For just 10p more than a standard small pin AC-3X charger you can get this energy saving charger which reduces the standby consumption by 90%! I just noticed this after my previous post, so sorry for the similar post - but I think this one is more interesting.

Genuine Nokia High Efficiency Charger AC-8X uses 94% less power than conventional charger designs. Charge your battery with a clear conscience. The AC-8X charger minimises the no load energy consumption in case you forget to unplug it from the power socket. This environmentally friendly multi-voltage charger helps you to make a big energy saving difference. If you forget to unplug, this green performer uses just 10% of the standby power used by conventional chargers. Try not to forget though! Charge any Nokia device with a Nokia 2 mm charging interface. Supplied unboxed.

Lots of other chargers on discount too -

The figures don't seem to add up.
#2
These charge the phone MILES faster then the smaller square ones. Probably by more then half.

So they probably damage the batteries as well then?

That would depend on what assumptions you are making.

94%+10%=104%. No assumption needed.

Eh? You can't just add those two figures together in any meaningful way.

I can if I want :lol: Percentages are pretty meaningless anyway. 90% of nothing is still nothing. We need to know the actual power used at standby on a standard charger to see if this really makes any difference. Bet we're talking a saving in the milliwatt range ;-)

If it damaged batteries they wouldn't be allowed to sell them.

Do rapid-boil kettles damage your plugs or elements ???

its not 90% + 10%
its 90% saving when in standby thereby using only 10% of conventional chargers power
but only when in this standby mode
I would guess that when charging the saving would be 0% so no detremental effect on the battery

Looks a great deal and just what i need at the moment, however......

the reviews online about this retailer and the lack of even a telephone number or address on their website is putting me off ordering.....not voting either way unless someone can convince me otherwise :whistling:

Won't all chargers be micro usb soon? Wouldn't be very eco to but this then throw away after you have upgraded.

This is correct, they will be.

These chargers are brilliant. They do charge faster - and as the rate they can charge at falls as the battery charges - they reduce what they are pumping into the battery. Once the battery is full - they offer a tiny charge of less than 10% the normal charge to keep the battery full.

They also will pay for themselves in under a year on what you can save on electricity.

I posted them before christmas - but someone spammed it and I never bothered reposting as its happening with too many posts now so it seems pretty worthless posting deals.

HOWEVER - Millions of these have been produced - and Nokia is following the guidelines and moving from their dedicated 2mm charging socket to the new micro USB standard - which means there is a glut of these about.

Resulting from this - mine were £3 for two on Amazon delivered - and similar prices have been available on Ebay too - so I cannot say this is a hot deal - although its a brilliant product.

Its worth adding I have seen them as low as £1 delivered on Ebay - but they were £1.80 delivered last week when I was looking to replace one I had given to my aunt. Although its Ebay - it was a mainstream shop clearing stock - for far less than they were doing them on their site too (Emart Buy i think).

A Nokia charger plugged in but not charging uses less than 0.5 W. I.e. if left on and not used over an entire year, the cost will be about 50 pence per charger. Don't go out and buy this charger unless you otherwise need a charger, the pay back time is 5 years!

Must have ordered 20 or so times from then, never had any bother.
It's even better now they've dropped their delivery charges as you used to have to order a few things to get good value.

I probably buy from 7DayShop once a month, and have done for a couple of years. I've had USB memory sticks go missing in the post and I've had no problem getting them to send me a free replacement. From personal experience, I'd certainly recommend them.

They do indeed charge the batteries super fast and I get 4-5 days use out of a charge (I don't make many calls). They don't do any harm to the batteries because newer Nokia batteries are designed to be charged this way.

However, I believe quite a few house fires throughout the UK every year are caused by leaving chargers plugged in and switched on while not in use, so no matter how much this plug saves in stand by - switch it off at the wall or unplug it!

Phone chargers use virtually no power anyway, so I can't see any reason to go out of your way to get an energy-saving one.

Why don't people just learn to unplug things after using them?
#22
On my Nokia 5800 it tells you to remove the charger to save energy once it is fully charged :)
#23
are there any other brands of these? I'd be interested in a Sony Erricson one!
#24
Nice find,

Ordered 6 for work.

I think some of you need to take an eco chill pill and maybe look at car sharing. do that for 1 day this year and it will be better for the whole world!

I got this charger with my Nokia 5530. It's completely true that this is energy efficient. I leave mine plugged in 24/7 and it's never warm to the touch, unlike my other chargers. Bargain. Heat added from me!
#26
Does anyone know where I could get one of these for Sony Ericsson phones please?
#27
think this is a bit of a scam. sure, it might charging my phone a bit faster might be a good thing, but the whole 'uses less power when on standby' selling point is a loada balls.

I have a charger that uses 100% less power when on standby, it's called switching the plug off! Just another example of capitalists using the whole global warming and energy efficient market ploy again.

If this charger's main selling point was that it charge the phone quicker, I'd add heat. as it's not I'm afraid it's a cold vote from me.

Shame on you.

It does actually charge the phone a lot faster. I made the mistake of just picking up any old charger that fitted my phone at work. When the phone was flat, the charger wasn't even able to charge the phone fast enough to sustain me listening to music over bluetooth, never mind actually charge the battery. This charger (which is the same as supplied with my 5800) can charge the phone to full in about an hour.

my charger stays on all the time because i have only one free socket which has a 4-way extender with no switches and to get to the switch its a hassle plus the last 4 nokia phones ive bought since the n70 have came with energy saving chargers 2.35 for an official charger is cheap regardless of energy saving

Cheap for a genuine nokia charger.

How about unplugging the charger? that's another way of turning it off...

I leave my chargers plugged in permanently, Sky on permanently plus most of my tv's on standby. Deal with it. :w00t:
