Handy Switch Recall #fail

Link: http://ideavillage.com/detail_1.html

A while back I bought one of these "Handy Switch"s through Publisher's Clearing House. It was great. Decided to get a second one as a possible gift.

But, then I got a letter before Xmas from Publisher's Clearing House....it is being recalled. -- https://www.handyswitchrecall.com/

They have two options....get a cap that goes over the receiver, so in the event of failure it will try to contain the fire damage from it or send the receiver back for exchange.

I opted for the latter.

However what I got back is not a Handy Switch...and the receiver is 3 prong....so it won't work in most places, especially the place that I was using the Handy Switch. Unless I cut the extra prong off....or something.

And, the control unit isn't as nice as the Handy Switch, was was kind of a draw....since I have other remote switch products...the control is also not as pictured...its just the single push button (instead of the pictured on/off rocker)...a small hand held unit.

Guess its back to the quest...

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
