Essential Info

If you are using or plan to purchase the PC TrickleSaver you may want to consider the PC TrickleSwitch as an Accessory. The TrickleSaver turns PC USB peripheral devices Off when you turn your PC Off and On when you turn your PC On. The TrickleSwitch takes energy savings a step further. It attaches to the TrickleSaver, and allows you to turn all of your PC USB peripheral devices On and Off manually at anytime while your PC is On - simply press the button on top of the TrickleSwitch. By allowing you to manually switch PC USB peripheral devices On/Off and to supply power to them only when required, you can significantly reduce the amount of 'vampire power' consumed when your PC is On. This is especially helpful for those that put their PC in standby mode, in which case the USB is still active and wouldn't turn off the switched outlet. The TrickleSwitch connects directly to a PC via a standard USB connector and a PC TrickleSaver plugs into a USB connector on the product.

Important Notice
DO NOT connect any PC accessory devices to the PC TrickleSaver (sold separately), which should not be Switched Off by removing the power from while the PC is On. This includes devices such as External Hard disk(s) and other devices which need to be securely powered down while the PC in On.

    Despite the confusing wording saying that this works with USB peripherals, it ONLY works with the TrickleSaver device. It can't be used on its own to simply turn a USB-powered device such as a flash card or keyboard on and off. The power is switched but no data connection is passed through.

    I was highly doubtful about the possibility of this little gadget actually working. But work it did. First time, right out of the box. And I am a tech-dunce.
