I think what the author was saying is many consumer electronics are available in dual voltage formats (Jensen) for one, I had Sharp color set with VCR and separate DVD player in 12VDC also. The point is if you really want to save amp hours this is a real savings to prevent power conversions DC to AC and back for final use.
