Broadlink MP1 is a $20 WiFi Power Strip with 4 Independent Sockets

There are plenty of WiFi sockets going around such as Broadlink SP2 or Kankun KK-SP3, but in some cases it might be both more convenient and cheaper to get a WiFi power strip, and Broadlink MP1 offers just that with 4 sockets that can be controlled and programmed (timer) independently, and sold for just $19.88 on Banggood.

Broadlink_MP1Broadlink MP1 specifications:

  • Connectivity – 802.11b/g/n WiFi, controllable over 3G/4G with smartphone
  • 4 multi-standard (EU/US/AU, but not UK) sockets
  • Power input – 10A/250V (max)
  • Power output – 10A/250V (max)
  • Rated power – 2000W Total
  • Misc – Power button
  • Dimensions –  254mm x 60mm x 32mm; 50cm sockets spacing; cord Length – 1.5m with AU plug (Adapter provided for other countries)
  • Weight – 450g

The power strip can be controlled via Broadlink ihc (Intelligent Hone Control) app available for Android and iOS, which lets you independently manually turn on or off or set timers for each sockets. You can also use IFTTT to control the sockets, but it may require Broadlink SC1 “housekeeper”.  There does not seem to be an easy way to control the power strip with a computer.


The strip is also sold for around $25 and up on Aliexpress, GeekBuying and GearBest [Update: Now $19.78 promo]. It’s been around for a few months already, but I have not found any hacks yet, and could not find the processor used in the strip. However I know it’s likely not running OpenWrt and there’s no SSH access. Reading further, I did find another model, Broadlink MP2, with 3 power sockets, and 3 USB ports that’s said to be based on a Mediatek solution, and sold for $27.59.

More information can be found on Broadlink MP1 and MP2 pages (in Chinese only).
