I am somewhat obsessed in tracking down and finding unwanted and phantom electric usage around the house. With the rising cost of energy, I am working on justify moving to a more renewable energy source, but first I need to understand how I use energy. That way, I can determine grid-tie or off-grid approach is better. Or simply, to supplement during power outages.
This device is basic, but does exactly what you need. The only drawback is that you need to keep it plugged in to check all the measurements as it has no “off power” memory like its bigger (more expensive) brother. The EZ model. But, I did not see a need for the increase cost, and as I understand, you still need to plug that one back in in order to retrieve the data anyway.
Usage is simply, though some tips.
1) Plug the device you want to measure into the Kill-A-Watt monitor first, then into the outlet. The monitor will start recording as soon as it is plugged in. You may only be talking a couple of seconds, but sometimes I find it just made things easier to do in the end.
2) The plug fit on the monitor is a little “snug”. Part of the reason I plug the appliance into the monitor first. That way I am not fussing when reaching into those hard to reach areas.
3) If you are just wanting the standard Watt/kWh usage (like say for your router/modem, coffee machine or TV when in power on state). Do wait until the appliance has completed its power-up before taking a reading. However, remember that in order to get a true kWh reading, you are best to let it monitor for a full 24 hours.Read more ›
We needed the sump pump to work & run the fan on the Natural Gas fire place to heat the house . Thanks to Kill a Watt I made an educated decision that a 1200 watt generator would keep our home safe from water damage & give us enough heat with out spending a fortune on a fancy generator . With funds limited we survived a 40 hr, outage .
My only disappointment was that all the collected info disappears when you unplug the monitor - there's no "memory" feature, and it's sometimes difficult to see the readout if the unit is plugged in behind an appliance or in a floor outlet (just put a small extension cord between it and the outlet). But for $25, this is still a great buy, a great conversation piece, and something your friends and neighbours will all clamor to borrow (if you ever finish testing all your appliances!)
Can be hard to read when plugged into the wall, and looses all measurements when it is unplugged.
Friends want to borrow it to check their appliances.
Must have for geeks!

It's very good, problem is that it's HUGE and takes allot of my other outlets, specially if I have a 6 outlet box. But other than that, it's great!Published 3 days ago by leo
works like it's suppose to. I wish it had a reset button so you don't have to unplug to reset.
It was 3 days late though on delivery!
Easily tells me the power draw of my rackmount servers before I send them out to the colocation facility. Prrtty easy to operate - I never even opened the manual.Published 1 month ago by Chuck F
