Just a thought but when a plug is plugged into a mains outlet, say for example a phone charger, is there a way to somehow do something to the plug so it doesn't sap any energy when plugged in but not connected to the phone so it can stay plugged in all the time without usong any...

My Dad came across this mob recently (Energy Saving Group | Subsidised Energy Saving Products) - a friend of his has been stung for £500 for what was supposed to be a free install (rent-a-roof type scheme).

I’ve just been contacted by Vphase about their free VX1 installation training courses.
This does open up a business opportunity and another source of work for electricians although I still have my doubts about their energy saving potential in a domestic setting.
They claim to reduce electric...
