On January 31, 2020, the European Parliament nevertheless approved the very resolution providing for the adoption of a unified standard for charging mobile devices to reduce electronic waste – 582 deputies voted for the decision, with 40 votes against and 37 abstentions. The document calls on the European Commission to adopt new rules by July, so that with the purchase of a new device, customers no longer have to purchase a new charger each time.To begin with, it is worth recalling that since 2009, the European Commission has urged technology companies, including Apple, to use a single charging standard instead of proprietary. Now, members of the European Parliament believe that it didn’t work out in a good way, and it is necessary to resolve this issue at the legislative level. The resolution emphasizes that wireless chargers are an effective way to reduce electronic waste, but it is noted that the rules to be developed by the European Commission should ensure the compatibility of chargers with phones of various brands
