As mobile phone use increases, and technology such as 3G
advances into every day mobile use, the amount of energy used is
increasing, having a profound impact on the environment1. During its
lifetime, a mobile phone uses a total of 260 megajoules of energy,
which is enough to power over 1,000 60-watt light bulbs for one hour2.
chargers are responsible for most of the energy consumption, with 95
percent of energy used by chargers wasted by not turning the power off
when a mobile phone is fully charged.
Energy saving tips that mobile phone users can employ to help save energy include.
1. Unplugging unused chargers: Always unplug mobile phone chargers
when the phone is fully charged or when not in use, eliminating
“standby” energy waste.
2. Deactivating unnecessary connections: Even while Bluetooth, WLAN and GPS aren’t being used, they still automatically connect.
Activate these features only when needed, as it can help reduce the
energy consumption process, reduce vulnerability to intrusion and also
optimize the mobile phone battery life.
3. Avoiding vibrate mode: Vibration alert is a physical support of
the mobile phone to get attention while ringing and is quite
energy-intensive. Activate the vibration alert only when necessary or
when the phone is set to mute and you need to be available. If the
ringtone is audible, there normally is no need for further alerts.
4. Adjusting display settings: High-resolution and high-quality
displays consume higher amounts of energy. To conserve energy, turn on
the power-saver and turn the light time-out settings to a shorter
period of time.
5. Switching off: Running applications, even if it’s an open
message, should be closed to conserve energy. Switch the mobile phone
off if it isn’t in use or in an out-of-service area.
