Common Mobile Phone Charger a Possibility
How many people have a different charger for every mobile phone either at home or at work? Also when we buy a new phone how often do we have to buy a new charger?
I personally find this very frustrating and when I buy a new mobile phone I have to buy a new charger and what can I do with the old one despite the fact that it still works? My old chargers normally end up at the local recycling centre.
I am sure that many of us suffer the same frustrations. Now there may be an end to all of this thanks to the EU. The EU is proposing to make mobile phone manufacturers make interchangeable chargers.
For its current range of iPhones, iPods and iPads Apple uses its own proprietary connector called “Lightning” but most other smart phones do have interchangeable micro USB chargers.
A provisional deal has been structured by MEPs and the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of Ministers to make universal chargers a reality. The justification for this is that it will cut the costs for consumers and prevent unnecessary wastage.
Hopefully this will be one good thing that will come from the EU.
