Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Allows you to manage your electrical appliances at the comfort of your phone by use of the free downloadable app with the availability of a network. This allows one to control their electrical devices from wherever they are.
We loved the sleek, round design of the Gosund Mini smart plug.
The pairing/setup process is quick and easy. Once completed, you will see a listing of adapters and their status.
Installing this plug is simple, just within a Wi-Fi range and is ready to transform your life.
Easy to install and safe.
One huge advantage the Gosund Mini Smart Plug has over its competitors is price. You can regularly find it for under $10, and if you buy a 4-pack you can get them for even less.
The App is user-friendly.
The app, Smart Life, has a clean interface, making it very easy to use. Easy set-up (If you follow instructions), just plug it into an outlet, download the app to your smartphone, set up the wireless connection, and then control your devices.
Very aesthetically pleasing. The finishing is very nice and the footprint extremely small. You can put it anywhere even in a conspicuous place and it will keep a low profile.

What reviewers didn't like

Unsafe due to the possibility of Wi-Fi hack.
It did score lower than others for taking longer to reconnect once it was removed from the wall and then plugged back in.
Only works on 2.4GHz wireless network.
The high price tag is not justified.
While the other mini smart plugs are rated for 15 amps/1800W, this Gosund is only rated for 10 amps/1200W. For most things you would plug in this won’t make a difference. But your vacuum cleaner or portable space heater might have a quibble.
It is not compatible with Apple HomeKit.
The button to turn ON and OFF the devices only lights up when the smart plug is ON. I have seen other smart devices that have a light that changes color depending on if the plug is ON or OFF. This comes in handy when you are trying to look for the outlet in the dark.
