Unfortunately Amazon has stopped giving back the price difference!

So how long does it actually take to charge the batteries? To leave your computer running just to use this charger is probably going to cost a lot in electric. Maybe better to buy a standalone fast charger as the long run savings would probably be better.

500ma...or 6 hours I guess if you want to leave your computer on for that long, or just have it plugged in whenever you do switch your computer on.

Wouldn't they be better? ^^^^

And there is a 25p book you can add to take it over the £5 threshold, I think that's the cheapest item on there.

My PC still powers the USB ports when it's asleep

This'll be perfect for my USB mouse! Can have one set charging while the other is in the mouse, and no worries about wasting energy since the computer will be in use anyway.

nice waste of electricity but good for you

Well, unless you physically unplug it from the socket or turn it off there the power supply in any PC is still powered up 24/7 even when it is shut down. This is common to all desktop PC's matey.

How about this one? A complete and utter bargain!!!!!!

and this is why I turn mine off at the plug, I get a stupid glow on my keyboard (USB) when I shut down the PC. Putting the PC into sleep mode is like leaving your TV on standby mode.

I know, that's what sleep mode is meant for, up & running in 5 seconds. Shutting it down or hibernating is no different either, still using a tiny bit of power like a TV, & 101 other houshold appliances.

Quite right!
If you like paying a higher electricity bill or are a shareholder of your electricity provider and have calculated that the dividend received and share value increase outweigh the cost of leaving your PC switched on at the plug then it makes some perverse irresponsible sense - otherwise you are paying money for nothing! except not having to bend over and flick the plug.

A USB battery charger has some very positive applications when on the move with a laptop but seems a poor solution for the home and desktop PCs. Having replaced the power adaptor for my old PowerBook (about £70) I only use it plugged in when the battery needs recharghing and use a wall charger for AA's.

If I didn't put it to sleep it would stay on all day using more power. The amount used when it's asleep is minute, worth it for the convenience, at the end of the day that's my choice. I never said a USB charger was a good or bad choice for anything, or that I've got one, I don't as it happens.

You could use it at work when you are using the pc anyway. A full 8 hour day should get them all done surely.

Some sense at last, but technically theft I would think.

well, to show an example of why this is useful to me at least - my phone charges from usb cable, my mp3 player charges from usb cable, my camera battery can charge from usb cable, and i also have a 4 x AAA battery block with a USB female socket, so when i'm not anywhere near a power supply, i can charge stuff which uses USB. with this, i can charge batteries to store power for later use on my phone/mp3 player/camera, and, most importantly, when i travel to europe, i only need to take *one* plug to USB power lead, rather than having to worry about travel adapters for all my equipment. Quite simply, it's *so* much easier.

and i use my computer 24/7 anyhow, so the extra electricity costs don't exactly concern me (that, and i have all inclusive rent. it helps.)

Different size mate, the ones in this deal are AAA

dealextreme.com/det…388

Check the above site - the charger is about £1.75 and if you have your own batteries (AA or AAA) you'll be fine. I've used one of these for over a year!

And it is free delivery - but takes about 6-9 days!

Mine used to be aswell. And now they dont. Any idea why? I want them to be powered while the comp is off.

Haven't most people got DECT cordless phones? Don't bother with a charger - just get a spare set of batteries and swap them in the phone. Will save electricity too, as the phone sits there constantly charging the batteries even when they're full.

I think this only works in sleep mode, not hibernate or shut down, if it doesn't now it sounds like the power options for the USB hub in device manager have changed. Arent PC's wonderful!

Now:
"Price: £5.00 & this item Delivered FREE in the UK with Super Saver Delivery"
so no need to find a filler item ...

Not really going to use the usb charger because I got another charger but its nice to have a option of using usb connection.

£5 for 4x1000Mah is a good price on its own:thumbsup:
