Asked by Jabbster April 9, 2020

Answer

It has no memory. It will lose all readings if the power goes out. You'll need to keep a log if power is unreliable. Another alternative would be to modify it with a "tweet-a-watt" kit from Adafruit, then you can set it up to send you a tweet, or just a text message of your energy use periodically. Fun to do, but requires you to have some programming knowledge and some soldering skills.

can it be used on an outdoor plug. where it could get wet. or does it have to be kept completely dry.

Answer

This is a long answer, but the bottom line is that I don't think you will have a problem. Your question made me curious and so I went out to the shop and tried to fry one. I put one of my Kill-a-Watt meters between my cyclone and it's 20 amp dedicated outlet. The cyclone will blow a 15 amp breaker on start up. It pulls about 1200 watts under load and it has a 1.5 hp motor, so if surge current is 3 times running current (typical conservative estimate) I'd guess the cyclone pulls 3600 watts on startup (probably not, I think these estimates are way high). I set the Kill-a-Watt to watt mode and it read 10 watts. That's the power draw of my central dust collector's switching system. I fired up the cyclone. The meter remained at 10 watts for a couple of seconds as the cyclone spun up. Then it steadily rose until it settled in at around 1180 watts. Pretty sure the Kill-a-watt has some protection built in. From what I can see, it doesn't read anything until current and voltage stabilize. If your pump is on a normal circuit breaker, and it doesn't blow the breaker on start up, then start up surge is not going to hurt the Kill-a-Watt meter either. I'm also thinking that your pump manufacturer has overstated the power requirements of the pump...they don't want people running them on undersized circuits. A 1/2 horse pump should draw less than 400 watts (1hp = 745.69 Watts). I don't think you will have a problem.

Asked by drewraybo February 13, 2018

Answer

The time is total time connected; as such, the total electrical usage is the time-weighted average between stand-by and running. While there is no direct way to determine how long the compressor is running, it can be done, but requires a bit of effort and mathematics on your part ... check the instantaneous usage during both stand-by and run states, check the total usage over a specific time period (say 24 hours), subtract the stand-by usage (instantaneous X time), then divide the result by instantaneous run usage - this gives you a good estimate of compressor run time.

this is work with 220v or just 110v or both ? thx

Poorly LIT Kilowatt LED Indicator

Directions for use very vague and difficult to understand how to use product. LED indicator very dim and difficult to read. Because most wall outlets are 14" from the floor, one has to get on hands and knees to read the LED, coupled with it being very dim makes it very difficult to read.

This item does not require any tools or batteries. Just plug it in then plug and electric item into it. It will keep track of how long it has been plugged in and also record the electricity used. To reset it simply unplug it and plug it back in. We have used it on two refrigerators, a heated waterbed and all the other electronic devices in our home. Based on the changes we have made this item will pay for itself in about five weeks. This item also alerted us to a malfunction in an item that could potentially have caused a fire.

Ive had this for at least 10 years and use it as many have in other reviews.
It's inexpensive and works as it was designed to do. Today it quit while I was testing my camper,,,duhh. 100% my fault. The tool clearly states it is for use on 15a circuits to which I was using it on a 20a powering a camper designed for 30a. After about 24 hours the tool quit. I dissected it, as I always do with anything I have and found the the internal fuse "worked" as designed. An no the average person is not going to have the fuse, but if your savy and educated it's a simple fix. For the price it's cheaper to replace unit rather than to bother taking the back off, but if your like me, fix it and go on with life appreciating that someone took the time to design and make it affordable in the first place. The tool is extremely simple to use if you know what it is supposed to do and needs no learning curve or instructions. If you don't know simple electronics show some appreciation to someone who studied basic electricity 101 and have them come over your place and play with it together.

I used a Kill-A-Watt and carefully measured the watts used by my entertainment system, fridge, medical device, microwave, pedestal fan and computer. Everything came to less than 400W per hour so I have way more capacity using a PowerBrite inverter than I need. I figure if I need to run out and purchase a small air conditioner during a Summer blackout, the inverter and my car will be able to handle it. I also looked at my utility bill and saw the average KW per day for heavy and low use months and this inverter will handle them all. Check your own electric bill and make some calculations. I purchased a PowerBrite 2300W inverter to hook to my car battery and run my fridge and entertainment center and fans and lights in a power outage. I used the Kill-A-Watt to determine how much wattage I use for each appliance and types of power cords I need. When you get the Kill-A-Watt you can test all your appliances and see how much wattage they use over days and it's a lot of fun to do. You can find out if your electric toaster really is drawing power while it is off. It doesn't. You can see how much your fridge uses over a day and you can see how much it surges when the compressor goes on. Knowing your cost per KWH (as found on your electric bill) you can determine exactly how much it costs to run an appliance and whether you should replace it. And then the Kill-A-Watt will sit in your toolbox never to be used again because you'll have written down all these electric usage stats. Only fond memories will you have of your Kill-A-Watt. Or you could be like me and be trying to force everyone you know to borrow your Kill-A-Watt and report their electric usage figures back to you. Once you have the device you will want to know. Purchase a PowerBrite inverter and Kill-A-Watt online from Home Despot and they will be delivered free to your door. You can always take them back for full refund if you overbought your inverter size.

I thought the Kill A Watt product was pretty good. I did have a little confusion on how to set it up for a timed measurement of watt usage. The screen was a little hard to see in places were lighting was low. Other than that it was nice to measure the watt usage of appliances.
