[K12OSN] Re: alternate power supplies

I'd say that's a good price for that meter, and it's exactly what the original poster needs.

Just a note about power consumption:  The power company bills you by the kilowatt-hour.  One kilowatt hour is consumed when you a) use 1 kilowatt for 1 hour or b) use 2 kilowatts for 1/2 hour.  I'm mentioning this because the meter at this link looks like it will display either watts or kilowatt-hours.  You should be measuring watts.  If you need to measure kilowatt-hours for some reason, make sure you run each of your tests for the same length of time.

If anybody does a test of power consumption, please post it to the list.  I'm interested in seeing the results.
