Default Smart Plug Standby Power Use

I've tried searching the webs as well as here specifically and can't find anything.

Does anyone know how much power a smart plug like this
Wemo Mini Smart Plug
uses? I'm thinking about picking up a few so I can put my dehumidifier on a schedule, but if it's going to sit there and use 20W all day long I might look for another option. Has anyone tried plugging one into a kill-a-watt?

I did. But darned if I can remember if it was the wifi wemo I tested or the zigbee peanut. Anyway, maybe both. But the result was no noticeable draw. So it must be milli amps.

Wemo community says 1.5w.

Hmmm. Maybe it was the zigbee plug I tested.

I checked a Bluetooth timer plug on the kill-a-watt meter its draw was 0.6w on idle and between 0.8 / 0.9 watt in seek mode.
