Great one!

Instead of charging your cell phone and other electronics daily, only charge them every other day. Power down cell phones and iPods when not in use. Also, instead of charging electronics over night, charge them during the day, since leaving them plugged in overnight wastes energy.

Great one!

The best move is to only charge them when the battery is almost dead - it also helps to extend the battery life. Furthermore, charging them overnight or during the day is a moot point - it only wastes energy if it is plugged in longer than is needed for it to be fully charged, making time of day irrelevant. To wit, only charge it until it no longer needs to be charged, then unplug it or turn off the power source. So, if you are more likely to notice when it finishes charging at night (like keeping it in the same room you are working in or watching tv or reading a book, etc.) then by all means, charge it at night.
