Xbox and TV power consumption question

Found 9th Aug 2008
Hi I have been moaning at my lad for using his xbox all the time and one of the moans was cost of the leccy.
He has a Xbox 360 that uses 160 watts and a HD tele that uses 155 watts, in total 315 watts. Plus the use of the modem and router but as thats on all day I tend to ignore that. If my kw/h is 12p then is just 4p an hour for both correct?



Don't be such a tight ass !!

I am not I am trying to get him to do other things instead of sitting in front of the TV burning his eyeballs. I tell him he cant go on it due to this and that and as i said that was one of the moans but I didnt work the actual cost out.
I was surprised at how little it was so was asking if my calcs where correct.

make him pay you back by becoming a chimney sweep.
