Mobile owners switch to a four or five star mobile charger and save energy

Do you know that chargers consume electricity when disconnected from the phone but left plugged into the wall socket? Around two thirds of the energy used by mobile devices is wasted in this way. Manufacturers are addressing this by continually improving the efficiency of their chargers and in making it easier for consumers to pick the ones using the least energy. To help you save energy, a group of mobile manufacturers has launched a common energy rating system for chargers, making it easier for consumers to compare and choose the one that saves the most energy. The new rating system indicates how much energy each charger uses when left plugged into the wall socket after charging is completed. The ratings cover all chargers currently sold by LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson and range from five stars for the most efficient chargers down to zero stars for the ones consuming the most energy.

If the more than three billion people owning mobile devices today switched to a four or five star charger, this could save the same amount of energy each year as produced by two medium sized power plants. To save energy ask for a four or five star charger for your mobile. From today make it a point to buy the most efficient charger.
