tyler.close, you are correct.
Thanks for setting me straight.
I have the the Efergy Classic.
I powered up one of my smoke detectors through a Kill-A-Watt.
It has a 0.08 power factor, I assumed nothing in my home would have a PF that low, and therefor assumed the W would always be somewhat close to the VA.
Obviously that was a bad assumption.
The smoke detector measured 8.3 VA and 0.6 W throught the Kill-A-Watt, pretty close to your measurements.
So what I thought was costing me about $4/month is actually only about $0.30/month.
Now I wish I would have bought the Efergy True.
