Turning off electronics on standby power is easy as turning off lights.
Going Green is Good for Your Wallet and the Environment
Standby power--also known as "phantom power"--is the energy that devices consume while they are still plugged into a power outlet, even while the device is turned off. This wasteful "phantom power" is generated by TVs, computers, computer accessories, battery chargers, and many other electronic devices.

Although the devices are not actually doing anything, they are still sipping energy. And not just minuscule amounts--the California Energy Commission estimates that as much as 15% of household electricity use can be attributed to standby power loss!

With the costs of energy high, both in dollars and environmental impact, it's in our best interests to conserve whenever possible. And with the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector, being green has never been easier, so now you have no excuse for wasting energy.

The Conserve Surge Protector features a remote control with a range of up to 60 feet and a convenient wall mount. By mounting the remote near your light switch, powering down the devices connected to your surge protector is as simple as turning off the lights as you leave the room. You can also detach the remote and keep it anywhere that's convenient, such as on a desktop or coffee table.

The remote also features adjustable channels, which means that you can control multiple Conserves in different rooms without interference. It also means you can control up to several surge protectors with a single remote to really maximize your energy savings. You'll be rewarded with both a lower utility bill and a smaller carbon footprint.

Eight Versatile Surge-Protected Outlets
The Conserve offers a total of eight surge-protected outlets, six of which are "switchable" and two that are "always-on." This means that you can connect up to six devices that can be controlled by the remote, and two devices that will always stay on. The "always-on" outlets are useful for devices that require a constant flow of energy, such as routers, alarm clocks, cable modems, or DVRs.

Smart Space-Saving Design
The Conserve Surge Protector features a slim design that saves space. The six switchable outlets are clearly separated from the two always-on outlets to prevent any mix up. A sliding safety cover on every outlet provides an additional measure of protection, and a cable management system keeps cords neat and organized. LED lights let you know when the surge protection is active and if there's a faulty ground.

Each of the outlets is surge protected to a maximum spike current of 72,000A. The Belkin Conserve Surge Protector is backed by a lifetime product warranty and a $100,000 connected equipment warranty.

Excellent product, push the remote transmitter button and the surge protector switches off. Push it again and the surge protecter turns on. Will definitely save electricity by cutting power to devices that are always on standby.

Only problem with the unit I received was that initially the remote switch would not turn the surge protector on. I thought that I might have to return it, until I checked the frequency settings for the remote switch and the surge protector. Switched them to match and the unit worked like a charm. It seems that the factory set settings did not match.

This highlighted a key feature of this unit. You can use one remote switch to control your entertainment system's surge protector, and a seperate remote switch to control your PC system's surge protector, OR you can use one remote to control two surge protectors.

Studies suggest that 5% of America's power usage is consumed up by "phantom load", when devices that you turned off continue to consume at least some electricity. Turning power strips off cuts off "vampire" devices and prevents them from using electricity, but I tend to leave my power strips on because they're hidden under a desk or behind furniture or sometimes even in a different room.

That's where the Belkin Conserve power strip comes in, offering a convenient way to turn your power strips off with a remote switch that you can mount on top of your desk, near your TV couch, or by a light switch. You can even configure a single switch to power off multiple power strips, or just have each strip operate on its own frequency with its own switch.

I've been using my Conserve for about two months, and it's worked flawlessly the entire time. I even tested how well it shut the power to my devices off and, sure enough, my Kill A Watt instrument showed that power usage dropped to near 0 watts. What impressed me most about that number is how little power the Conserve apparently uses waiting for a signal from the switch.

In my case, I ran the numbers, and using my Belkin Conserve will more than pay for itself within the first year of use, and save me hundreds of dollars over my equipment's lifetime.

If you have a situation where you need a power strip in an out of the way place, then buy this product! It's only marginally more expensive than other power strips, and chances are that you'll make up the price difference within only a few months of use.

The Belkin Conserve is one of my biggest recommendations on Amazon.

Follow Up: FYI to those concerned about the remote battery, I've been using for about six months and the battery original battery still works! Also, as others noted, the battery is easy to find in stores and is as easily replaced as TV remote batteries are.

So I got one of these and within the first month I saw a $50 reduction in my power bill. Seriously!

It all started after I got a power meter and started going crazy to find what was sucking power around my house. My power bills where at 100+ and it wasn't making any since. So I started measuring and found out that my entertainment center was eating 80 - 85 Watts of power when it was OFF! Now everything I have didn't exactly cut off and turns out my Sharp Aquos was eating the most power off.

Devices OFF/suspend Watts (estimating from memory)
---------- ------------------------------
Sharp Aquos 40
Wii 5
Apple TV 12
Popcorn Hour 15
Wireless Bridge 10
Oppo DVD player 1
Reciever 5

Now the Apple TV & Popcorn Hour actually never really turn off. Also no way to really power off the wireless bridge. I started pulling the power for the surge protector, but this was a pain to unplug and replug in every time. Most of the time I just left it plugged in.

Then I saw this! I got and it's so worth the money. Makes it as easy as flipping a switch.

One thing you have to get used to with the remote switch is you can't just flip it like a light switch, you have to press down to assert you are turning it on or off. I think this could be a safety feature to ensure that if someone leans against it it will not power everything on or off. Would be bad if your in the middle of a big game and someone leans against it and turns everything off.

It does though have 2 "always" on ports that do not get cut off. For devices like DVRs or routers.

Yes highly recommend. The wireless remote makes it simple and easy to completely shutdown what you want and not have anymore devices eating electricity when your not using them. Paid for itself in the first month.

The remote is a great idea. I have tons of music equipment that does not have an 'off' state and can easily be turned off w/the remote now!

Re: the "non standard battery" from some reviewers; the battery is a STANDARD and NON-PROPRIETARY 12 volt A23. They are SUPER cheap and can be picked up at your local hardware store, some larger grocery stores, and even a few local convenience stores for less than 2 bucks-- they will last a long time (longer than the one it came with for sure).

Kudos to Belkin for this product!

I bought the Belkin Surge Protector for two reasons: One was to protect all my TV equipment from electrical surges (like lightning): and, second, to enable me to shut my whole system down, and quit using "ghost power" for 18 or so hours a day.

The Belkin has 4 plug-ins for elements you want to shut down completely with it's remote, and 2 plug-ins for elements like my HD box, which I prefer to always have on, which saves rebooting every day.

The Belkin works as advertised, and is saving, on two TV sets, a combined 36 hours a day of "ghost power". The remote is effective at 15 feet, and just takes a push on one of it's two buttons to activate of deactivate the whole system. I don't know how much electricity I'm saving, but I know two TV systems are protected from power surges, and I'm no longer using power to have both sets on "standby" all day and night. A good buy.
