Universal phone charger approved
A new mobile phone charger that will work with any handset has been approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a United Nations body.
Industry body the GSMA predicts that 51,000 tonnes of redundant chargers are generated each year.
It has been one of my strongest wishes all these years. I have many chargers and it’s such a nightmare to grab the right one at the first glance. They are all black and stupid. I hate having thousands of chargers to keep me company. I could hug the gentlemen who signed the agreement which opens up a new era. These people understand me very good. No doubt about that. Congratulations, gentlemen ! Great job ! I am very proud of you.
