So everyone is now aware of the watsted energy from chargers that are left plugged into the wall. But sometimes you need to leave you device plugged in to charge while you are out the house … what happens then? You battery fulls up and then power is just wasted as the charger continues to leak power until you return and unplug it.
Thats where the aptly named Leech Plug comes in… this awesome looking gadget knows when your device is fully charged and the plug drops off like a fat leech that has had as much as it possibly can. It’s a really simple idea, with some complicated engineering behind it.
Conor Klein’s Leech Plug has an integrated timer circuit and a mysterious array of “electromechanics” within, his AC outlet physically ejects the charging cord when the device on the other end is done charging. So you can have a really wierd and awesome gadget, cut down on electricity bills AND save the environment. Go leech go!
