You probably want it. Most people will. Myself included. Each iteration of iPhone brings arguably the next most coveted smart phone, but with all the new specs and features, the iPhone 5 is still an energy vampire.
Even with the revamped adapter, Lightning, that replaces the standard 30-pin Apple adapter and promises higher output performance, the iPhone 5 still ships with a standard vampire charger. We’ve all witnessed the evolution of smart phones, but as charger technology has evolved, large mobile device players haven’t.
Apple will most likely sell tens of millions of these devices, and like every other ubiquitous mobile phone sold, they will ship with an energy-wasting charger. The simple step of replacing the vampire charger with a Vampire Proof™ charger would save untold amounts of unnecessary emissions and wasted electricity.
In the foreseeable future, laws will require all chargers to eliminate vampire energy loss, because our energy demands are high enough for the energy we actually use that it’s absurd so much is thrown away by inferior, outdated products and technologies.
Really, it shouldn’t have to come down to regulations. Vampire Proof™ technology and chargers are low cost and available today, and they fill a much needed gap in the evolution of the often forgotten devices that power our most indispensable things.
