Re-use

If said charging phone can tap into your smart heating to reduce the boiler very slightly (in fact this is unnecessary as we all have thermostats) then this heating is only lost in summer. For the most part charging overnight is (housewise) energy lossless. Same with those old light bulbs. The energy isn't wasted.
