Interesting. With a cost of electricity at just under $.12 kWHr, it's ~
1$/W or $.40 for that single GFCI. I have 5 of them, so $/yr.
How did you come up with the draw so quick?

No, the KAW doesn't measure the draw of the socket it's plugged into,
GFCI or standard. I plugged a stand-alone, plug-in GFCI into the KAW.
