[Discuss] Power consumption

My guess is that the strip really contains a GFI.  They normally consume
1 to 3 watts.

We normally think of GFI outlets keeping us safe outdoors or in possibly
wet areas (kitchen, bathroom, near exterior windows), but the convenience
they provide does come at a continuing cost.
