Abstract

Developing countries like India face severe and acute shortage of electricity due to constant urbanization,growing demand and use of electrical appliances. Many areas face acute shortage which forces the individuals to use alternative power sources that run on fossil fuels or inverters running on batteries which in turn worsen the scarcity of electricity. “Vampire appliances” are those appliances which use electricity even when they are “off” contributing to significant amount of wastage of scarce and valuable power. Hence, we would like to educate the readers about occult power consuming appliances which could be prevalent in dental clinics along with few recommendations to overcome the same.
