Tech Industry: Belkin Conserve Surge Protector

From CES 2008, Tom Merritt takes a look at the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector, a device meant to conserve energy by using a power switch that's wirelessly connected to a surge protector.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi. I'm Tom Merritt, editor from CNET.com here at CES 2008. We're taking a look at the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector. This is a solution for problem that annoys me. See this bricks here, like for your laptop or to recharge something. They will use power whether you have your device plugged into them or not. But of course it's a pain to go down and reach and unplug them every time. So, Belkin's suggestion for solving this is this device that has a power switch wirelessly connected to the surge protector. Six of these outlets are connected to this, two of them are always On. As you can see we've got one device here that's glowing blue and the rest are dark. That way, these are not drying power, when I'm away. When I come back home, I take, go to the wall, turn it On and the lights go blue, the LED light goes back On. Everything is working again. This will be available in late second quarters, so, Springish sometime and they say it will retail for about $49. Once again, it's the Belkin Conserve Surge Protector. At CES 2008, I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ]
