Tasmota Flash Blitzwolf SHP7 Plug
Blitzwolf SHP7 is a dual socket 16A rated WiFi controllable plug, with individual switches for each socket. It can be purchased for 14USD on Banggood. It is based on the ESP8285 MCU. Works flawlessly with the Tasmota firmware.
I recommend doing an inspection and applying solder where there are weak spots or blank tinned copper pads, e.g. between the relay raiser board and copper bridges.
Download the Esptool to erase and flash the Tasmota firmware.
Change the right serial-port, e.g. /dev/tty.usbserial-A98AVCSI

Now, unplug and plug-in the ground pin from the serial-adapter to reset the ESP MCU. If the following step does not work, try disabling the 3V3 pin instead - as the sudden external power up might not put the MCU in the upload right state.

Connect to the device over Wifi as any regular Tasmota device and configure the template to the following:
It provides two toggle input, mains voltage and total VA/VAr/Watt usage for the device.
