Saving energy never hurt anyone.  But let’s face it, you gotta recharge your gadgets at some point.  Unfortunately, most people leave their device’s plugged in longer than necessary and despite them reaching a full charge, they’ll continue to draw power, something known as vampire power.

In a perfect world we’d all have a sixth sense as to when their charge cycle is complete and simply unplug them.  The Dexim Visible Green Charger not only automatically shuts off power when the charge reaches 100%, but also visibly displays at what stage your device is at in the charge cycle.  At 1-65% the light, which mimics power flow by displaying a pulsating light through an illuminated cord, will flash at a fast rate of speed.  When it reaches 65-99% it will slow down and at 100% completely turn off.

It’s a brilliantly simple device.  And while it won’t save the Earth overnight, it will hopefully prevent one more carbon emission from entering our Earth’s atmosphere.  Dexim sells each on for $29.90 and includes a folding AC plug for added portability.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
