Energy efficiency

Efficiency rating

The Sony Xperia™ portfolio of chargers is leading the industry in terms of efficiency and energy consumption. We introduced new chargers for our products in 2001 that already then met the 2004 EU Code of Conduct (CoC) recommendation. All phones sold globally since 2003 have chargers that meet the EU voluntary CoC for power supplies.

We participated in the development of a rating system for the energy consumption of mobile phone chargers as part of the Integrated Product Policy (IPP) pilot programme under the European Commission. Participating companies were major mobile phone manufacturers working to develop a rating system for charger energy efficiency in no-load mode. Our new standard chargers (for example EP-300, EP-310 and EP-800) have a no-load power consumption ≤30mW.

In addition to being industry leaders within the charger section, Sony Xperia™ phones use the most energy efficient batteries available.

Also, Sony Mobile is supporting the industry’s adoption of a standardised charger interface on all our phones and chargers.
