**A SIMPLE EXPLANATION OF ELECTRICITY CHARGES**

Electricity makes all of our lives easier every day. Satic has a way for you make the world a better place by conserving energy while keeping more money in your wallet. The Pure Power Plug-In is a line conditioning, amperage reducing, power factor increasing plug-in device that will reduce the amps needed to run the electrical appliances in your home. How electricity is measured is somewhat complicated because of the numerous variables involved and the fact that each power company has it’s own policies and rates. Our goal is to give you a basic understanding of how electricity works and is measured. Most importantly, how the Pure Power Plug-In allows you to use less energy and save money?

We have all heard of a 60-watt light bulb, a tool that requires 120 volts or an appliance that uses 5 amps but most of us don’t really understand what that means. Let’s try to define a few terms:

**VOLTAGE**: Definition -The pressure that pushes electrons in a circuit.

What that really means is how much pressure it takes to run an item needing electricity. For example, a small flashlight only needs a 1.5 volt battery to make it work. A car uses a 12 volt battery to power it’s systems. Most items in your home require 120 volts to run. Some items, like an electric clothes dryer may require 240 volts to operate.

**AMPERAGE (Amps)**: Definition – The measure of electrical current traveling between two points.

What that really means is that amps are required to run electronics and appliances and the number of amps you use has a direct effect on how much electricity you purchase from the electric company.

**ELECTRICAL POWER (Watts)**: Definition – The amount of electric current flowing due to an applied voltage.

What that really means is that watts are the amount of electricity required to start or operate a device for 1 second. Electrical power is measured in watts. And you are charged in watts. In order to measure and save you need to know the formula for calculating watts, which is:

**VOLTS X AMPS = WATTS**.

So if we know an electrical device has 4.6 Amps and is using the 120 Volt service in your home, then the math tells us it uses 552 watts of energy.

**ELECTRICAL ENERGY**: Definition – Electrical energy introduces the measurement of time to electrical power.

What that really means is that in order to determine how much electrical power a device consumes you must calculate how long it consumes that power and at what rate (watts). Electrical Energy is measured in watt-hours using the following formula:

**WATTS X HOURS = WH (WATT HOURS)**

For example, if you read a book for 5 hours using a 100-watt light bulb you would have consumed 500 watts of electrical energy. Watts are a very small unit of measurement. Your electric company uses Kilowatt (1,000 watts) hours to measure how much electricity to bill you for. The formula to find kilowatt-hours is:

**WATTS PER HOUR/1,000 = KWH (KILOWATT HOURS)**

So, if you used 500 watts to read your book, you have used .5kWh (500/1,000). The average cost of electricity is $0.09/kWh, so you would be billed:

**5KWH X $0.09/KWH = $0.045**

Now that you have a better understanding of how you pay your electric company, we can explain how the Pure Power Plug-In reduces energy consumption and saves you money.

The Pure Power Plug-In is a device that is so easy to use, it just plugs into any outlet in your home and will reduce the Amps needed to run your electrical appliances/devices by as much as 10-40% depending on the device, saving you money.

The Pure Power Plug-In offers two additional benefits as well that increase the life of your appliances/devices. The Pure Power Plug-In will increase your Power Factor and reduces the Harmonics affecting your appliances/device.

**ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS:**

An electromagnetic field (EMF) is a physical field produced by moving electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. The electromagnetic field extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the electromagnetic interaction. It is one of the four fundamental forces of nature (the others are gravitation, the weak interaction, and the strong interaction).

The field can be viewed as the combination of an electric field and a magnetic field. The electric field is produced by stationary charges and are created by differences in voltage: the higher the voltage, the stronger will be the resultant field and the magnetic field produced by moving charges (currents) and created when electric current flows: the greater the current, the stronger the magnetic field; these two are often described as the sources of the field.

Much has been written on the ill effects of prolonged exposure to EMF’s. We are not health professionals and cannot comment on these effects and will refer you to the World Health Organization or other experts in the field of human health, we will only comment that the Satic units are designed to reduce EMF’s and are proven to be very effective.

**HARMONICS:**

Harmonics are harmful to your electrical appliances/devices, especially anything with a computer chip in it. The reason is that harmonics create heat and heat damages electric motors and computer chips, thus shortening their life expectancy. The Pure Power Plug-In reduces harmonics on any electrical circuit it is plugged into. As a result, the heat generated by these harmonics is also reduced and your electrical devices will last longer.

**POWER FACTOR:**

Power factor is the measure of efficiency for the electrical energy flowing through your house. Most homes have a power factor between 75-85%. The Pure Power Plug-In will typically raise power factor to above 95%.

The higher the power factor, the more efficiently you are using the electricity being sent to you by the electric company. The more efficiently you use this electricity, the less of it you need! The less energy you use, the lower your power bill!
