Europe wants a charger for all devices


The overwhelming majority of the European Parliament adopted a resolution yesterday, according to which companies technology must make one type of charger that will be compatible with all Appliances.

Lawmakers are calling for a common charger that can be used on different types of devices such as smartphone, tablet and e-book readers, for different brands.

In addition, the new resolution calls for more cables and chargers that can be recycled and reused so that consumers do not need a new charger with every new device they buy.

Similar suggestions have been made in the past, as opposed to Apple, whose cables lightning are not compatible with devices manufactured by competing companies. Other brands tend to use USB variants for charging.

Η Apple has not made any official announcement on the resolution yet. But in a statement last week, he said that creating a charger for all devices could limit innovation and create more environmental waste.

"The legislation will have a direct negative impact, disrupting the hundreds of millions of active devices and accessories used by our European customers and even more Apple customers worldwide," the company said in a statement.

The European Commission has been considering alternatives to this issue for a decade now. In 2009 many tech companies, including Apple, signed one pact, with which they promised to harmonize their chargers.

While Apple has switched to using chargers USB-C in some products, the company still does not allow its products to be used by other manufacturers.

The resolution adopted on Thursday calls on the Commission to submit by July the new "enhanced" rules. According to the Commission's work agenda for 2020, legislative action is expected to take place in the third quarter to create a common charger.
