Just four of highly cynical questions:

1. I've got electricity meter installed for free by electricity provider. Is this more accurate than theirs?
2. I know my electricity consumption from my bill that provider is carefully sending me every month. Again, how is this device more accurate?
3. It claims and how much harmful C02 emissions you are contributing to the environment. Can they also specify how much harmful CO2 and other substances were produced during manufacturing process of this device?
4. Are they aware than manufacturing and improper disposal of batteries (and this device need 6 of them!) is increasing pollution?

Sorry but I feel that this device more harmful to the environment rather than 'greener'. Sounds like blatant exploitation of GlobalWarming™ craziness.

Voted cold.

Just think how much money I'll save by not spending £63.45 on something that CANNOT be accurate!!

It allows you to monitor usage on a 6 second basis if you want. Consequently you can spot when heaters come on and how much different electrical equipment is using. So you can turn the thermostat down, put your PC into power saving etc and monitor the cost.

I speak from experience of this product and have found it genuinely useful for spotting high energy usage and moving devices such as tumble dryers and washing machines to timed usage for cheaper night units.

I think arguments about the green cost of batteries and it's manufacturing are a bit weak when we are all tapping away at computers which cause a great deal of pollutiion in their creation, use and destruction. I agree with the band wagon and global warming panic griping the nation at the mo though.

Global Warming is hyp!!! Look back in history can you'll find that weather pattern like this happened. Carbon gases do not affect the ozone layer because they cannot rise that far up. Govenments love to have us in a panic so that they can monitor our reaction to crisis.

If you want monitoring of specific devices it is much cheaper to use something like this. Much cheaper and you can measure consumption of that particular appliance. As to heaters, for the same money you can buy good thermostat and controller, which is much more efficient way of saving money.

You could buy white goods with built in timer instead and run it at night. No one need such montor for this, just talk to your electricity provider and ask'em at what TOD cheaper tariff is available. Not rocket science, isn't it?

It is not weak at all. We have computers regardless of buying such device. Any pollution created in manufacturing such meters is simply an addition to existing pollution.

Sorry, still not convinced that this device has any use at all.

I'm not convinced that this is anything but a 'Gadget'. Seems like an expensive gadget as well.

I have a plugin electricity meter from Maplin(about £13) which shows Watts, Amps, Volts, KWH etc. I found that, for example, even though my printer was switched off, it was still drawing about 9 watts electricity if it was connected to the mains.
This meter has been useful for me to monitor usage and I believe as a result of the changes we have made in our house, we have recouped the cost of this monitor in about 3 months...

:thumbsup: Now that does sound interesting.

Can you get any more info on it please :-D

My meter is down a dark hole somewhere and I don't venture there very often. I need something more accessible that I could see. More likely to make changes that way. :oops:

Voted hot for discussion, not the product

Recent programme on ch4 showed volcanoes spewed out more CO2 than mankind does, not to mention all sorts of other non man made stuffs.

This green enviromental stuff = excuse to tax us and to start new range of green crap to spend our money on.

I don't mind recycling, we're running out of landfills, oil alternatives needed as we're running out, but stop all this enviromental hug the earth crap please.

Was that the item?

Looks decent to test things induvidually but suspect costs 99p to produce so will wait if it gets cheaper.

Simple rules though like turn off stuff you are using don;t depend on standby for most of your devices, unplug your mobile chargers when not using them etc. You don't need overrpriced green products/gadgets to be wise with your electricity usage and lower your usage.
