The EcoStrip is a power strip and surge protector for your computer and connected devices (printer, scanner, external hard drive) with one important difference: when you shut down the computer, everything else plugged into the EcoStrip is also shut down. This saves energy and saves you money! There's no programming necessary - you don't even need to turn the EcoStrip off.
According to the Department of Energy, http://www.energy.gov/applianceselectronics.htm, many appliances continue to draw a small amount of power when they are switched off. These "phantom loads" (or vampire power) occur in most appliances that use electricity, such as televisions, stereos, computers, dvd players, phone chargers and kitchen appliances. Block "vampire power" by turning them all the way off with the EcoStrip! One EcoStrip can save up to $150 per year (depending on how many electronics are plugged into the EcoStrip and for how long you turn off your computer every day).
