The Electric Bill

Your parents always told you to turn off the lights when you leave a room. Now in the digital age they might be asking you to unplug your cell phone charger.

Unbelievable as it may be stanby power can take up to 10-15%. Now, obviously you need to keep that refrigerator plugged in at all times, but do all of your other devices need to be plugged in 24/7? Your electrical devices drain more power than you can imagine. When these appliances are "off" they still drain as much as 95% of the power when they are on. So if you are not using it--unplug it.
