Keep track of how much electricity your house uses in style with this funky Wattson electricity meter...

Clip the wireless sensor to the mains (don’t worry its safe), leave the box on the worktop and it’ll tell you exactly how much energy you’re using in either watts or pounds. Turn off the TV or dishwasher – and watch as the counter goes down. It’s a really easy way to keep track of what costs you the most money to run – it glows red if you’re using lots of power and blue when energy use is low.

– £124, Firebox
