Apparently, we technology fans have an average of 12 gadgets on standby or charging at any given time, which means some serious carbon is being needlessly created.

This universal remote control can turn off up to eight TVs, set-top boxes, DVD players and personal video recorders, making it a lot easier to cut electricity bills as well as emissions.

The URC 8308 Kameleon universal remote control costs £70 inc VAT, and will be available in Argos from August.
