The European Parliament’s Consumer Protection Committee has adopted a directive introducing a single charger for all electronic devices.

The directive stipulates that consumers should not buy a new charger or cable for each new device, but that they can use one USB-C charger for all small and medium electronic devices.

These include phones, tablets, speakers, laptops, mice, screens, navigation devices, personal care devices, digital cameras, headphones, handheld consoles, electronic toys and more.

The directive, among other things, aims to reduce electronic waste and ensure sustainability in the European Union market.

“Half a billion chargers for portable devices are delivered to Europe every year, generating 11,000 to 13,000 tons of e-waste. The same charger for all devices is a better solution for everyone. That will help the environment, save money and reduce unnecessary costs, “said Alex Saliba, a member of the European Parliament.
