Default Kill A Watt meter at 220vac

Hello,
Does anyone know about a current monitoring device as the Kill A Watt, but compatible with European 220vac line voltage?

All I can find is supplied for 110vac


Best regards!

I see those quite often at Aldi, Lidl etc AND of course in stores that sell electronic stuff.
Are those meters not availlable in Spain?

Hi regiregi22,

I have buy this one on Ebay, for less than 15 including shipping.
It can measure :
-Line voltage (V)
-Line current (A)
-Real power (W)
-Power factor
-Energy (Wh)
-Cost ().

Very easy to use with a large LCD display. I have compare measurements results with
a very high precision power-meter (Zimmer LMG95), and all measurements are better than 1% !
I have not expected that for this price.
The only issue is that the plug and socket are for German type, the earth connexion is not the the same in France.
Regards.

Frex

Didn't even went out to look on the shops

I was able to find that nice set of solutions:
efergy Europe - Energy monitors: Efergy e2, Efergy Elite Energy Monitor, Electricity Monitors, Electricity Saver Product ? efergy Europe

So i went with the Energy monitor socket 2.0. It costed just 25 shipping included

BTW Frex, what is the product you were pointing me out?

Best regards
