>> Green Tech gifts are hot this year and we have got some great ideas. In fact, this one here can make you more green and save you money. I love this Kill-A-Watt EZ. It's just a little power monitor that you plug-in to your electronics, then you can see which ones used the most juice and how much they're costing you down to the minute. And it only cost $35. I have it plugged in to this Phillips Eco TV to prove that this is the most energy-efficient 42-inch LCD TV we've ever tested. It costs about $1200. Now these are a couple of universal chargers that keep you going when you're off the grid. This is a sun-powered charger called Solio that costs about a hundred dollars and then this little Medis Power Pack is a fuel cell charger. You just shake it up, use it a couple of times and mail it back for recycling when it's used up. And now here's a gift you might not even realize as green, the Amazon Kindle. You get all your books and even your newspapers electronically. It saves a ton of paper, not to mention space. It does cost $359, but most books are only $10 to download.
