    kill-a-watt

    Or you could try LocalCooling which is suppose to give you that kind of information via software program.

    Thanks! Just placed an order. Seems simple enough to use, and it's cheap aswell.

    UPS's often gather that kind of information too and can be accessed via plugging the UPS into the computer via USB. A lot more expensive though.

    Question has been answered, and the BS is starting, so I'm just going to close this.

    SaiZo...when you get the kill-o-watt, feel free to start another thread with your findings at that point.
