New green charger announced by O2

9 December 2008 — 7:00 PM

The company behind the O2 network has announced it has created a mobile phone charger that is significantly more energy-efficient than standard models.

According to Telephonica O2, the new universal system will be up to 70 per cent greener than existing options - which could interest those with environmental concerns considering mobile recycling.

The UK mobile operator estimates that phones unnecessarily left on charge add up to around £30 million of annual energy waste in the UK.

Commenting on the new product, O2 chief executive Ronan Dunne said that the new charger addressed issues that were becoming increasingly important to the general public.

"The O2 Universal Charger offers customers a simple yet effective way of reducing the environmental impact of their phones and reduces the waste associated with charger disposal," he added.

It was also revealed this week that O2 would be bringing the new BlackBerry Curve 8900 to customers in the UK.
