This Gadget Girl has been in the market for a new power strip.  Working from a laptop in the den much of the time, I need a convenient place to plug in when the battery is low.  But with all the electronic devices we own today, outlets are at a premium.

I love the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector that Belkin sent me to review! Yes, it has a remote control and the geek in me loves anything with another gadget attached to it.  But this just makes sense.  The device has 8 outlets, 2 of which are “always on” for things like your phone and wireless routers.  The other 6 can be turned off, reducing power usage, for items like you TV, computer, monitor, scanner, printer…

I didn’t realize that most home electronics continue to use energy, even when you’ve turned them off. This wasted energy adds up not only on your electric bill but also in its impact on the environment.  Now turning off this “standby power” is easy…

No sticking your foot behind the couch or desk to turn off the switch…the remote control makes it that easy…”click”…

I love that it’s wall mountable too.  I’ll be getting another one for the computer station to keep the surge protector and cords off the floor in case someone “spills” their tea or something…wait, who would do that?

As an Earth Day Special, Belkin is offering $15 off this Conserve Power strip when purchased at
