Earlier this year phone manufacturers announced to bring in a universal phone charger in a bid to improve the mobile industries environmental outputs. Today an agreement was signed at European Parliament to see it happen. Many of the phone companies responsible for giving us a million different chargers agreed to sign up for it but now the deal has gone through the European Commission, it can finally go ahead.

 

However it’s not actually law, but completely voluntary. How good would it be though to finally be able to use everyone else’s chargers without having to carry yours with you everywhere you go. The new chargers will use mini-USB and should be arriving with our phones some time next year…..hopefully
