To know how many watts of energy a cell phone uses to charge, you should check the package of your cell phone charger for the voltage of the charger. The average 12 volt charger will draw around 4 watts of power from the outlet while it is charging from a dead battery. A partially charged battery will draw around 2 to 3 watts of energy. Unplug your phone charger when it is not in use.
How many watts a phone charger uses depends on the actual charger. If you look at the label on the charger, it should list the amps and volts. You can find the watts by multiplying the volts times the amps.
