Review of "Lime Green Energy Saver Plug"
I've used one of these energy saving plugs on a cable TV receiver for a while now. The receiver gets very warm even when on standby and that got me thinking how much power it was using. Having looked at the reviews of the unit online it seems that it uses upto 75% of its normal power consumption in standby!I wasn't having that waste of electricity, so I've grabbed one of the Lime Green saver plugs.
You plug it in, press the button on the unit, which puts it into 'program mode'. This means you point your devices remote control at the little receiver connected by a cable to the plug and choose a button you'd like to turn the power on and off with. I just used the power button, but the choice is yours!Once you have done that, you can turn the power completely off or on via that button on your remote control.
The receiver comes with a little sticky pad so that you can attach it somewhere around the device or out of the way under your TV or whatever. It doesn't have to be absolutely 'line of sight' of the remote control but it helps. Consider it the same as changing a channel on your TV with your remote control.
