This is my first post so please don't slaughter me !

I have just bought two of these plus additional sensors for the school I work at as a site manager so the kids can monitor the energy use for the buildings( the reason I needed additional sensors is that the E2 can monitor 3 phase supplys) as we are working toward an energy efficiency award.

If you spend over £50 then you can use the Voucer code " secret4 " and save £4 !
Maplins are also doing free shipping over £35 at the moment so I don't think this is a bad deal !

The e2 is the latest development in wireless electricity monitors.The e2 allows you to download your energy consumption data to your PC. This makes it very easy to track your energy usage and the impact of the changes you make on your consumption and electricity bill.


The memory function stores your energy data so you can view it by day, week or month or as an average. You can even view hourly data over the previous 8 months.


The e2 also tracks your CO2 emissions, calculating the carbon footprint generated by your electricity usage.

I got one for free from BG. Did you know those monitors use electricity? This is a joke. Why would I want to pay extra if I can just read the meter. You can have mine.

I had a similar thing and found it effectively useless, it broke in the end and I won't waste money on another unless it can turn off unused lights/televisions/stereos/heaters/computers, stop full kettles being boiled three times to make one cup of tea, close doors/windows/curtains when it's cold etc etc etc If you have someone in the household who refuses to have the common sense to do such things then showing them how much energy they're wasting won't make any difference at all.

Very good points. This is reality.

Just wait - the government has mandated that every house in the UK will have a Smart Meter fitted - these will measure both Gas and Elec, unlike these devices which only measure Elec. In addition these things have been shown to be upto 15% inaccurate compared to the actual usage, and they clip over your current wiring inside your meter box.

The downside of this mandation from the government is that the industry will need to spend over £6bn to roll this out and the only people paying for it will be you and me - so any savings you could make will likely be eaten up in the charge to pay for this.

Best thing to do - if you aren't using something switch it off - there you go, you have saved energy :)

A number of Elec Suppliers are giving them away for free too.

And I would lay a bet that they will include a feature to allow real-time "market" rates for electricity, the higher the demand for electricity at any given time the higher the price you will be charged. The government and industry have shockingly failed to deal with the problem of energy production in the near future. The closure of nuclear plants and moves to reduce carbon emissions, amongst other things, mean that very soon there won't be enough supply to meet consumer demand. So smart meters are most likely more about trying to save government from inevitable failure than reducing CO2 emissions or saving money for consumers.

I bought an Efergy monitor and it has highlighted to me where I have been wasting hundreds of pounds. Found out that the oil filled storage heaters i was using were costing me a fortune. I always knew they wernt cheap but not that expensive.

By hitching up the devise and testing certain appliences and how much load is hitting the meter has paid for the device already.

So with that in mind...:thumbsup: good deal.
