The legal requirement that all electronic products, including smartphones, tablets, and cameras, marketed by 2024, use USB-C charging connectors has received final approval from EU member states.
The legislation, which intends to unify the different charging inputs of various electronic devices, including USB-C, Micro USB, and Lightning, and to reduce electronic waste, has been accepted by the member states, according to a statement from the European Union (EU) Council.
The newly adopted rule specifies that USB-C will be the new industry standard for charging ports in portable electronics.
By the end of 2024, USB-C charging connections will be a standard for all new smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, headphones, portable video game consoles, speakers, and keyboards.
