Belkin Conserve Socket Review
In this video, MacMall takes a look at the Belkin Conserve energy-saving outlet. The outlet touts that it can help you save energy and reduce utility bills by managing the energy flowing to devices not in use.
On the side of the outlet, a small switch allows you to toggle how quickly power will be stopped from flowing to a device that is not in use. The switch lets you choose between 30 minutes, 3 hours, or 6 hours. For those of us who are horrible at unplugging everyday devices when they aren’t in use, an outlet like this can conserve considerable electricity over the course of the year. According to Belkin, adding this smart outlet to your everyday items could save you up to $100 per year in electricity costs, mitigating the cost of the device and leaving you with the satisfaction of knowing you’re reducing energy waste.
