    I know what you mean. It’s not really reducing power consumption directly, but it makes you realize how much power is used by chargers working on standby mode thanks to LED lights showing the usage. It will make you either plug them out or simply switch the whole thing off.

    The goal when using it is to have the least amount of LED lights on. Dimming a light will use less power then having it on full brightness.

    Technically, if you are aware of your power consumption and diligent enough, this power strip is useless, but most of us aren’t. It’s a way of reminding us of that.
