I have a quick post today to tell you about this little gadget called “Kill a Watt Power Meter”. I was given this little gizmo that I can plug in any appliances to test to see how much electricity they are using, whether they are “ON” or “OFF”.
Yes, appliances use electricity even if they are “OFF” – it’s called Vampire Power. How appropriate, right? – sucks energy when you are sleeping…..get it? Never mind…
Anyway, we always unplug our computers, chargers, TV and other electronic appliances when we go away because of this reason. We have a back up battery pack that we just turn “OFF” so we don’t have to literally unplug every appliance.
So, Kill a Watt is a nifty plug-in gadget that shows you volts, Killowatt Hour (how many kilowatt the appliance uses in one hour), time, and the actual amount that you’d have to pay. So it lets you see what your electricity bill would be like even before you get it!
