Most mobile handsets these days are standardized toward MicroUSB-B type connector. I don't see why the laptop makers can not agree to USB-A type connectors to standardize...

There are also some significant environmental advantages to the new specification. It's as much intended to reduce e-Waste as it is an added benefit for end users and engineers.

For anyone parents who have already obtained a Fisher Selling price Power Wheels car, sooner or later you may have to as well as should invest in a replacement battery-charger. Nevertheless , sad to say, only some Power Small wheels battery charger equipment are made precisely the same, have the identical poor quality, center d'appel tunisia identical features if not more importantly aren't going to be universally best with your unique vehicle's power supply.

Specification for universal charger

I liked the new IEC specification for a universal charger for notebooks and laptops. This will stop the practice of each laptop/notebook manufacturer supplying a proprietary charger and thereby charging premium price for the same though internally most of the chargers do the same function.

Similar standard is also necessary for mobile phones
