New "kill o watt type" Currant-Bluetooth-Outlet-Energy-Monitoring
UPDATE!!  I AM Not recommending Currant, until I work out issue with seller.  Unit is reading approx 80% off.  This was the reason for my low kwhs.  I will update again and delete this once I have resolved with seller.

Hi John,
There is a firmware...

144 kwh per day for a week would be 1008kwh. This week I used little over 500kwh  That is for the house in Houston that has been close to 100 each day, plus 2 coaches with the AC's on in both.  Something is amiss.

I saw that and wondered as well.  Could it have been 144wh?  or 0.144kwh

This type is handy also, use it to get my actual amps produced by the alternator.
You can get cheaper ones on Amazon.

Our Samsung uses about 1.7 kwh each day as measured over about 90 days. Our typical average daily total for all uses is about 3.0 kwh, more if we run AC.  On a better than average day our solar generates more than we use by a long way.

I have an ...

Thanks for starting to monitor your refrigerator's power use. The energy guide sticker for your refrigerator says 617 kwh per year in normal use.  That is 1.69 wkh per day.   Keep on measuring over 60  or 90 days of regular use and let us know. ...

Craneman,
 
Is that purple thing, hanging in front of your microwave, your refrigerator/freezer door lock? I assume you made it; is it constructed from a soft "compressible" material, or more solid (like a cutting board)?
 
Thanks,
 
Trent

How do you know your amp meter is correct?  I have 3 of them all by different manufactures.  They all will read different .  The only one I believe (which might be a mistake) is the Fluke.

I am reading .965 kw. one day and .985 kw the next. If these are too low because of the Currant error I need to figure out how to get an accurate reading.
