Mobile Phone Standby Timer Plug

shut off power when your mobile is fully charged

12.95 inc. VAT

We've all done it. Left a mobile phone plugged in and charging, and left it there, for long after it's actually fully charged. Like overnight... and perhaps the kids do it too.

Leaving a charger plugged in like this wastes a fair bit of energy - you can save though by cleverly using this Variable Rundown Timer Plug to turn it off after a set period.

From 30 mins to 3 hours, you control how much.

And you can use it on other devices too.




It takes about 1 to 2 hours for a phone to charge so leaving one charging all night wastes a fair bit of energy.

Use this Variable Rundown Timer Plug by Energenie instead. Set it for 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours or 8 hours - depending on how much charge you need - and it'll turn off whatever is plugged in to it after the pre-set time: so it's great for phones, laptops, televisions and anything else that you want to turn off after a set time.

So for example, you can leave your phone charging overnight, ready for when you need it, without wasting energy, by setting the timer plug to 1 hour.

How much could you save?
If you use a typical mobile phone charger and leave it plugged in and turned on all the time, by using this Variable Rundown Timer Plug you will save a lot of the energy you would have used. Here's an example:

Typical Mobile Charging Cycle - Without Timer Plug:
  • Charge mobile for 1 hour: uses 2 watts.
  • Mobile phone plugged in at wall for 7 hours after battery full: uses 14 watts.
  • Phone charger plugged in at the wall and turned on but no mobile phone connected, for 16 hours: uses 24 watts.
  • Over 1 year you would use: 14.6KWh.

Technical data
  • UK 3 Pin
  • Voltage: 220 - 250v ac 50Hz
  • 13 Amp maximum
  • Power usage in standby mode: <0.5W
  • Approved to: appropriate parts of BS5733, LVD and EMC directives
  • RoHS compliant

NB Variable Rundown Timer not only turns off after a set period of time it also turns on. So you can set it to come on after a preset period of 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours or 8 hours, this can allow you to control appliances for example when you are away from your home in a simple way, or to come on in the morning after a night's sleep.

Nigel Says

Nigel SaysMost of us leave phones charging overnight, when it usually only takes an hour or two to fully charge them. The ultimate standby saver is your index finger, which you can use to switch off a charger at the mains. But it's easy to forget to do that, and chargers left plugged in once their work is done are wasting energy. These plugs mean you can plug your phone in and forget about it.
