This report presents a design for an efficient AC adapter that uses 85% less power than conventional adapters when idle, for an additional cost of only $1.21. The design exceeds the team's initial targets of 75% increased power efficiency at a cost of $1.30. The team logically derived the final polling design from three initially proposed solutions. This project addresses the inefficiencies of modern AC adapters, whose increased utilization has become an increasing detriment to both economy and environment.
