Parliament approves common charging cable for devices

*European lawmakers have voted for a law requiring all new portable devices to use the same type of charging cable


IT News Nigeria:

The announcement came Tuesday that smartphones and tablets, including the Apple iPhone and iPad, would have to use a USB-C charger from 2024, while laptop manufacturers would have until 2026 to make the change.

IT New Nigeria gathered that member states are expected to grant approval on 24 October, before the rule is signed into law at the parliament.

EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager celebrated the new rule on Twitter, citing the “waste and inconvenience” of having multiple chargers.

The new rule will cover a range of “small and medium-sized portable electronics”, according the EU, including:

  • mobile phones
  • tablets
  • e-readers
  • mice and keyboards
  • GPS (global positioning system) devices
  • headphones, headsets and earphones
