Environmentally Friendly Phone Charger

Practice Digital Eco Living Right at the Source

With Earth Day a few weeks away on April 22, we have all things green on our minds. In the tech world there's a lot to consider; our favorite gadgets and smartphones are notorious energy hogs, requiring frequent recharging. Ease the guilt this month by cutting electricity right at the source — the power outlet. The Mushroom GreenZero Wall Travel Charger for iPhones ($35) and micro USB devices ($30) automatically shuts off when a product is fully charged, stopping out of control vampire energy.

Even when a phone or tablet has completed the charging cycle, since it usually remains plugged into the wall until used, energy consumption continues. The Mushroom GreenZero isn't available until May in most major retailers, so bookmark it now as part of the Earth Day to-dos. Plus, is it crazy to find a wall charger adorable?
