THE BRIGHTCHARGER™ DESIGN BATTERY CHARGER OPENS UP A WHOLE NEW WORLD

brightcharger-product

Did you forget to unplug your charger for the night?

People often keep their smart phones, laptops, tablets, electric toothbrushes, shavers or for example drills charging overnight or almost all the time. Or they simply forget to unplug their chargers.

However, device batteries can only be charged for a limited amount of time before they become useless. Why waste it? Keeping chargers plugged in when they’re not needed consumes unnecessary energy, wears down batteries and causes overheating of both batteries and the chargers themselves, which increases the risk of fire.

BrightCharger™ is a beautiful design charger, which automatically cuts off the electric current after a specified time. No more worrying about forgetting to unplug your mobile- or other battery-powered electronic devices or chargers for the night! With the BrightCharger™, a mobile device stops charging and, most importantly, the charger stops drawing power from the outlet automatically. After this, it functions as a soft and safe LED night light, which drains only a small fraction of the power that a normal charger does.

BrightCharger™ is always easy and simple to use.

What do you get when you combine a regular mobile device charger, an LED light, design, and a broken egg timer?

Energy savings

Charging stops automatically for both the mobile device and the charger.

Fire safety

Even standby consumption is cut off after the charging time is up.

A design product

Why can’t a charger be a beautiful object? BrightCharger™ is.

A night light

An LED light indicates whether charging is in progress and makes it easier to find the charger in the dark.

A smart charger

Impossible to use incorrectly.

How many nuclear power plants could you shut down?

If every person who owns an estimated two mobile- or other battery-powered electronic devices in developing economies and developed western countries were to switch to the BrightCharger™, the resulting energy savings would be enough to shut down six nuclear power plants around the world!

In reality the figure is most likely even higher since modern chargers drain a lot more power than the standby consumption of 2 watt hours per six hours a day used in this estimate. It is also probable that most households will have more than 2 mobile- or other battery operated devices. Nuclear power plants are estimated to yield 700 MW per hour with 8,000 usage hours per year.

How long do you charge your mobile- or other battery-powered electronic devices for? Calculate how many nuclear power plants could be shut down based on your charging habits if approximately 4.1 billion people from developing economies and developed western countries switched to using the BrightCharger™.

Number must be between 1 and 10! Please fill the required field!
Number must be between 0 and 24! Please fill the required field!

With your charging habits, switching to the BrightCharger™ would save enough energy to shut down at least {{(calculator.result/calculator.compere.nuclearPowerStation)|number:1|dotToComma}} nuclear power plants!

And the number keeps growing all the time. The number of Internet-enabled mobile devices is estimated to exceed 7 billion as early as this year. That’s more than the entire population of the Earth! By 2016, the number of mobile devices is estimated to exceed 10 billion. In addition to this you have to take into consideration the energy consumption of other household devices.

How important do you think this issue is? Would you choose a BrighCharger™ instead of a regular charger?

Congratulations!

You are one of the few people who remember to unplug their chargers once the charging time is up. Remember to do the same with all your mobile- and other battery-powered electronic devices, such as laptops, tablets, smart phones, electric toothbrushes and shavers. If everyone were like you, we never would have needed to build quite so many nuclear power plants in the first place.

I am currently looking for a global manufacturer and investor for my charger in order to make the energy savings that I’m aiming for possible. However, the only way to shut down these nuclear power plants is to make the BrightCharger™ a global success. My goal is no less than to change the entire mobile device business. I am optimistic that with this invention I will be able to influence energy policy within the European Union. I hope that the new generation BrightCharger™ will become the number one choice for all mobile device manufacturers and that every mobile device user will soon be using a BrightCharger. I also want to bring something beautiful to people’s homes by investing in the design of chargers and in new lighting features.”
