Conserve Socket Power Timer. Many of the electronics and appliances around your home use electricity even when they're not in use, wasting energy and driving up your electric bill. The Conserve Socket Power Timer automatically shuts off power (including standby power) to your electronics and appliances after a time interval you select, to help you save energy. Choose between three settings: 30 minutes, 3 hours and 6 hours - with the touch of a switch. When the selected time interval runs out, the power shuts off automatically. The Conserve Socket itself uses no power when not in operation, so standby power is eliminated.
