µWatt Power Strip

What is µWatt?

Phantom load is defined as the power consumed by a device when it is not in active use but still plugged into the mains. Hundreds of pounds can be saved each year if the owner of the devices does one thing: turn the power off.

Microwatt aims to integrate all the advantages of the current solutions while maintaining a cost-effective edge. The potential for Microwatt is immense, from the cost savings to the reduction in carbon emissions, and can extend beyond the household to offices and industries.

This website aims to present the research that the team has procured on the feasibility of addressing phantom load. It also details the proposed device and the considerations taken in the design phase. Finally, it gives a preview of the end device the consumer will use upon fabrication.
