Universal phone charger deal approved

From the BBC

A deal’s been done between industry bosses and the European Commission in Brussels to work towards a ‘one size fits all’ charger.

It would mean an end to users having to hunt around for the right type of charger for their handset and should help cut waste.

Perfectly good chargers can often be thrown away if someone gets a new type of phone handset.

The deal isn’t legally binding though and, at this stage, is only voluntary.

But it means a universal charger, which will use a micro-USB connection, should be available by next year.
