Is wireless laptop charging green?

    Laptops are definitely “greener” than desktop computers, but plugging your laptop in to charge uses a fair amount of energy. However, given the alternative, laptops are the most energy efficient option. They most likely use less energy to manufacture than desktops, and there are additional benefits as well. They use an average of 80 percent less energy than desktops while operating, which is largely due to the fact that there is no monitor to be plugged in. There are debates as to whether a laptop is most efficient plugged in constantly or not, but the general consensus is to keep your laptop plugged in and frequently unplug it and let the battery run. Keep in mind that if the cord is plugged in you are still using energy, regardless of whether your laptop is attached or not!
