    I actually own this charger and I highly recommend it. I use it everywhere I go, as I travel frequently both domestically and internationally. It is one of those things that I legitimately need, as I depend on my gadgets for work, and it doesn’t hurt to know that it’s more eco-friendly than any standard charger out there. So yes, Caeman has a valid point, but since we all NEED to charge our devices,we might as well doing with something that is less damaging to the environment that the thousands of other chargers available in the market.

    For the cost of this item, it would take YEARS to recoup the cost in electric bill savings. In real-world testing, the cost of vampire devices — though measurable — is insignificant on one’s annual phone bill.

    For the manufacturing resources needed to make and distribute this product, a consumer would be far greener to simply learn to unplug devices not in use.

    Cool gadget. I’m guilty of leaving my gadgets plugged in after they’ve completely charged, and I bet this’ll help me save my gadgets’ lives. Cheers!
