In an interview with Enterprise & Industry Magazine, European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani explains that the ambition of the Commission to harmonise chargers has no expiration date.
E&I Magazine:What is the state of play for mobile phone chargers?
Tajani: There are so many small electronic devices, such as digital cameras, tablets, GPS devices and music players, and a plethora of different chargers. The common charger standard for mobile phones is only a start. I am sure that a large majority of EU citizens would welcome a common charger for all small electronic devices. We would save millions of tonnes of electronic waste and would need fewer raw materials: all while providing comfort and convenience for consumers.
