Reducing energy cost when charging devices.

Leaving your phone plugged into the charger is using excess energy and, in many cases, reducing the battery’s overall lifespan. With multiple people in a household relying on a mobile phone, the excess energy use can start to add up. Instead, unplug your phone and charger when fully charged to only use the energy you need.

You can also take it to the next level by investing around $30 in a solar power bank. By using it to charge your mobile phone, you could recoup the cost in less than six months. Using clean, sustainable energy, your solar power bank can sit on a sunny windowsill to absorb free energy. Then, you can power up your devices at home or on the move.
