EU-directive Ecodesign or „Energy-using products“
New power adapters reduce environmental pollution. The regulation 278/2009 is valid since 27th April 2010. Already one year later the lost motion consumption for power adapters has been limited to 0,5 watts.
Since 2012 it has been tighten to 0,3 watts.
All this saves the environment as well as the money bag of the end users, because they can save very early about 10,00 EUR per power adapter per year.
Only in Germany by EUP about 6,8 million tons of CO2 are prevented every year.
