Thanks for your responses. The digital meter is not 'Kill a Watt' brand but
probably very similar. I can use it on everyday appliances without a
problem. Interestingly I have discovered that my computer uses 7 watts when
switched off . Computer screen switched off (not just standby) also uses 7
watts. Etc. Hmm. It all adds up.
I will install a PFC cap eventually, and keep my eyes out for analogue
(power/volt/amp) meters over here.
