APC power surge promo benefits Earth Day

One week to go until Earth Day on April 22, and I am growing a bit weary of many of the eco-timed pitches. One that leapt out of my crowded in-box: a promo associated with surge protector/uninterruptible power supply (UPS) company APC by Schneider Electric.

One week to go until Earth Day on April 22, and I am growing a bit weary of many of the eco-timed pitches. One that leapt out of my crowded in-box: a promo associated with surge protector/uninterruptible power supply (UPS) company APC by Schneider Electric.

It's pretty simple: If you buy anything from the APC Power-Savings Surge Protectors with LCD Timer line, the company will slip $5 per product to the Earth Day Network. This particular series of power devices (which retail for less than $25) comes with away of setting up timer profiles: you can program it, for example, to come on during the night to charge your mobile phone and then shut off again in the morning when you leave.

The purchase must be made between April 18, 2010 and April 24, 2010, to qualify.
