It’s no surprise that electronic appliances use electricity when they’re on. What may come as a surprise, however, is that all of our devices continue to use electricity when they’re switched off. In fact, up to 10% of your electric bill is spent on appliances while they’re not even being used.
In addition, we distinguish some of the most used devices that consume electricity and when they are disconnected.
A charger without a phone – 1.2 W a day
A TV – 24 W a day
PCs and laptops – 96 W a day
A digital TV tuner – 22 W a day
Devices with a timer – 108 W a day
