This standby power, also know as "Vampire Power" or "Phantom Current" is costing you money even when you are not using your devices because they aren't truly off. By using a Smart Power Strip, you can save energy consumption by eliminating standby power, which also extends battery life and prevents then need to unplug your electronic components.
