This has been coming for a while now, but: the disposable battery is on its death bed thanks to the heavy use of non-user-serviceable, cheap, rechargeable, and durable batteries in modern devices. But is this necessarily a good thing? Let’s analyze this.
Due to a change in the type of power plug that ships with smaller devices (i.e. the “magic little boxes” that us integrators install for clients) in the past several years, said devices and power supplies are more apt to be wiped out by lightning and power spikes than older supplies in exchange for a lower manufacturing cost. However, with a simple change in how you merely plug it in, you can alleviate this key disadvantage AND lower your electricity bill in one fell swoop.
Appalled by your electricity bill or just want to cut costs where you can in this horrendous economy? Well here are some energy management tips you can employ that cost little to nothing to implement, but save you loads on your electricity usage (which you can verify using our TED Energy Management products).
Most of these rules I myself use, and my power bill is $50.
