Is it dangerous to leave chargers for phones and other devices plugged in even though nothing is attached to them? Not asking watt usage? Help please

If it is the original that you bough with the device yes it won't explode or anything bad except it will consume little amount of electricity. But if it's a Chinese or other counterfeit for sure it will someday.

charger draws an average of 3.68 watts when the phone is on and charging; 2.24 watts when it is on and charged; and 0.26 watts when it is just hanging out in the socket.

Its not a problem, Any commercial available DC/AC converter is designed to be able to run with no load (Nothing connected to it). BUT, even when there is nothing connected to it, they draw some power, which can show up on your electricity bill if you got like 30 chargers plugged in 24/7 (and even then it will be just cents).

You can feel free about this. My father is an electrician, he said that chargers won't explode so do not worry. When not plugged in most wall chargers for smaller gadgets like digital cameras, cell phones, MP3 players, etc. draw a fraction of the power they use when charging something. Most end up using somewhere between 0.5 to 2 watts when plugged in (but not connected to a device), which isn’t a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. Even if you completely forgot about a charger and left it plugged in all day, every day for a month you’d probably end up adding at most about 10 or 15 cents to your electric bill.

My experience says YES. DON'T LEAVE AN UNATTENDED CHARGER, WHETHER BEING USED OR NOT. You can also read that precaution in almost every electronics manual.

I believe it is ok, But not with older devices (6+ Years.) since they might not have a limiter after it charges so it might just keep pulling causing the battery to either leak acid or explode or worst case scenario a fire. Unlike newer devices where the producer knows your going to leave it plugged in all night and installs limiters on them. Sure it will pull a little after its charged but not as much as a it was when it was charging.

NO problem like your monitor standby led or phone in standby mode consumes very very less power
