If you leave your phone charger plugged in when you’re not juicing up your phone, you’re wasting a lot of electricity. Not only does this cost you cash, it’s also bad for the environment. Thankfully, ASMO Charger is here to help.
It’s the world’s first charger to only draw power when a phone is connected. You can leave it plugged in all day without worrying about harming the environment or you bank balance.
In other words, it’s economical, environmentally friendly and fire safe. What’s not to like?
According to the manufacturers, it charges “at up to twice the speed of standard chargers” too.
It has a long cable, so you won’t have to kneel on the floor to make calls while you’re charging.
If your phone is too old to have the USB On-The-Go feature found in most mobiles since the iPhone 4, you’ll have to press a button to start it charging. But it’ll switch off automatically when charged regardless.
It comes in versions for the UK, US and EU. If you want one, pledge $35 (£23) and it’ll be yours when it starts shipping in October. Company founder Asmo Saloranta was inspired after a personal tragedy – his fiancee’s family home burned down because of a fire caused by a mobile charger. Hopefully this gadget can help avoid any such future occurrences.
