Your iPhone Uses More Energy Than A Refrigerator

An iPhone uses more energy than a refrigerator? Yeah, but what good is that? You can't play Candy Crush and take duck-face selfies with a fridge. roll eyes (sarcastic)

The average iPhone uses more energy than a midsize refrigerator, says a new paper by Mark Mills, CEO of Digital Power Group, a tech investment advisory. A midsize refrigerator that qualifies for the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star rating uses about 322 kW-h a year, while your iPhone uses about 361 kW-h if you stack up wireless connections, data usage, and battery charging.
