Most of the things we charge die early because we over-charge them. After you check out the Smart Strip at Bits Limited-Check out the Charging Station-it charges till charging is complete & turns itself off! Stop burning up batteries and vampire energy-you keep your money in your budget!

Thanks and have a great green day-please

Get yourself a “Smart Strip” and forget it! Check out this energy saving surge protector-it’s a very simple inexpensive way to go green and reduce both your vampire issue and your carbon footprint! This device reduces the typical computer station’s power usage by over 70%!!! Additionally, it will help at home on your TV & entertainment system, too. If everyone would get a Smart Strip we would reduce America’s carbon footprint by billions of tons.
You have to wonder why people would donate their money to the power company for power they’re not using——

And now that many electric and natural gas companies are taking out their traditional meters and replacing them with smart meters, more electric appliances willcost alot more money in power bills. But the good news for dog owners is the installation of the new smart meters in many places means the end of the meter reader coming to each house once amonth because the smart meters are remotely read from a central point 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

If I am not wrong, the developing countries more waster energy than the development countries. Main aspect is ‘cultures’. In other hand, for example, I’m cries, here, when seeing the kids to ride motorcycle, not bicycle. The men buy the cars by salary just enough to live on. The legislators paid the people and then corruption. Most of them want so fastest and instants. They have not planning…..
“We usually charge them right before going to bed”, is a nice sentence from you who explain the kind of family planning, a smallest unity of the best culture. Good article !!!

One is just waisting electricity on something that is just staying idle. Especially microwaves!!

Great post!

And I install power strips on computers, coffee makers, vcr, tv, and anything that has a clock. If I left all the clocks on in my kitchen, I would have five running.
I m ready to purchase a nice old fashion alarm clock, because I don’t like the glare of the light.

I also built a solar charged scooter, waiting for me this spring.
I could post a pic if i new how.
