Minimizing the electricity drain of plugged-in items?
October 3, 2005 7:57 AM Subscribe
I recently read that anything plugged in continues to suck up valuable electricity, even when turned off. What's the best way to minimize this wasteful situation without constantly resetting/rebooting clocks,microwaves,tivos,answering machines,etc or constantly unplugging/plugging lights,cordless phones,tvs,stereos,etc?
Any special gadgets or outlet strips that will help? Other ideas?
