I'm not sure what it will draw charging, but nice time I discharge it (in the airport perhaps) I will let you know when it recharges...but then I wonder if the kill-a-watt will work in nihon. I assume so!

Home efficiency improvements are the best.

I have a energy monitor for the house. It amazing how much energy you can save when you have instantaneous feed back. SG for the home. Gotta love it. Have fun with it.

Much much more. Does she have a programable theromstat for the AC? Or even a hot water heater blanket.

Yes programmable, and she uses it.

No blanket. How much do they run/how good are they?

I used my Kill-a-watt to confirm that my TV, Dish Receiver, and Stereo were consuming 40W combined in the off state. We've started switching the outlet off at night to save over 14kWh per month. Ok, that's not much by itself, but coupled with other energy sappers that now stay unplugged or switched totally off until needed, we are probably saving closer to 100 kWh per month.

And I have all but completely stopped using the mid-tower PC of ours. That thing sucks down over 120W just doing nothing - even after I have underclocked it to 30% of rated speed. It's now switched off at the power strip as well to save another 27W vs. the parasitic draw of everything being only powered down. The laptop peaks out around 20W.

It's fun to do a little "cap and trade" system in your own house. I tried to list the things that take power, usually by a certain length. For example, a movie uses 0.17kW. Find the price of things and ask is it worth it? A few cents for a movie, sure. Leaving the strips plugged in at night to lose a quarter, nope. It's fun to find out how much can really be saved. I think I got my KillAWatt for $35 online.
