Power strips are power savers.Plug in your appliances with clocks or stand-by settings, such as your microwave, TV, stereo unit, coffee pot, etc. so you can switch them all off at once when you leave the house and reduce the power they are using when you aren't even around. Try them in your office, on your kitchen counter, and in your entertainment center.
Cell phone power cords continue to pull significant amounts of power even when the phone is not attached.Unplug to save energy and money.
