Nokia has just introduced a new feature that supposedly will save enough energy to power 85,000 homes a year. Nokia’s entire product line as well as all future models will now alert owners encouraging them to unplug the charger after the phone’s battery is fully charged.

According to the press release:

Kirsi Sormunen, Vice-President of Environmental Affairs at Nokia said, “Around two-thirds of the energy used by a mobile phone is lost when it is unplugged after charging but the charger itself is left in a live socket. We want to reduce this waste and are working on reducing to an absolute minimum the amount of energy our chargers use. The new alerts also play an important role, encouraging people to help us in this goal by unplugging their chargers.”
