The Mushroom Green Zero travel charger from Bracketron is just such a device and it’s a great choice for anyone seeking a travel charger for their next trip.

This charger uses up to 30 percent less power than a standard charger and it has a couple of really clever features to conserve energy. First of all that big green button activates it, so it doesn’t automatically charge when you plug in your smartphone or tablet. The LED indicates when it is on and charging. It has zero standby consumption. When your device is fully charged it automatically shuts off which not only saves energy, but can also help to extend the life of your battery.
The fact that it folds up and you can wind the cord around it for easy storage in your luggage makes it a great choice for traveling. It also has a standard USB port so it will work with a wide variety of different devices, including Android smartphones, tablets, handheld game consoles, digital cameras and GPS systems. It retails for $27.95 on the Bracketron website.
