You’ve probably heard the term “Vampire Power”? It’s the power that some electronic devices “suck”, when they are plugged in, but not being used. One example of such a device is an AC adapter that charges your gadgets. In addition to being a huge waste of energy, Vampire power is something that you pay for on your electric bill each month. The OnPlug is a simple device that will allow you to switch the power off whenever you like. We’ve reviewed power strips with this type of feature, but the OnPlug goes where a power strip can’t. It’s less obvious and bulky than a large strip and has a base that lights up in Blue when power is being used. A small switch on one end gives you the ability to stop the suckage whenever you like. The OnPlug is available through Amazon for $11.99 each or $29.99 for a pack of 3.
