    Default Cable Boxes

    Would be interesting to see how much power the Delancer cable boxes use as they are generally on 24/7.
    Anybody any ideas?

    Never thought of it..... and I am solar.

    Sometimes its the little things that get you !!

    On a similar note...

    Phone chargers, etc....they draw power when they are plugged in...
    EVEN IF.. the device is not hooked up to the charger

    So we unhook the whole thing when finished charging..

    Whodathunkit ??
