One of the keys to driving with an eye towards being green and improving economy is to watch how you accelerate and keep an eye on mileage figures. Some cars have onboard computers for this, but others lack such systems.

PLX Kiwi has unveiled several cool products that plug into the OBDII port on modern cars, can monitor all sorts of things on the vehicle. The Kiwi Drive Green Save Gas module monitors green savings, and offers 20 green driving lessons.

APC Back-UPS ES 750How would you like to own an uninterruptible power supply which is geared towards helping you save electricity? It’s an interesting concept APC is exploring as it unveils its Back-UPS ES 750 for around $100.

The APC Back-UPS ES 750 lets you plug up to 10 devices into its outlets. Five of these plugs offer battery backup up to 70 minutes in case power fails and all 10 offer surge protection as well. As an eco-friendly device the ES 750 has master/controlled outlets in which the master, sensing a computer has gone into sleep mode or powered off, automatically shuts down the controlled outlets. This in turn powers connected devices, saving money and cutting down on power usage.
