USB type C to be mandatory in India very soon and India will get rid of the problem of keeping separate chargers, all phones will have the same port.
There is a demand for a common charger for compatible devices in many countries. Meanwhile, now India is also going to make USB-C type a common charging port for smart devices. Recently, the government ended discussions with stakeholders to make charging ports standard for all compatible smart devices. This was announced by Consumer Affairs Secretary Rohit Kumar Singh during a meeting.
USB-C is an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable. The USB-C connector has been developed by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). USB-IF has over 700 member companies. These members include Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, Microsoft and Samsung.
With the introduction of this common port, people will not need to buy a new charger for a new device every time. In a government task force meeting, all stakeholders have agreed to adopt USB Type-C as the default charger for all phones. The government is looking for a common charger for all phones, tabs, laptops and other portable devices.
Advantages of USB C type in India
UBC Type-C charger is much faster than any other charger. It’s also faster than Apple’s Lightning charger. It also costs less than Apple’s Lightning charger. Let us tell you that the European Union has made Type-C charger mandatory for all smartphones by 2024. In such a situation, Apple also had to accept this decision. With this new rule, the public will be able to use the old charger only in new phones. This will also help in reducing e-waste.
