The electricity used by everyday objects can be surprising. Even when electronics and appliances aren’t in use, many still draw electricity just from being plugged in. The Watts It Cost energy meter is portable and easy to use. Simply plug it into a standard outlet and then plug different electronics and appliances into the energy meter to show how much electricity is being used.

The Watts It Cost energy meter helps identify which electronics and appliances are power hogs.
It also lets you figure hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or yearly costs for running an appliance. The energy meter is great for electronics, like computers or TV, that don’t come with stickers indicating their yearly electronic cost.
