1 out of 5 eggsI'm So Sad

Pros: Set up easily and worked great the first evening.

Cons: The next day, I noticed no reading except for the temp which was 130 degrees F. Handheld infrared thermometer showed only the battery case to be this hot; not the surrounding meter cover or the metal housing. Removed the OEM batteries and replaced but still no Kw readings any more. The OEM batteries were very hot when I removed them and might have disabled the sensor due to overheating. Will RMA for exchange this time and get refund if second on fails.

Other Thoughts: I have never felt AA batteries in any device so hot until now. This is disturbing.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very easy to install.

Gives you useful info in easy to read/understand format.

Cons: Outside temperature report is not dependable/accurate. I guess it is because it is reporting the surface heat and not the actual temperature.

Other Thoughts: Fairly simple technology!

If your utility Co offers time of the day rate and and you want to consider if switching to this would save you money or not, you may want to consider using this to get the feel for the rate before actually doing the switch.

Check to see if the meter in use is among the list of meters that would work with this system.

3 out of 5 eggsSame as Black&Decker

Pros: Does help to monitor real-time power use.
Flexible enough for most electricity billing systems in Canada (except for Quebec temperature-sensitive scheme)
Also monitors outdoor temp

Cons: Resolution at low power use is poor with old-style analog meter
Can be tricky to align correctly on analog meter

Other Thoughts: This is the same unit sold at other Canadian stores under the Black&Decker brand name
