The Brennenstuhl PM 230 is one of the latest generation of go-green products.

"The Brennenstuhl PM 230 is one of the latest generation of go-green products. While I don't consider myself to be an eco-warrior, reducing the amount I have to fork out to the power company seems like a good idea especially after recent hikes of around 15%.

Quick review of Brennenstuhl PM 230 Power and Energy Monitor

"This product has a poor sensitivity. It is unable to measure low energy consumptions of waking devices such as my TV or my Hi-Fi system. It was also unable to detect any battery-charge consumption of my mp3-player and merely displayed "0.00". I couldn't find the limit of detection, but I could see nothing lower than 10W.
