Should get this for my mother. She’s always worried about power consumption. Does it really add up? I wouldn’t think that phantom power accounts for much in the grand scheme of things.

I was thinking the same and I was surprised what Google says:
"If, for example, you have a relatively simple home with few electronics (perhaps only a cable modem, a laptop, and a small television), your total phantom electricity draw might not exceed 80 to 90 watts. In total, that might cost you around $7 to $7.50 per month in "extra" electricity."
...On the other hand, you might love owning the latest appliances and have a wide range of electronic equipment, with a large television in most rooms, full DVR and cable boxes, a wireless laser printer and a home theater system. In that case, your total phantom electricity draw might be in the range of 200 to 300 watts (or even more), which could cost you upwards of $25 to $30 per month

How is cable modem, a laptop, and a small television phantom power use 90 watts of power.
A 50" LED TV use 50 watts when they are on.

Exactly, those numbers don't make any sense.... phantom power draw is usually under 5 watts, closer to 1-2 watts for most electronics.

Because I read it on the internet, it has to be true!

Rexdale just (Kipling & rexdale) decreased their price. It stills scans at $25, so you have to mention it to the cashier if he/she doesn’t know. They have over 150 in stock according to the stock site. It’s in front of the hockey section, not at aisle 13 like their website says.

Thanks OP needed to replace some old crappy power bars. This was perfect. Picked up 4. The layout works well for larger adapters as you effectively have 4 “ends /corners” that can we used for larger adapters. I am running two in sequence for my gear.

There seems to be at least 20 or
More visible on the shelf at lakeshore and Leslie. Isle 31 end cap.

Thanks again.

If the scanned price is different from the price on the shelf, then you would be eligible for a $10 discount due to the Scanning Code of Practice. That makes it only $4.93!

I price matched at the Agincourt location tonight, which is currently selling it for $29.xx. I showed the cashier the product page on the website, with the leslie and lakeshore store selected (or anything location showing $14.93). She then got manager's approval and I got it at $14.93 + tax.

Thanks, OP!

Keep watching this item as I don't want to buy it at 24.91...it's been stuck at that price for over a week. No one is buying!! Hoping it goes down to $14 like the other stores, and I'll be all over it!!! :)
