Vampire Power

Everyone is concerned with reducing unnecessary power loss when boondocking, so has anyone tried the Igo Power Wall surge suppressors??

This is their tag line-Energy saving wall module with integrated iGo Green® Technology automatically reduces wasted standby power by up to 85%. Plug in your computer and other devices to save power without the hassle of unplugging your devices.

Features & Benefits:
2 outlets using iGo Green® Technology - automatically powers down outlets when not in use and powers back up again when devices need power - reducing standby power by up to 85%
2 always-on outlets for devices requiring continuous power
Instant wake-up button for immediate power up of managed outlets
Wall-mounted design ideal for home/office/kitchen use
Learning mode optimizes iGo Green® Technology for your needs

Will this help save my battery power??

We have been using an Iago cell phone charger. All we do is keep changing the modular end plug and it adapts our replacement phones. Still working after some 4 years and 4 different plugs.

Aren't cell phones fun. We are switching my wife to the iPhone so now we will both have the same phones and chargers.

I assume you are referring to using this in outlets powered by your inverter? If so, this seems it will conserve battery reserves. It is 120VAC. Thanks for the information, I plan to buy a few for use in the stix N brix.

The question is: How much does the unit itself draw? Is there an overall net gain or a net loss?

You can just turn off the inverter when not using it to power things. That way you know that no power is being consumed at any outlet.
