EU votes in favor of universal mobile charger

Awesome news for consumers in Europe who have to deal with the multitude of manufacturers that use proprietary adaptors for no clear purpose. Note: I exclude Apple from the ‘no clear purpose’ category, as lightening adaptors are wickedly more awesome to use than microUSB. This is a fact I’m reminded of every time I plug in my Android phone and wife plugs in her iPhone. Especially when doing so in dimly lit situations (i.e. almost every night in the dark).

On that note, USB Type-C connectors (which, like lightening connectors, will fit into ports regardless their orientation) cannot come soon enough!
