    cute Why is a 10-watt Bulb known as a Zero watt bulb

    Technically it is not pobssible to light an
    electric bulb with drawing input greater
    than zero watts. Zero watts is actually
    no zero,but refers to minimum wattage.
    The inaccurate meters of the early days
    could not measure such a negligible amount of
    electric consumption as during those days
    a watt hour meter had a rotating disc
    and when all the lights were switched
    off the disc would have only minimum rotation,
    which would not record even 10watt
    consumption. This led to origination of
    'zero watt' though it is incorrect.
    Nowadays
    electric meter can record even electricity used
    as indicators in switches.
