For Electric Customers
Battery charging systems are used to recharge a wide variety of cordless products such as power tools, small household appliances, cameras, video games, laptops and personal care products. Approximately 230 million products with battery charging systems are currently in use in American homes and businesses.
In the U.S. alone, more energy efficient battery chargers have the potential to save Americans more than 1 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy and more than $100 million annually, while preventing the release of more than one million tons of greenhouse gas emissions - equivalent to the emissions of 150,000 cars.
ENERGY STAR® certified battery chargers on average use 35% less energy than conventional models. Conventional battery chargers - even when not actively charging a product - can draw as much as 5 to 20 times more energy than is actually stored in the battery!
