Plenty of electricity gets wasted by devices that are left plugged in when not in use. One of the easiest ways to prevent all the cost and pollution that results? This timed outlet that cuts power after a set amount of time.
Maybe you leave your cell phone plugged in all night, but it only takes a couple hours to charge. A switch on the side of the Belkin Conserve lets you select 30 minutes, 3 hours, or 6 hours of power, after which the electricity stops flowing. The timer can also be an extra way to ensure appliances like coffee makers or curling irons aren’t left on longer than intended.
