Multitap with a Difference

The Multi Saving Power Strip is a very helpful concept that keeps a tab on the devices plugged in, their power consumptions and electricity wastages. With monetary representation of individual sockets and the whole collective bill, it works a good guilt trip on your no-so-conservational-ways! I love the attention to detail in this strip, for example if there is an overload of gadgets, the circuit rings glow red as a warning sign. I’d buy one if it were available.

    Good idea to avoid energy waste, but still looking like others plugs on the market…

    Ironic, don’t you think, that this is a system with the intent to save power by use of power consuming devices (the LEDs). But a nice thought.

      LED light bulbs literally use about 8 watts, and that’s not even a bulb, that’s like a single LEF so no. Not really ironic considering a normal light uses around 70. LEDs a literally the cheapest way of creating light.

    I do not think that the round shape will work in America. Brilliant design, though you might want to use ePaper instead of leds to save even more energy.

    i think its not applicable to the most of the plugs

  • Hunter says:

    Wouldn’t it be better to illuminate the plugs that are NOT in use? The point is be able to find the damn thing at night…

    Also, how does it know how much my power costs?
