Just wanted to confirm, these can't be flashed via Tuya convert to tasmota, or are these the older ones??

If in doubt, rather go for the Qualitel ones at R250 from BW. Those can at least be opened to flash directly if Tuyaconvert doesn't work. The cheaper ones look like they sealed, so likely very difficult to open if you want to flash. Of course, if you happy to stay in the Tuya ecosystem then it's much of a muchness
The tried and trusted method is to flash with a serial cable.Looking for some more smart plugs with power monitoring, I need these to be flashed with Tasmota. Any body got some models that still works with Tuya convert?
Something I learned on UK side...not sure if relevant for ZA: Plugs marked as 16A seem more likely to be flashable than 13A
Seems many brands simultaneously moved from ESP8266 based on something else and dropped the amps
Often with a silent substitution. Some of my old amazon orders now literally point to a different product so buy-again would get me one that doesn't work.
Do you think these guys like Sonoff and Tuya, will ever sell the plugs with OTA Firmware replacement allowed?
Seems crazy. I know they want to own their plugs and data, but the schlep we need to get to only use local control is a bit ridiculous, not to say that we invalidate the warranty immediately.
Just received some Shelley's (holy moly are they small) and hoping I won't need to flash them to tasmota as they have a MQTT, interface. Just wondering if it will still be calling home.
I got 2 of these Qualitel plugs, tried Tuya-convert but no luck. I opened it up and it does not look that easy to flash them as I am struggling to find the pins. They have them marked on the back of the circuit board but they are just small solder dots. Not easy at all to connect them.If in doubt, rather go for the Qualitel ones at R250 from BW.
