Stay tuned all day for 12 amazing giveaways for dads! Watch for a new one every hour on the hour!
Each year, vampire power — which is the energy drawn from devices that are plugged in but are not in use — wastes 10 billion dollars in the U.S. alone.
iGo would like to help fathers everywhere go green and save green with their line of iGo Green electronics, which reduces Vampire Power by up to 85 percent.
I’ve known about vampire power and how it wastes electricity and money for a couple years now, but I’ll admit that trying to remember to turn off our power strips each night feels like just one more thing when I’m already exhausted and ready for bed. I love that the Power Smart Wall outlet detects idle electronics for you, shutting down the outlet automatically to avoid vampire power usage.
Plus, iGo products also use an intelligent tip technology, which allows one charger to power/charge hundreds of brands and thousands of models of mobile electronic devices by using interchangeable tips. By using one charger for multiple products, it significantly minimizes electronic waste.
As someone who regularly replaces laptop cords because they’ve gotten bent and broken, I’m pretty sure the wall charger was designed just for me, not just for the energy savings, but also for the 90-degree plug that keeps the cord from getting broken as well as the changeable tips that will let me use the same charger even when I replace my current laptop!
One lucky Life Your Way reader will win an iGo Green Power Pack valued at $100, including:
- Slim Laptop Wall Charger
- Power Smart Wall with iGo Green Technology
- iGo Green bag with a Vampire Power Sucks t-shirt and garlic stress ball to keep those vampires away
