Major mobile phone makers and carriers have signed on to support a universal, Micro-USB-powered charger. A rare good move for the environment and users. What other devices would you like to see go one-size-fits-all? via [PC World]


  • I think every device that uses the same power should use the same charger/connector. Conversely devices that need different power should never use the same connector.

  • About time! Laptop chargers should be the same, external hard drives, any chargeable and/or portable device. Sure, takes some doing, but bloody hell, think of how much better it would be: for maunfacturers, consumers, frequent travelers, business and hospitality concerns who want to provide good service and facilities, airports…..the list goes on.
