Default EKM 120/240V kWh meters

I was reading on an i-miev (Mitsubishi electric car) forum about these devices. While not cheap compared to the kill a watt, they at least are an option.

EKM - Electric Meters (KWh Meters)

I just picked up the Efergy Elite kw meter for a song. It uses clamps over your service wires inside your breaker panel. It gives a nice real time reading. It immediately drove me nuts to see the power im consuming at idle! And od course even worse when the appliances are running.

They're out there on Amazon $113 and ebay for less. Mine was an open box special for $35. They come standard with only one sensor, which works for folks with balanced 220v. The sensor for my other leg was $20 more. The same unit has inputs for up to 3 sensors and 3 phase power.
