Advanced Power Strips Why Buy an Advanced Power Strip? Did you know that most electronics continue to draw power even after they are turned off? Advanced power strips help eliminate energy from being wasted by automatically turning power off when your electronics are not being used. With an advanced power strip, you can designate one electronic as your “control,” so that when you turn off your TV, other electronics plugged into the same power strip are automatically turned off. This is an easy, low-cost way to manage your home electronics while saving time, energy, and money.
