Kermit the Frog always said it isn’t easy being green. Thankfully, today with all the power sipping AC adapters for notebooks and computers being green is easy. Kensington has unveiled a couple new notebook power adapters that are Energy Star qualified and work with lots of notebook brands.
The power adapters include the Wall Laptop Power Adapter K38074US and the Wall Laptop Power Adapter with USB Port K38077US. The two adapters are very similar with one notable difference, the K38077US packs in a USB port for charging your smartphone or other device while your notebook gets charged.
The version lacking the USB port sells for $69.99 and the version with the port is $79.99. Both will fit most major notebooks including those from Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Gateway, Acer, and lots more. Kensington claims that the adapters meet Energy Star requirements and use as much as 30% less power than other similar adapters.
