Upgrade to a USB Surge Protector from EcoStrip Today
When buying a surge protector, the average homeowner simply buys the most affordable one they can find. This is not a bad strategy if all you are concerned about is power surges, but there are other concerns to keep in mind when thinking about the power setup of your home office. If you want further control over the electricity going to and from your computer's peripheral devices, you may wish to consider a USB surge protector from EcoStrip.
With a USB surge protector, you address one of the most wasteful forms of energy consumption, often called "vampire power". For example, when you are done with your computer for the evening and you are getting ready for bed, you might shut down your computer. However, if you leave it plugged in, then you will not stop using electricity throughout the night. While you sleep, you will be adding to your electricity bill because the computer's peripheral devices are still consuming electricity ? especially if you leave it on standby power. Some people address this issue by unplugging the computer and its devices from the outlet. But this is often forgotten, or it can be inconvenient, depending on the location of your outlet.
EcoStrip has developed a smart power strip ? a USB surge protector that detects when you shut down your computer. When it finds that the computer is off, then it will cut the power source from anything that is plugged into it, such as printers, monitors, and speakers. So it not only creates a barrier from power surges like a normal surge protector for your computer, but it also creates a barrier from vampire power consumption. This makes the USB surge protector to be a very green power strip.
