Each year Vampire Power, the energy drawn from devices that are plugged in but are not in use, wastes 10 billion dollars in the U.S. alone. iGo would like to help fathers everywhere go green and save green with their line of iGo Green electronics, which reduces Vampire Power by up to 85 percent.
Plus, iGo products also use an intelligent tip technology, which allows one charger to power/charge hundreds of brands and thousands of models of mobile electronic devices by using interchangeable tips. By using one charger for multiple products, it significantly minimizes electronic waste.
While I wasn't able to try the iGo Green laptop charger personally (it's not compatible with Macs), I really love the concept of being able to save on wasted standby power. I was able to try the wall plugin with this technology though, and I love the fact that it basically deactivates two outlets unless it detects that power is needed. This eliminates the need for power strips or manually unplugging items not in use to control vampire energyI hope that more companies adopt this technology to save on wasted energy!
One (1) lucky reader will win an iGo Green Power Pack valued at $100, including:
- Slim Laptop Wall Charger
- Power Smart Wall with iGo Green Technology
- iGo Green bag with a Vampire Power Sucks t-shirt and garlic stress ball to keep those vampires away
