Available for various Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson phones, the Eco Charger costs £22.99 ($33) and it “shuts down” immediately after your handset is charged.
Apparently, if all mobile users in the UK would use it, the new charger could save up to 300,000,000 kWh of electricity yearly – the equivalent of £85 million.
Carphone Warehouse stores should have the Eco Charger on sale starting March 3, but it looks like you can already buy one via the retailer’s website.
Now, until that universal charger proposed by the GSM Association gets launched, this new Eco Charger can definitely be a good alternative to your regular charging methods.
