Belkin Conserve Socket F7C009q Energy-Saving Outlet Review October 30, 2012

I am an amazon fanatic (if you haven’t noticed,) and I have fallen in love with amazons green page. Which is natural considering I write a green blog =p. So when I saw that they have a set of products designed to save energy with our plugs, I was immediately excited. This means around christmas time when my computer is not being used, this neat device will put it in power save mode. This is essential for me, because around this time of year my electric bill sky rockets. Even the rest of the year I can have peace of mind, and wont worry about shutting off each appliance. This is great for washers and dryers as well, which aren’t used all the time, but always plugged in. Check it out for yourself, I included consumer reviews as well so you can see which type of module would suit you best! =]

 

 

 

Consumer reviews: very helpful in deciding which product. =]
