New Universal, Energy Saving Phone Charger Approved [news.bbc.co.uk]
A new mobile phone charger that will work with any handset has been approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a United Nations body.

Industry body the GSMA predicts that 51,000 tonnes of redundant chargers are generated each year.

Currently most chargers are product or brand specific, so people tend to change them when they upgrade to a new phone.

However, the new energy-efficient chargers can be kept for much longer.

The GSMA also estimates that they will reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by 13.6m tonnes.

This is good news. Even if the charger is "extra $" and not included with your phone, in the long run it will be better. I hate having a drawer full of various chargers and power cords.

A very good move. One charger per household makes a lot more sense than one charger per phone, especialy when most are left on even when not in use. Just need to schedule when everyone can use it.

Of course it won't work with the iPhone...
