Your iPad, be it old or new, has a pretty significant battery to keep that badboy running for the day or two between charges, right? So every time you charge it, that’s got to add up, right? So just how much is it costing you to plug in your iPad and top up the juice every couple of days?
According to the Electric Power Research Institute, charging your iPad every other day for a year will cost you just $1.36. For the entire year. That’s nothing! By their own research, a year of use of a CFL bulb will set you back $1.61, a desktop $28.21, and a fridge $65.72. And with people using their tablets instead of larger devices, that translates to overall power saving.
Even better, your iPhone 4 only takes $0.38.
So now, whenever anyone complains about you spending too much time on your iPad, you can just say you’re helping save the environment.
