Reduce your energy bills with the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector
Did you know that if you completely turn off your electronic equipment rather than leave them on standby mode, you can save as much as 20% on your energy bill? Well, apparently you can. But, despite knowing this, being the couch potato that I am, I really don't have the patience to switch off each appliance individually. The idea therefore, of having a device like the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector, is very appealing - with this device, you can shut off 6 devices at once just by flicking its remote.
The surge protector has 8 outlets, of which 6 can be controlled by a handy remote. Just stick the remote to any wall of your home and switch off the huge button on it - this will ensure that the devices connected to the surge protector are automatically shut down. Simple, isn't it? Well, my advice is - if you want to verify that the savings on your energy bill is really 20% - you should practice switching off unused appliances manually for a period of time. It might even save you the $50 that you might end up spending on the Belkin Surge Protector which is due to be released in May this year.
