    Default electrical saving thingy......

    i've come across this thing which you plugged it into your house hold electrical point. and it's supposed to help you save some electrical bills. do they really work? the cost per unit was around $100++. not sure exactly how much.

    any uses this thingy? does it really save you some monies?

    thanks in advance for any inputs.

    I thought they were just a myth? If they really worked, then everyone would use them.

    do we really need more gadgets to solve problems, den gadgets oso need power, spoil liao need to repair or replace. why need to spend $$ to save $$?

    do without those gadgets, i say. they're out to make a quick buck.

    Can plug on to my flash light.....?

    Actually saw it before, but don't really believe it, if it is so useful, NEA will promote this device to every household.

    thanks ben. wanted to know or hear the experience of users whether this stuff really works for normal hdb flat. the last time i saw it, it sounds good when you're have lots of motors eg. fans running at home. it's less useful for lightings to what i know.

    so, any experiences from CSers? anyone?

    1 2 save more electricity? check out the power consumption b4 buying. for light bulbs, go for more energy efficient 1s.

    ?? lumen / watt

    if at home switch on many stuff, logically it'll use more electricity. for those really keen, saving electricity should start even before a home is renovated (initial planning stage).

    In electrical power, apparent power (KVA) = active power (KW) + reactive power (KVAR).

    This device is said to reduce reactive power (KVAR). However, base on the link below:

    http://www.singaporepower.com.sg/pub...PR19_3405.html

    For domestic usage, household users are only charge for KW hour usage. The only way to reduce electrical charges is only to use appliances which are low in power consumption (lower the wattage as possible).
