Is anyone familiar with the Kill-A-Watt power meter? It's made in China and
sells for about $ 40.
I would like to know if it just measures AC amps or if it actually measurers
power consumption over time, like a month.
Would anyone know what the sensitivity is? Does is measure the power used by
refrigerators as well as radios and clocks?

Yep. Great little toy. Basically, it's a fancy watt/volt/amp meter.
Gives you KWh consumption, voltage, amperage draw, wattage draw,
anything you can get out of a good "volt meter" without having to do
any math ;-).
Any 110v AC device.

I believe mine also measures line frequency, as well......A few months ago,
Shack had the Kill-A-Watt meter on sale for $9 each. We bought two... I
also have the much more expensive Brand Watt Meter....
