Portable Power Goes Green with iGo

Posted by at 3:06 pm on December 15, 2009

iGo has launched three new power products featuring iGo’s proprietary and patent-pending iGo Green Technology. Using up to 85% less standby power than standard power management products, the iGo eco-friendly products featuring green technology include the first-ever green laptop charger and the only automatic power-reducing surge protectors on the market, in both four and eight-outlet units.

Vampire Power, or the energy drawn from devices that are plugged in but not in use, wastes 10 billion dollars annually in the U.S. alone. The iGo Green Technology products detect when a device is not in use and shuts off the power drawn from the wall-ā€¯eliminating Vampire Power to help consumers conserve resources. Then, the iGo green power management products automatically turn back on when they detects that power is needed again.

“Whether we realize it or not, devices continue to draw precious power from the wall, even if the devices are not in use,” said Michael D. Heil, president and chief executive officer of iGo. “While it’s impractical for consumers to unplug their devices every time they are not being used, iGo Green Technology products make it easy for consumers by automatically reducing the standby power that each device draws.”

iGo Green Technology power management products, which exceed Energy Star standards, could have saved U.S. consumers more than $300 million last year. Available at www.iGo.com, iGo Green Technology products include:
