Looks like green handsets and sustainability are a bit of a theme this year. We just got wind of an eco-charger which uses 80-90% less power on standby than your average watt-sucking phone charger.
Developed by Kondor and released with Carphone Warehouse, the KIT Power Eco charger saves energy by the unit's ‘intelligent' electronics which shut down most of the circuit board when sensing a drop in power demand from the handset (i.e., as the battery is fully charged or disconnected from the supply).
The product has been in development for two years and would mean not only saving some pounds on your electricity bill, but reduce that elephantine carbon footprint of yours too.
Available from Carphone Warehouse for £22.99 from end March.
