Bracketron announces its new lineup of and eco-friendly mobile device chargers and batteries that feature GreenZero Technology. This exclusive technology totally eliminates wasteful stand-by consumption, also known as vampire power, which other chargers consume when they are left plugged into power outlets.
Bracketron’s GreenZero chargers detect when your device is fully charged or unplugged, and then automatically shut off. The chargers then consume zero idle power to save energy, while also lengthening the life of your device battery by limiting top-off charging time. Bracketron’s mobile device chargers make it easy to get rid of standby consumption, so that you no longer need to worry about unplugging your chargers or switching off a power strip to save energy.
