Reduce Electrical Vampirism, Save Electricity and Money
Phantom electrical usage, electrical vampirism, stand-by power: waste by any other name is just as ugly.
AT&T now sells what it calls a Zero Charger that shuts itself off after it has fully charged your mobile electrical devices, unlike most other chargers that continuously charge up your small electronics until you unplug them.
Why does this matter? Apart from reducing waste, a charger that shuts off after having juiced up your electronic device actually protects the batteries in your electrical devices, extending the life of the battery and the mobile device.
Knowing when to switch itself off without consumers needing to unplug the numerous electrical devices that this charger can be used for makes it convenient and easy to use in addition to being energy-smart and eco-friendly.
The charger is universally compatible with cell phones, iPods, Bluetooth headsets, and many other small electronic devices.
