Members of the EU will take a vote to decide if it will enforce a universal charging connector for all smartphones and similar smaller electronics. Certain arguments in favour of this move cite the reduction of e-waste as one of the major advantages to this legislation, while also ensuring easy charging for smartphone users. A similar initiative was introduced in 2014 but was not enforced.

The USB Type-C port, popular with many android devices is seen as the likely standard option due to its reversibility of connection, charging speeds and data transfer rates. Apple however holds strong reservations to the proposed regulation, stating that enforcing the regulation is not a guaranteed way to cut back on electronic wastes, as everyone with non-compliant smartphone charger types will eventually have to dispose their old chargers, thereby generating more electronic waste.

As it stands, around 1 billion users worldwide make use of the Apple lightning port, making the idea of doing away with all these ports in a short period of time counter-productive. It remains to be seen what the future holds regarding this idea from the EU and its degree of practicality in the long run.

Unifying the whole world with one type of charging system? Wow! That would be a hell of a thing, I think Apple has a point sha cos doing this means I get to loose all my TECNO chargers I've been using all these while?

I think this will really make sense, that way no one has to worry about carrying chargers any more, you can go anywhere and use anyone's charger

Great concept, though I'm still wondering how this will be beneficial for the whole world to be using one type of charger

It's a good idea, but with many cyber security issues coming up almost every day, what's the guarantee that this is not an avenue to make access to peoples device all around the world more easier thereby breaching their privacy.

My TECNO charger is still intact for me.
