Power consumption figures

Postby zzsstt » Wed Dec 09, 2009 10:29 am

In another thread I mentioned the possiblity of sharing data so we can learn what "works" without having to purchase a potentially useless item.

As a start to that process, I will post my measured power use figures for devices (both normal domestic items and any power saving gadgets I may investigate) in this thread. In the case of straight measurements of domestic items, I will add them to this post by editing, but for longer "reviews" I will make new posts.

Measurements are taken on a PowerMate. I will report use in kWh per year, for a varying load I will attempt an appropriate measurement to give kWh/year for normal usage when tested over 24 hours.

I encourage anybody who is interested to post their (measured) findings.
