We present PowerBlade, the smallest, lowest cost, and lowest power AC plug-load meter that measures real, reactive and apparent power, and reports this data, along with cumulative energy consumption, over an industry-standard Bluetooth Low Energy radio. [...] Key Result This new design point enables affordable large-scale studies of plug-load energy usage--an area of growing national importance.Expand
