It says it will turn off your peripherals automatically and works with the sleep mode function on computers. If it can actually save up to 260 watts per hour then sign me up. Grab one for $32.95.
If you want to know exactly how much power your devices are using then plug em into the Kill A Watt and see just how efficient or inefficient they are.

It’ll set you back $29.95.
