Updates on Common Charger Proposal

The European Commission (EU) of Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU amended is establishing a single charing solution for certain electronic devices.

The goal for this action is to make USB Type-C the standard charging port for all types of electronic devices, including phones, cameras, and tablets. By 40 months after the law takes effect, laptops must be updated to meet the standards.

Consumers will be given clear information about the charging characteristics of new devices, making it easier for them to determine whether or not their current chargers are compatible. Customers will also have the option of purchasing new electronic equipment with or without a charging device.

According to the European Commission, a provisional agreement has been achieved between Parliament, the Council, and the Commission to broaden the RED for the common charging standards.
