The Kill-A-Watt is available in a 220V 50Hz 
version. Might have to cobble a plug/receptacle 
that works depending on your local style.. the 
220V ones I've seen have the round plugs and I 
think you have the slanted blades in Australia.

some googling might find a source.
It's actually the  P4400 from the mfr: P3 
International, but the mfr doesn't sell direct, 
however, an inquiry to them might turn up a domestic retailer.
