When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

TP-Link HS100 Smart plug out of stock

From reviews the TP-Link HS100 Smart plug looks like an excellent product to work with Echo, however the UK plug version is out of stock from all suppliers as far as I can see.

Has demand overwhelmed them, and is there a good alternative at a competitive price?

Yes, look for the upgraded version that is smaller (TP-LINK HS105 Smart Wi-Fi Plug Mini) and does not block the other outlet like the HS100 does.  It costs $10 more and is also in short supply.

Thanks Mike, I wasn't aware of this new model.

However due to the large size of UK plugs I suspect there won't ever be a UK version.

I expect CES 2017 will see a new generation of smart home products like this:

Not an Apple iOS issue for the TP Link smart plug, thank goodness.  I prefer to turn if off and on via Alexa; it happens a little quicker.  Two new model mini smart plugs are coming to us from Newegg -- Amazon said 1-2 months!  Newegg limits purchase to 2 mini plugs per order, so supply must be tight.
