Re: Can I keep the 110 v station plugged in?

I borrowed a power check meter from the library. There is good news to report. Even though its indicator lights are glowing green, the charger draws zero watts when plugged into the wall socket (but not into the Volt).

Re: Can I keep the 110 v station plugged in?

I received my Belkin "power conserve switch" and tried it out. It plugs into the wall outlet, and my 120V charger then plugs into it. The idea was to power off my charger without having to unplug it. I used it for a few days and it worked fine. But I became a little nervous because the 3 p...

Re: Can I keep the 110 v station plugged in?

We just took delivery of our new Volt last Saturday and I immediately had the same question about leaving our 120V charger plugged in. I looked for a heavy duty plug-in adapter switch, but did not find anything at our local retail stores (Lowe's, Home Depot). But I did find a "Belkin Conserve P...
