Slaying Vampires Just Got Easier

vampireslayerI know that my electronic devices pull juice from my wall even when they aren't on. But I don't actually do anything about it. It's too much trouble. Somehow, power strips always seem to exist in the darkest, dustiest most remote corners of the unvierse. I would love to just pop the switch and kill the vampire, but I'm pretty sure I'd need elastic arms to do it without disassembling my desk.

Besides, why can't the powerstrip just do it for you? Well, thank you for asking, it can. This extremely simple device connects to your PC via a USB port and turns off all appliances running on it when the computer turns off. Your speakers, monitors, printers, scanners, all turn off with your PC!

It's a great idea, and an extremely useful one at that. Now, if we could only get the same thing working for every other appliance in the house.

There are a lot of these types of products on the market, but I have one question. Do you want your electronic devices to constantly loose their memory because you are pulling the power from them?
If you put it on a TV, it will likely make it revert to Channel 3 or 4 every time you turn it back on. If you put it on a computer, it will rely on its internal battery to keep the clock running, which will in turn deplete the battery and cause you to go buy a new one, which is probably worse for the environment.

Have you ever measured how much power your 'off' electronics are using? I bet you will find it is no prescription worth less than a buck or two a year.
