Killing Vampires Pesky Energy Drainers
06 27

Did you know that a cordless drill charger typically drains about five watts, even when it’s not recharging a tool? This is just one example of hundreds of “vampire” power devices that contribute to household energy waste. All you have to do is look around your bedroom at night after the lights are off to identify these energy sucking vampires. Fortunately, new products are hitting the market that address phantom power. New chargers and power strips that automatically shut down when the main device is clicked off, as well as outlets for devices that require continuous power, are becoming available – it just takes a little research to find them. All consumers can take personal responsibility to make changes that will minimize sources of phantom energy.
