I recently had the opportunity to try an earth friendly product from the wonderful company Belkin. How would you like to know how much energy an appliance uses or how much money it costs you to use it? Well, Belkin has created the perfect device that does just this, it’s called the Conserve Insight Energy Use Monitor. This simple plug-in monitor can tell you the cost of operation, watts, and the amount of carbon dioxide produced in generating the electricity consumed.
This thing is super handy! I mean it can help you determine which of your devices wastes the most energy and money. I was surprised to learn how much energy and money my electronics use. My laptop uses a pretty good amount. However, it’s a 17-inch screen, too. I will say at the very least you can have some fun just going around your house trying out your various electrical items. You simply plug the device into the outlet and then plug your appliance/device into the monitor. Then, you look at the screen. It can’t get any simpler!
