Cell phone charger that doesn’t waste electricity

Pocket Picks reports that Nokia has come up with a cell phone charger that switches itself off when your phone is charged. We’ve all been told to unplug our appliances at the wall because they still use electricity in standby mode. Well, the Zero Waste charger has a big green button on the back that you press to start charging and that automatically pops up when the battery’s charged. This cuts down on the amount of electricity wasted. It’s apparently still a prototype but Noknok.tv got hold of one and posted a video on You Tube about it.

    Awesome to see realistic technology like this being trialled. If we can have all cellphone chargers, monitor psu’s, laptop psu’s and the like to switch off when not in use or when just left permanently plugged in…..the 10% saving which is being touted as a pre-requisite to alleviate load on the electrickery grid should be easily attainable.

    We’ve had enough of electricity problems. All innovative technology to minimise needless waste must be actively researched and implemented.
