Knowing how much electricity you’re using is the best way to identify ways of saving energy. There are a number of energy monitoring devices now, such as the Kill-A-Watt device and the energy detective. The Kill-A-Watt Electricity Usage Monitoring Power Strip expands on the Kill-A-Watt device, allowing you to monitor a range of gadgets and applicances at the same time.
The advantage of tracking energy usage for a range of appliances at the same time is because we tend to use a number of gadgets at once. Good examples include using a DVD player with the TV, or a monitor and scanner with a PC. The Kill-A-Watt Power Strip (PS) will tell you energy usage at any given time and forecast the cost of running those devices for the day, week, month and year. That makes it really easy to determine how much your devices are costing you.
The Kill-A-Watt PS also has a number of other advanced features such as checking the quality of your mains power by monitoring voltage, line frequency, amperage, leakage and a few other things too. It’s basically just like having a multimeter connected to your gadgets all day long. The Kill-A-Watt PS also has a blue backlit display, which means you’ll be able to read your meter in the dark. Really useful if you’ve switched off your lights to save energy!
The Kill-A-Watt PS is particularly suited to enthusiastic gadget owners who want to keep an eye on their energy bills. It provides simple and advanced features that should keep any eco-warrior amused for hours.
