The collective energy wasted in powering handheld electronics has become a Global issue. Most of the energy wasted while charging a mobile device occurs within the charge. On an individual basis, the amount of energy wasted per year is negligible. However, there are hundreds of millions of chargers in use today. The large-scale incorporation of energy efficient chargers benefits the planet both economically and environmentally. The MU series does its part by using the latest technological design to produce a high efficiency wall adapter which consumes one half watt of power during idle conditions.
