I bought the ZigBee Metering Plug from LELLKI. On the manufacturer’s shop page they state that it measures electricity consumption, there is even a screenshot of the Smartthings app.

Meanwhile, after pairing with the hub, I have no energy meter option. Am I doing something wrong that I don’t have this option? Or is the manufacturer misleading by writing untruths?

No, there is no edge driver - see the screenshots. Although there is a placeholder, it does not use a local driver.
I wrote to the shop, they advised me to change the DTH to “ZigBee Metering Plug”, but then although the measurement option showed up, it still didn’t measure anything. In addition, it stopped working from the app - I couldn’t turn it on or off.
It is working locally now, I can switch it on & off, but unfortunately the energy monitor is not working…
I plugged in the hairdryer to get a quick high reading, but it’s been running for a few minutes and… nothing. It doesn’t refresh the data.
On top of that I still have some 4 kWh reading that I have no idea where it came from.
It may be a case like a TS011F switch that I bought from AliExpress. It also happened to other users too.
It has the necessary clusters 0702 y 0B04 to report power and energy, but it must have bad firmware and it doesn’t support the necessary attributes.
To see if it is the same case I would need to see the pairing logs with the CLI.
You can try to reboot the hub from the IDE, but I don’t have much hope.
If you have already tried with the DTH zigbee switch power and it does not report power and energy either, then it is a device that does not work well
