I just retrieved the copy of the patent for the charger device described above. This thing delivers about 13 volts at 1 amp maximum. Considering losses it draws about 15 watts of power form the AC powerline. So 10 cents a day for electricity is way over the actual cost, unless you have really really high electric rates.
