Motorola Offers Energy-Efficient Chargers for Mobile Devices and Bluetooth-Enabled Products

ENERGY STAR-qualified products are approximately 40 percent more efficient

than conventional models

Mar 27, 2007, 01:00 ET from Motorola, Inc.

    ORLANDO, Fla., March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CTIA Wireless 2007 --
 Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:   MOT) announced today that it is the first major cell
 phone manufacturer to redesign all its mobile phone and accessory chargers
 (external power supplies) to be ENERGY STAR-qualified. ENERGY STAR is
 designed to help consumers identify energy-efficient products which meet
 strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection
 Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Energy (DOE).
     Climate change is widely recognized as one of the greatest challenges
 facing the world today, and Motorola is doing its part to help protect the
 environment and spur innovative solutions such as ENERGY STAR-qualified
 power supplies.
     "EPA salutes Motorola's leadership as the first company to ensure all
 of the power adapters in their phone chargers earn the ENERGY STAR," said
 Bill Wehrum, Acting EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. "By
 being more energy efficient, ENERGY STAR-qualified adapters reduce
 greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution associated with the generation
 of electricity."
     According to EPA, if every phone sold in the U.S. this year used an
 ENERGY STAR qualified adapter in its charger, the energy saved could light
 760,000 homes for a year. In addition, it would prevent well over 1 million
 tons of greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent emissions of more than
 200,000 cars.
     "At Motorola, we realize the importance of helping to protect the
 environment," said Greg Estell, Corporate Vice President and General
 Manager, MobileME, Motorola, Inc. "As a leading provider of consumer
 electronic products to millions of American homes, Motorola is dedicated to
 providing solutions, like ENERGY STAR-qualified chargers, that help improve
 the everyday lives of consumers."
     The ENERGY STAR logo will be incorporated on the packaging of
 Motorola's aftermarket wall-charging solutions so consumers can easily
 identify energy efficient products.
