Finally a single port for mobile devices?

It has certainly already happened to many of you that the battery of a mobile phone or other mobile device has been discharged at just the wrong time. Although most modern phones and tablets already use the USB Type-C interface, there are still a few manufacturers on the market who insist on their connectors. It seems that these inconveniences will soon end, as most mobile devices are expected to have a single charger or charging port.

The European Union is drafting legislation that will force mobile device manufacturers to use a single port to charge their products. As expected, a USB Type-C port was selected for charging mobile phones. This can already be found on the rich range of mobile devices. This also includes cheap smartphones and tablets from China.

The forced use of the single port on the European market will undoubtedly benefit both mobile users and the environment. The European Union alone imports more than 500 million mobile chargers a year. This will, of course, significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a result. There will also be a reduction in the number of chargers that users throw away when they consider buying a new mobile device. This, in turn, will help reduce the amount of e-waste.
