TV TrickleSaver helps eliminate energy vampires


Now that I’ve hooked up my PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, debug Xbox 360, THX Makos, Verizon FiOS HD DVR, Slingbox Pro HD, Wii and an HDMI splitter to my ginormous 50-inch Panasonic G10 (plasma), I’m looking for ways to keep that electricity bill down.

Enter the TV TrickleSaver and its built-in current sensing circuitry that knows when your TV is on or off. When the boob tube is on all the accessories attached to it come to life and when it’s off they go into a deep coma. Simply plug the TV into the master power cord and everything else through a power strip into the slave and you’re good to go.

Sourcing a year old study, TrickleSaver puts up a compelling reason to throw down $35 to reduce the energy vampires lurking in your entertainment cabinet.
