iGo can let You go green with the Power Smart Wall

I like the products from iGo. I have their mobile charging system and take it with me whenever and wherever I travel. As you probably know by now, I'm also really making an effort to be greener in most things I do, so when I saw this product, I thought it would be a good one to mention.

Most of us don't know this, but devices plugged into AC power outlets for charging continue to consume power even after reaching a full charge status. Of course what this means is a continuous unneeded use of power. To prevent this, the Power Smart Wall senses when charging has stopped and shuts down the outlet, thus saving power. The device plugs into a normal 2 outlet receptacle and uses that to power itself. It also has 2 other outlets (for a total of 4) that don't power down so that you can still use devices that always need power.

Here are the specs and a link to the website:
