I got two of these from B&Q a while ago, they're a bit fiddly to set up, but well worth it..voted hot :)

Nice - heat added.

I bought this Lidl one several years ago - works very well indeed. You give it your cost of electricity per kw/h (it even supports economy 7 rates after midnight) and it tells you exactly how much the appliance cost to run.

Similar to the Maplin deal in August, Hot!

The problem with these (if they are the same as mine) is that they do not measure consumption below 5W. This makes them useless for checking an awful lot of appliances.

Bought on of these some time ago,quite differcult to read the display!...Just wish they would make them with a backlit display.

But then that will use more electricity?:thumbsup:

Surely, if the appliance is using less than 5W it isn't going to make too much of an impact on your electricity bill?

You want to hook this up to your kettles, tumble driers, immersion heater, computers, hair driers & hair straightners to scare the wotsits out of your wife & kids!!!!!

Make it So!

I think you mean 5W :)

You're confusing power consumption with energy consumption. An appliance using less than 5W, left on all day, can easily consume more energy than a high-powered appliance used infrequently. And you are likely to have quite a few of these if you are the type who leaves things on standby and mobile phone chargers plugged in all the time.

Thanks for spotting the typo!!!!! :whistling:

But, accepting your point, in the "real world" it will be these items that will kick you in the teeth on your electicity bill & not a phone charger left plugged in overnight!

Yup - it is measuring the flow of current through it so it needs an independent power supply to work the monitor itself ... but the monitor has a very low power consumption so the battery should last quite a while.

I don't think that's the reason - it works quite happily without batteries. Batteries allow it to remember its settings while it's unplugged so that it can accumulate the amount of energy used by several appliances, and it might have a clock on it too - I don't remember.

common sense should tell u wot is gulping power, i.e. dishwashers, washing machines etc.

There are a lot of people who have no idea how much anything takes - just witness the number of people who chuck all their washing in the tumble drier without a thought, when they've got a perfectly good washing line. And as I've already said, things that don't consume so much can still waste an awful lot of energy when left on all day. Perhaps people might start to wake up to the reality of standby vs switching things off properly. In turn, manufacturers might come under more pressure to reduce standby current wastage then they are at the moment.

Actually if this is the one in the picture then it does measure below 5 watts, it can even measure 0w :) I think lidl were selling these for £5 a couple of years ago, which was when i bought mine.

Thank you - mine must be older still, then.

I used mine to convince my wife & daughters what they were using in electricity with their gadgets!!!
(Common sense is not in abundance there!!!!) :thumbsup:

Up until then they just thought it was me having a bit of a moan!

This does only measure down to 5W ( 0.02 amps ) :(
