Mobile charging had always been a problem. You, as a Nokia user won't be able to use a charger that's used for other brand's phones. Be it an L.G., or a Samsung, it's one and all the same. But what if you get one charger that can be used for all the phones, no matter what the brand is. Some thing similar will happen once the memorandum is passed.
Sounds quite astounding, doesn't it? But how will the new system work? According to the report, the manufacturers will adopt the Micro USB connector across all their devices from next year, meaning that dozens of different handsets can be charged using a single plug.
The European Commission has been putting pressure on mobile phone makers to reach an agreement on a universal charging standard in an effort to cut down on the thousands of tons of waste generated each year by the inclusion of unwanted chargers with every new handset.
Once the new system is incorporated, it's believed that the same will extensively help in consuming energy, and the waste and easily be checked. The G.S.M.A., the trade organisation that represents the mobile phone industry, said that the new universal chargers will consume half as much energy when on standby as today's charging cables. Needless to say, looking at its pro's the technology experts have welcomed the announcement.
