3 Cheers for Advanced Power Strips


Phantom power has been secretly haunting you for years. But, thanks to advanced power strips, you and your electric bills can finally relax.

  1. Lower bills. Advanced power strips save you money by reducing phantom power, which is energy used while your electronic devices are switched off. You know those little glowing lights on many of the electronic devices in your home? That's phantom power, and it can add up to $120 a year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

  2. Added convenience. In the past, you had to unplug all of your electronic devices to stop phantom power, then plug them back in. That's a lot of work. With advanced power strips, you just turn off the control device with a remote, and everything connected to it turns off too. And, the advanced power strip cuts all power to every device, so there's no phantom power. Finally, you can turn them all back on with the touch of a button.

  3. Low-cost solution. Advanced power strips are relatively inexpensive and they last a long time. There are no fancy apps necessary with advanced power strips. Most models just plug into a normal outlet and you can plug your devices in like any other power strip, except it's more advanced.

So, let's hear it for advanced power strips and their phantom power busting abilities.
