Nail 'em power guzzlers with the Cost Controller Power Strip


If you've had the feeling that perhaps all’s not well with your monthly electricity bill, then there are two things you have to do. First, smack yourself for not making your home sufficiently energy-efficient. And second, get yourself the Cost Controller Power Strip to individually single out those appliances that are gobbling up electricity.

This power strip with surge protection displays the power consumption of each device (rating 8-1800W) connected to it in terms of kilowatt-hour via a large LCD display. So you can configure the strip to monitor energy consumption by the hour, day, week or month, and then determine the exact nature of the energy bleed. If you are still hungry for more statistics, use the strip to measure the voltage, line frequency, and power factor of the input power. A basic necessity for geeks, this one. Available from ComputerGear for $100.
