A silver bullet (that's also green): the energy-efficient EcoCharge power adapter takes the bite out of 'vampire power drain'.
Whether out of convenience or just habit, if you're like most
people, you probably leave your cell phone charger plugged into an
electrical outlet even when you're not charging your phone. What
you may not realize, though, is that even without an attached mobile
device, chargers continue to draw power--sucking electricity (and
running up your energy bill) through the so-called "vampier power
drain" effect. Luckily, the solution to this problem involves not
garlic but simply a more energy-efficient power adapter: the EcoCharge
by Ventev. When not in charging mode, a plugged-in EcoCharge draws 10
times less electricity than even other EPA Energy Star-certified
chargers. Sized to fit crowded wall outlets and power strips, the
EcoCharge comes in either micro- or mini-USB adapter models, and both
versions also feature a standard-size USB adapter, so you can even
charge two devices at once.
