    Perhaps you have heard of ghost products or maybe you are going what is a ghost product? Either way, I'm going to tell you a little bit about them and that they are real and do exist. Those products are products designed to consume electricity for no apparent reason at all. Many of these ghost products are simply LED indicator lights that let you know there is power on and ready to go for whatever device it is. More than just power going into power this LED light a certain small amount of energy is consumed in the device itself. This energy is only in small amounts but adds up over periods of time or when to put together with everybody else's consumption. For example, if you have a blender with LED indicator lights on it, and you leave it plugged in most likely one of the lights will stay lit letting you know it has a power source connected. This light is frivolously wasting power.

    When you're ready to use your blender just, plug it in yourself when you're done using it unplug it. It’s pretty simple it has to be done in the cleaning process anyway, and this is just one way that Ghost products can suck your energy costs and deplete our natural resources. It would seem today if you turn off the lights in your house you'll see a runway of digital lights from video game systems, radios, cable boxes, computers all the way to stoves, microwaves, and other appliances LED lights to seem to be everywhere. Purchasing products that do not have LED light indicators is also a way to help save on that power for the future. Ghost products are real, and they are out there sucking up your power when you can't see it. Eliminate as many ghost products in your house as possible to do your part to protect the environment for future generations to come. There are devices that you can buy at your local electronic stores that will measure the amount of output whether it is in Watts, Kilowatts or other forms of measurement for electricity such as amps or volts.
