Vampires beware, because Belkin has got a stake in hand that will put your power sucking ways to a steadfast end. The Conserve Surge with Timer isn’t as intuitive as TrickleStar’s gizmo, but still makes the grade for it’s green like ways.
There are a total of 8 outlets found in this surge protector, 6 of which that are connected to an 11 hour timer. You click the wired remote to activate the timer and once the time has expired, presumably long after your day at the office has ended, the device cuts power to those outlets, saving you and your company some pretty pennies on their electricity bill.
I would’ve liked to see a customizable timer, but at the very least the built-in LED indicator on the wired remote blinks when the shut down time draws close.
The Conserve Surge with Timer from Belkin costs $34.99 and based on their case study should pay for itself in no time flat.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
