    How is this remotely efficient? Useful, yes. Ingenious, sure. Efficient? It looks like it uses way more material than a normal power strip.

    And it certainly shouldn’t be filed under “Power Saving Devices”.

    According to PGE website. Vampire power drain can be as much as 10% of your power consumption. SO it makes sense to have a power saving device for your home theater and your desktop station. There are several “smart powerstrip” you can see online.
    Which one is the most efficient is hard to tell unless there is some testing done. I hope you test them side by side to tell which one saves the most.
