Green Wall USB Charger uses timer to curb energy waste

When you plug your phone or other device into the wall to charge, it will continue to draw power until you unplug it, regardless of whether or not it has a full battery. While it isn’t using a large amount of energy, it’s still money that you are wasting, and it’s not exactly helping the environment or anything. Well this Green Wall USB Charger can help put a stop to all of that.

This wall charger can power up to four gadgets at once, and has a very special feature. You can select how long you want the device(s) to charge. You can choose two-hour intervals from 2 to 8 hours. After that time has passed, the charger will stop, and will no longer draw any energy. We’re not sure of a price or release date, but VogDUO should be announcing this at next month’s CES in Las Vegas.

  • A nice intermediate step, but ultimately not that useful: Do you set it for too short a time and undercharge, or too long a time and still waste electricity?

    A better solution is a current draw limiter such that once the batteries are full charged and stop drawing current, the unit shuts down – only cycling up periodically to ensure the attached units stay topped up.
