The Swiss government plans to oblige manufacturers of smartphones and tablets to move to a universal charger. It is expected that the transition to a single charger will not only help consumers, but will also reduce the number of "e-wastes".
The authors of the initiative have not yet set a uniform standard for chargers. But, apparently, it will be the micro-USB, since this type of connection is used in many mobile devices.
It is about creating a single charger that would be suitable for any model of mobile phones, regardless of the brand. A single charger will make life easier for millions of mobile phone users.
But more importantly, vendors will be able to sell the phones without chargers, which will not only reduce the cost of the set, but will also reduce the volume of resources consumption and emissions, according www.androidcommunity.com.
