Chargers and energy use
This type of consumption is called phantom consumption and in the case of chargers it is very low. However, there are other devices that can increase your energy consumption without you realizing and make you pay a little more than you should.
In the content we have provided below, you can see that phantom consumption costs you 5 euros per month and being able to reverse this is valuable.
They are things that you leave on, even without realising, and it is an expense that we must at least take into account and control.
For example, phantom consumption occurs when you leave a “little red pilot light” on, or when something has an internal transformer that continues to work while it is plugged in (you will notice that it is hot, even if it is not charging or operating anything).
In short, it is important to control the energy use of large electrical appliances, devices that leave the “red pilot light” on standby, and not to leave power-consuming transformers plugged in, even if they are not plugged into anything. However, you should also not be obsessed, especially with mobile chargers and small devices, whose energy use is minimal and without which we will hardly notice a difference.
