 **Based on study, simply plugging the charger in an outlet uses an average of 0.26 watts of electricity. With a phone attached and actually charging, the number grew to 3.68 watts. This only means that even without any phone attached, the charger consumes a considerable amount of power. It recommended to unplug the charger after every use.
