In our digital, gadget age, every night we plug in our phones, ipods, ipads, battery chargers, you name it.  But, did you know, once those devices are charged, they continue to suck power from ‘the grid’ – costing you more money that it needs to.

Add to that other electrical devices around the house that continue to drain your pocket book.

Here’s a gadget that might interest you.  It’s a programmable power-strip.

How long, on average, does it take to recharge your phone?  Set the power-strip and it will turn off when your phone is done charging.  No more extra drain.

You may not find it significant but if you add up the number of electrical devices you have in your home – over a year, it adds up to some decent cash.

I found one at Westside Wholesale for $30 and another at Amazon for $15.
