Energy Conservation

Belkin Conserve Socket F7C009q

In this day and age we are all accustomed to the convenience of appliances that turn themselves on and off. A great help for people who are away from home most of the day.

We are equally familiar with rising energy costs associated with our home and the need to conserve.

Belkin’s Conserve Socket is great for those items we leave plugged in that continue to use electricity even when not in use. These might include charging adapters for phones, hand tools or that heated appliance that we leave on occasionally; i.e. irons, hair curlers, etc.
