I leave my charger plugged into my Monster surge protector all the time. I dont leave my macbook plugged in all the time though, only when my battery is low. Is this constantly using electricity? and is this ok for the charger?
Far be it from me to challenge Mad Jew, but I'm pretty sure that even when an item is plugged into a surge protector there is at least some electricity being used.
Some "green" websites indicate that anytime an item is plugged in to an outlet it is drawing at least a small current of electricity. If you're concerned about electricity, a surge protector that stops "phantom" use may be of interest.
o i c. I guess i will unplug and plug it in every time i need it. The only thing is that my monster surge protector is in the back of my tv stand and its in a tight spot. I suppose i will just have to deal with it, especially because i dont pay my electric bill.
