New Travel Charger Shuts Off When Its Work Is Done

I hate setting my phone to charge overnight, knowing that after about two hours it will have 100% power and then spend the rest of the night needlessly draining electricity- and costing me money. But that’s about to change with the upcoming release of the Mushroom GreenZero Wall Travel Charger from Bracketron, which automatically shuts off – and stops using power – when your device is fully charged.

The Mushroom, whose name derives from its unconventional shape, comes in three varieties: micro USB, USB, and 30 pin (better known as the Apple connector), so it will work with just about any device. Its round shape allows you to wind the cable up so its easy to take on the go.

Bracketron is set to debut the Mushroom line later this month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
