Fight the POWER!

By Holly Peterson

Phantom power haunts you as your appliances sleep. Depending on the type of device, it can suck up approximately 10% of your electricity bill. One option is to unplug everything that is not in use. But that answer requires not being lazy and causes minor back pain from crawling under tight spaces, and endless knee and elbow banging against sharp corners and edges. An easy alternative comes in the form of the Belkin Conserve Energy-Saving Surge Protector. The strip comes with a remote control that completely controls the flow of energy coming in and out of the appliances plugged into it. Two “Always On” outlets remain on the strip for items that, well, always need to be on (like phones and routers). Place the remote near your keys or lights and never forget to switch off your appliances again. It makes sense – more sense than fighting power you can’t even see.
