Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Kill A Watt Meter: The Electricity Detector and Monitor can reduce your monthly electric bill and help you save a lot of money. You can now be a ’detective’ and ascertain what machines are actually worth keeping plugged in. Simply plug in the Kill A Watt meter, connect your appliances to it and Kill a Watt will assess how efficient they really are, showing you the watt-hours used.
Kill a Watt with large LCD display will count consumption by the kilowatt-hour, same as your local utility. With the help of Kill a Watt you can figure out your electrical expenses by the day, week, month or year on a given device. Kill a Watt can check the quality of your power by monitoring Voltage, Line Frequency, and Power Factor.
Now you'll know if it is time for a new refrigerator or if that old air conditioner is saving you money—compared to a new one—or not.
