Ending The Redundancy In The Indian Charging Space

Keen on de-cluttering the home and office space, the government is chewing over the idea of having a common charger for all devices. It will not only relieve the masses of carrying the clutter but e-waste would also be cut significantly. People from the industry will have a meeting with the government later this week. These will include mobile makers and sector-specific organisations. They will collectively analyse if reducing the multiplicity of chargers is possible in India.

Global Call

“If companies can serve in Europe and the US, why cannot they do it in India? Portable electronic devices like smartphones and tablets should have a common charger,” an official from the consumer affairs ministry told PTI. It is noticeable that governments around the world are looking forward to such a policy for electronics. By 2024, the EU will adopt the common charging standard for small electronic devices (USB-C port). At the same time, the US is also mulling over a standard policy.

Sustainability Goals

The global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the international call by PM Modi to adopt LiFE (Lifestyle for the Environment), both call for the implementation of 3Rs. Modi had said, “Mission LiFE borrows from the past, operates in the present and focuses on the future. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are the concepts woven into our life.” Our nationally determined climate targets also sanction such an idea.

Sane Shopping

Needless to say, our environment is filled with numerous electronics equipment. From laptops to mobile phones to tablets and even earphones, all have specific and separate charging requirements. But having a single, universal charger for all their needs will improve convenience for users. It will also enhance sanity and sustainability in electronics shopping. The top mobile phone brands in India, like Samsung, Oppo etc., use Type-C charging ports. While laptop brands like Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo have adopted Type-C charging, mostly custom charging ports are provided.
