With technology surging ahead everyday, people tend to forget that almost everything that makes your life easier or provides entertainment requires energy. Computers, Phones, TVs and even tablets are now part of the everyday routine for most people. All of these devices need charging but do they need to be plugged in and powered up all the time?
