Tame your teenager with an EcoSwitch in 4 easy steps!
Like Homer Simpson’s control room, late at night with all that light emitting from underneath teenagers’ doors, does it seem like there’s a nuclear reactor going on in there? Sure it does. But, as you try to economise them, do you feel like you’re turning into Mr Burns – all tyrannical and miserly?
Well, you CAN tame your teenager’s appetite for electricity easily - here’s how:
- Plug all their electronic energy-hungry stuff into a common ordinary power board that you probably already own, connecting it into a vacant powerpoint but with an EcoSwitch in between
- So that they can recharge their rechargeable stuff (without turning-on and leaving-on their energy-hungry stuff mentioned above), plug all of their recharger thingoes into another power board, then connect it to another powerpoint with a second EcoSwitch in between
- Mount these 2 or more EcoSwitches right at their bed head. When they finally decide to crash, these glowing green lights should be annoying enough to get them to turn all their stuff off as a routine.
- If all else fails – bribe them. And if you find a workable system, please share it with the rest of us!
