The Take Charge Smartstrip 8-outlet surge protector comes with one "Control" outlet which controls five "Switched" outlets, in addition to two "Always On" outlets. Power is completely shut from the "Switched" outlets when the "Control" appliance is turned off or goes into standby.

It's perfect for the home office with PCs, monitors, printers, and speakers. Just turn the computer off or set it to sleep/standby mode, and all peripheral devices will shut off completely. It's also excellent for home entertainment systems. Just plug the TV into the "Control" outlet and your DVD player, game console, and speakers to the "Switched" outlets to eliminate energy drain from energy vampires.

What is an "energy vampire"?

Sometimes known as "leaking electricity" or "phantom load", energy vampires refer to electrical appliances that "suck" electricity all night after they have been turned off or switched to standby mode.

Some scary facts for you

  •  10% to 20% of the total electricity consumption in your home is due to appliances plugged in on standby mode.
  •  Mobile phone chargers use 4 watts when charging a phone, 2 watts after the phone has been fully charged, and 2 watts when the charger is left on the outlet without the phone.

1 watt of standby power consumes about $1 per year. This might not seem like a lot, but when you have 40 or more appliances in your home drawing around 5 watts when they're off, the amount adds up quickly.

If you invested the $200 you spend on standby power anually, you could have around $24,000 in 30 years (at an average growth of 8%). Get one now!
