Leaving the charger plugged in uses almost as much electricity as if we were charging our cellphone

Leaving the charger hanging from the wall socket 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, hardly uses any power.

If you’re one of those people who go around the house unplugging every charger you come across, you should know that you’re bending down for no reason at all. Well, to tell the whole truth, you’resaving about 35 cents a year. It’s a phantom energy use. For the electricity meter to detect it, you’d have to plug in all the entire family’s chargers – and a few more besides – all at the same time. The power consumption of this appliance is 0.2W. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory undertook to translate these data into money, and you’ll be surprised by the result. Charging your phone costs 50 cents a year. Leaving the charger plugged in costs less than 15 cents a year.
