Killawatt power measuring wondertool of DOOM. or OH NO MY FRIDGE IS A SINNER
Take your tv to confession and buy a killawatt!! Spend $17 on this thing then start the fun. Plug your TV in to it. See how much power it is sucking while it is off? That is crazy AND makes the Pope sad. Now you have a few options to atone for your sins:
-go to confession
-Pick up some x10 gear and create a wireless power network that shuts all the offenders off while you are away.
-Hook major offenders up to cheap surge strips and turn things off that aren’t in use.
-Buy more efficient appliances
-Use that pesky light switch that controls a wall outlet for no good reason(until now) Leave the house? Flip the switch and kill power to the toaster, tv, and a few lamps. No reason to power the computer monitor or the automatic cat whacker if you aren’t around to see them work.
There is a way better one called Watt’s up pro. It will do a bunch of samples and connect to a pc. It costs $115.
