Just the thing for the present times. Its surprising what some set top box's use on standby. Even more surprising is the power some PC base units use when switched off./
#2
Flawed product unless it allows for mutli-tiered pricing.
#3
How does this compare with the Daily Mail offer??
#4
Thanks, been looking for one of these.

the products are totally different, this item only measures the electricity coming through one socket. it'll be more accurate than the daily mail offered one.

on the other hand the daily mail one measures instantaneous usage for your ENTIRE HOUSE so gives a better idea of how much it costs to run an electric cooker or shower, and your lights - something you couldn't do with this meter here. if you don't mind collecting the vouchers I'd strongly recommend the version from the newspaper.

I don't know the details of how electricity is charged but the description does say

* Find out how much an appliance costs to run by inputting the latest £/unit information
* Can set 2 prices per kW/hr (standard and economy/night saver)

Is this not what you are looking for?

My PC units consume zero power when switched off :?

Mine consumes 8W unless unplugged.

LCD display shows consumption in kW/hrs, amps, volts
How do you measure consumption in Volts??
#9
it measures consumption in Kwh
amps
volts
note that it is not Kw/h rather Kwh, what it realy measures is the instantaneous power usage in Kw

My PC units consume zero power when switched off :?


mine consume approx 14.7w for the tower and 9.8w for the monitor when switched off, but zero when switched off at the wall - this was the point being made, i believe, in case anyone thought it was a typo...

Is it too late to start collecting the Daily Mail vouchers? What's the offer they have? (sorry if it's posted elsewhere - send me packing if it is!)

Not a bargain. You'd need to be an idiot not to know just what power your electrical goods use (it's on the userguide, instructions or the item info).

We should all move back to caves and then we could start fires with all these foolish items.

foolish or simply to poor to buy everything brand new thereby not having the user guides:whistling:

Perhaps you can tell me how much power my home built PC uses then?

How about with disks spun down/monitor off/standby/hibernation?

What about my webserver on its UPS - can you tell me how much power the UPS wastes (power in - power out)?

I find these devices extremely useful, and this is a good price (paid more than that for my last one, and that was with some hunting)!

Calm down mate,.. maybe you should go live in a cave then. :-D
The rest of us will get this cheap meter and try to save a bit of much needed money!

Blimey...It's been 30 years since I did physics but your house voltage will remain at 220-240 Volts AC...

Watts = Volts x Amps and V=IR and all that malarky. You should be able to look up the energy efficiency rating if you have make and model.

Your PC power input (the PSU) will also have the wattage visible on it, 550W etc when running at full whack although the heat isn't completely wasted as it will warm you tootsies. While you can't destroy energy, it's converted to another form that will hemorrhage away from you regardless :whistling:

userguide, instructions give the max power used by your electrical goods ie 600w pc power supply is not using 600watts all time it would turn pc into electric fire washing machine does not have heater on all time and motor fully loaded fridge compressor not running all time LCD TV how bright the backlight sound level CRT TV only consumes max with pure white pic full contrast bightness and sound output uses a lot less on normal setting found this out with this foolish item?? nearly all items are like this only realy fires and kettls are a constant consumpion even these vary a bit because voltage varys a bit throughout the day so this foolish item item can be quite usefull

25W (PC) :)

9W is the kind of standard for most things on standby though. Suprising that even my speakers use that much!

So I guess that makes you an idiot because your userguide doesn't tell you how much your appliances use in standby?
What does your PC userguide tell you it uses?
The full wattage of the PSU? :roll:

I'm sure you don't even know. Before you go opening your mouth classing people who have one or are getting one of these as idiots have a think or at least research/know what you're talking about.

Thanks
