Lighted Power Cords?

Posted: January 24, 2011 in Being Green, Green Technology

This maybe a wonderful concept for those of us looking to reduce our electrical energy consumption if it will be applied to normal power cords (only for iPod at this time).  Reason why is that we have “vampire” electronics in our homes that even when turned off still use quite a significant amount of electricity (according to the attached article – that is 5-10% of the entire US energy usage).  By using these lighted power cords you can visually inspect to make sure they are not sapping up power (where you would normally have to hook up an inline voltmeter to tell).  Link to ArticleLink to lighted power cable for iPod/iPhone.
