and I'm glad it works for the most part.
With the new fixed skill everything works fine

They have their own nicely designed smart control APP on iOS, the setup was very easy and clear, only took 2 minutes and everything will running smoothly later on:
0. Download the app
0. Hold the power btn on it and then connect to its internal WIFI hotspot.
0. Go to "Add device" and it will automatically detect the device.
0. Set the WIFI network and password same as my home wireless router and everything is ready to go.
At first I thought I can control it only when I connect to the same WIFI network it connects, but it surprised me that I can control it anywhere anytime I can just access the internet. I can turn on the light of my bedroom when I am still walking towards my home instead of searching for the switch in the dark now, bravo!!
I can even set daily schedule and timer for each plug, e.g. the light can be turned on in same time as my alarm rings.
Support Alexa & Google Home are big pluses. I will get a alexa later and will definately try with it.
Some small features are also pretty useful such as "Scenes" feature, I can set scheduled turn on/off action with combination of multiple devices on any day & any time I want, provides me more smart home control options.
Some nice feature could have in the future updates:
*Support widget in the iOS system, so that I don't have to open app to switch on/off everytime, this would be much more convenient.
*Refine some of UI and expereiences for the app.
In conclusion, as a fairly new product on Amazon, it is already very integrated and satisfactory to me.
For 2 weeks at least... Yesterday it suddenly stopped working. I thought maybe Alexa just couldn't recognize it, but the Eques Elf app itself can't control the plug anymore. I hit the On/Off button in the app and it just sits there for several seconds before telling me the network timed out. So I thought, why don't I just delete the plug and add it again. You can't. Let me just reiterate that: Eques developed an app where you can't remove a device. What kind of developer doesn't add a remove option? That's basic troubleshooting, delete then add again. Nope, not in this app. Their website is a joke too. No customer support of any kind. I tried pushing the button on the plug again to see if that would reset it, but it doesn't do anything.
This was my first foray into smart home tech and I'm sorely disappointed. Don't waste your money, turn your lights on and off like a normal person.
At first, this wouldn't connect to wifi even when it was just next to the modem. We ran an extension cable and put it in a better location. Once we did that it worked fantastically! The app is super simple to use once you get it set up.
The description says this is Amazon Alexa compatible which is accurate! Though when I first tried to connect the plug to my Echo(s), it wouldn't work. While on vacation, I checked my Alexa app and the device "Basement" showed up as controllable from the Alexa app. I came home and discovered that for some reason, Alexa now works perfectly and I can just say "Alexa, turn on Basement."
After we moved a lot of old army surplus tech out of my basement, I thought I'd retry the plug in the location I originally intended. I plug it in and it instantly reconnected to the wifi and started back to work in the spot I wanted. Guess it was all that metal blocking it's connection.
TL;DR: This is a great plug. The app is super simple and Alexa compatibility is extremely convenient. You just need to download the Eques skill on the Alexa App. Just make sure you have no large bodies of metal in the way of the modem.
