Amazon has dropped the price on this Wi-Fi Range Extender Smart Plug from TP-Link, bringing the price down to just $36.13. This is typically priced at $59.99, making it a great time to pick up a range extender, if you are in need of better Wi-Fi range in your home.
This product from TP-Link is actually a fairly interesting one. It is essentially two products – that TP-Link already sells – in one. It's a Wi-Fi Range Extender but also a Smart Plug, which is why it's part of the Kasa lineup (Kasa is TP-Link's smart home lineup). So you can plug this in, and get better Wi-Fi range in your home, over a 2.4GHz network only, as it does not support 5GHz networks. And also have a smart plug available. Now it's worth mentioning that when you use the Kasa app to turn on or off this smart plug, it will not turn on or off the range extender, only the appliance that is plugged in – like a lamp or something. It has an ethernet port on the side, which allows you to get a wired connection away from your router, which can really come in handy as well. The Kasa app is available on Google Play for free and uses Android 4.1, it also works with iOS for those with iPhones and/or iPads as well.
