Size of iPhone components, including battery, are also smaller. So in a way the GS3 is kind of a bargain.

It's between 6-24 cents depending on the state and basically the price is lower in some states because of excess capacity (Washington state idles wind farms for instance).

BTW, this article made me want to buy an iPhone over a GS3 so I could take advantage of all that savings. I mean WOW! $0.12! That's more than 3% of a cup of coffee! With those kinds of savings, I can pay off my student loans, buy a new car and fly first class!

I don't think anyone cares about how much it costs for a whole year, since it's not that big of a deal

So that's what it costs to charge the phone to run it. But what about what it costs to leave the charger plugged in all the time?
