CurrentCost CC128 – Battery Pack
Posted April 10, 2009on:
Having got a CC128 currentcost energy monitoring device recently and have been playing with it writing some nice new software but the main aim was to cut down on the power usage which comes from leaving devices plugged in and not used around the house.
The currentcost device needs to be plugged into power which limits where you can go with it and its makes it a bit unfriendly to go around the house finding devices which are using power.While doing some research for writing my application I noticed this picture with a battery pack powering the currentcost unit.
For any one who wants one this is all you need.
Very simple to put together and you will end up with something which looks like this and can be used to power your currentcost while you move around the house finding devices which are using power.
