I would just look at these reports like those carbon footprint reports released. Nothing more. Will give us an idea about what the footprint of these charging devices are.

Well. I think this research is great.

In fact, now that i know that charging a phone affects my mileage as little as the 3rd decimal place, I am even more inclined to leave the charger in the charging socket all the time.

Perhaps, i can NOT take the car to office one day in a year to offset all the emissions that I caused by these frivolous indulgences like charging the phone.

Actually turning off the DRLs during daylight and increasing in AC temperature by even a degree celsius saves for higher energy than USB charging ports saves
