Quality answer :-D

Cheapest I have seen these

So you find out how much energy it uses and then what?

You throw it away, and smug at how much you're saving.

You can be sure it wont use much power to run this..

Might get one be good to see what the TV uses on standby. I refuse to believe it is as wasteful as people make out ;-)

So you have to expend energy in one way or another to determine what you're using? Isn't that nonsensical and pointless?

Yeah but batteries also have a carbon footprint and cost ... and so the cycle continues! :cry:

Posting replies on this forum also costs carbon!

So I won't

My television uses between 90W and 210W when it's turned on, depending on brightness and backlight settings.

My energy monitor registers 0W (which means between 0.0W and 0.5W) in standby.

It's hardly the "upto 50%" that some people claim is it :-D

perhaps your energy monitor is not working correctly! You should buy another one, plug it into your original one and see if it is working.

Having said that I believe there was a particular model of slightly older Japanese set that used around 40W on standby!

For what it's worth our set uses about 3w on standby...about £4 per year I think.

May not sound a lot but add it to the cost on printers, PC's, dishwashers, microwaves, sat reveivers, PVR's, VCR's, Freeview boxes, cookers etc..etc all left on standby then it soon adds up!

I mean, you wouldn't chuck £50 in cash out the window but it's what you are effectively doing by leaving stuff on unnecessarily.

Does that mean the offer should include the £4 a year for running. :whistling:

I'd think it would only draw power from the batteries when it is not plugged in.

The 50% figure is a mis-representation. It's more like you watch your TV for 3 hours a day, in the other 21 hours on standby it will use 50% of the power that it did in those 3 hours of active use.

Might pop and get this - always wondered how much energy I waste.

Definately not telling the mrs though - is she found out what my enormous plasma uses it would cause me grief for years.

As for the dehumidifier plugged into my car.....

my samsung lcd uses
found out that my hifi wastes about £20 a year in standby though!

Visit your local library....BORROW these FREE, I didnt believe it myself :thumbsup:

The tab at the site says Household Essentials from 12.02. I take it that means it'll be a week before I get one to find out how much energy my commercial coffee machine chews through... oh well, I get to enjoy a few more cups before the guilt really sets in...
