EU pushes forward to unify mobile phone chargers

If you are annoyed by all the different ports, power outputs, and fast charging standards spanning various mobile phone chargers, you are not alone. The EU has had the same concern for the last decade, and now they are pushing forward to explore options to remedy the charger problem by themselves.
Old chargers are a source of more than 51,000 tons of electronic waste every year according to the European Commission. If the tech industry does not make a unilateral move to resolve charger fragmentation, the European Union might take action to drive its desired outcome.
