China Demands Standardized Cell Phone Chargers

AMEN

“Thanks to a move by China, multi-adapter phone chargers might be obsolete in the near future.

The country is demanding that its cell phone manufacturers switch to a standard input for recharging batteries in mobile handsets. It would be something similar to a USB port and would reduce electronic waste, since you wouldn’t be throwing out a charger every time you bought a new phone. “

Less dongly things – gooood. More dongly things – baaaaad.
