The European Parliament and the European Council unanimously agreed on the 7th local time that the Type-C interface will be uniformly used in the EU for charging mobile devices from the fall of 2024.

The move is believed to help reduce e-waste and make it easier for users to buy mobile devices.

  According to the relevant regulations announced by the European Parliament on the same day, from 2024, all manufacturers of electronic equipment such as mobile phones, tablet computers, digital cameras and wireless headphones sold in the EU should unify the charging interface as Type-C, and manufacturers are selling these equipment. It is not necessary to distribute charging equipment.

According to statistics, this approach will save consumers 250 million euros a year and reduce 11,000 tons of electronic waste.
