Seems like a decent price, wonder how they would hold up in our winter weather here. Also fine for vehicle block heaters?

I would be careful, car heaters run 750-1500 watts, much more than the uses suggested in their link. I did not see a rating listed. Overheating is the concern/potential fire risk. For reference, I run a 1500 watt heater camping and the recommended rating for a power cord is 2,000 watts.

See this, rated at 1875 watts,

What are the pros and cons of this Costco deal in comparison to the Kasa smart outdoor plug sold during the last Prime day (22$).

Pros for the Prime Wifi Outdoor Outlet comes in a 2 pack vs the single pack for the Kasa Plug, so essentially it's half the price.

According to the https://templates.blakadder.com/ these outlets are Tuya compatible if you want to replace the firmware with Tasmota or another local based firmware.

Cons
Maybe the form factor, the Kasa have a flexible cord which might allow it to fit into some tight spaces.
Some people might prefer the Kasa software app if you're not going to replace the firmware. I have some regular TP-Link outlet its decent

I think this is in Costco East, I don't recall seeing this deal West, but I could be wrong though

The prime plug has a flexible cord too.

Tasmota is deal breaker for me. Will return Kasa one. Thanks

Bought these last year to use on our outdoor xmas lights and they were great!. I have lots of kasa stuff already but got this 2 pack for like 15$ last year so I went for it at the price forba 2 pack.

22.99 is still a great price. Might get another set for lights in my shed.

Are you sure they are wifi? Because I saw the regular timers for 17.99 in Boisbriand. I found the wifi ones near the electronics section and they were the same price as OP.

I just bought these from Costco. Was anyone able to OTA flash them to Tasmota with tuya-convert? It looks like they may have new firmware that prevents this. Mine was manufactured 08/20.
Popping it open via screws shows it has the same serial headers, so that is an alternative method.

If I can flash this with my own firmware can't someone take my outdoor plug and learn my WIFI credentials?!

I see what seems like a SIRI icon on the product. Is this product HOMEKIT certified?

Hi parafilm, any idea if the independent control of both outlets are retained once I flash with Tasmota?

I don't have the outlet yet but looking at picking it up this week. But I believe if you flash with tasmota you'll be able to control each outlet separately if you could do it before in their own app.

I have a different indoor dual outlet plug that I'm able to control separately.

Under specifications on the link you shared yourself to the Prime product page, it says it is rated for 1875 watts.

The app sucks and i wish i bought the TP-Link instead.

Functionally its fine, some odd connection hiccups here and there, just dont attach anything important to it. I have christmas lights on mine.
