Energy Consumption is something we should all be aware of. By using an Energy Saving Surge Protector you can put your mind at ease knowing the devices you aren't currently using, aren't wasting energy. With an Energy Saving Surge Protector your main device is plugged into what is called a "Master" plug, and your "Secondary" devices are plugged into the others. When your "Master" device is turned off, the power to the other devices is turned off as well. This prevents Standby Loss, which normal Surge Protectors have. Standby Loss is when a device is plugged into an outlet and not being used, but those devices are still having a small amount of power being sent to them.
Energy Saving Surge Protectors can be purchased online, or at your local hardware store.
