Lightning everything? In the US, they proposed to unify charging after the EU

A couple of weeks after USB-C was officially adopted by the European Union as a universal connector for all gadgets, a similar initiative was taken by a trio of Democratic senators from Apple’s homeland – the United States. In their letter to the US Department of Commerce, they called for the European bill to be followed, arguing that consumers need a single standard for chargers, which will help not only reduce e-waste, but also reduce the cost to consumers of purchasing new chargers.

Lightning всё? В США предложили унифицировать зарядки вслед за ЕС

The text of the letter mentions that the average consumer owns about three chargers, but even this does not always help: 40% of respondents said that at least once they faced the inability to charge their device due to the wrong connector. Thus, if the USB-C connector is adopted as a single standard in the US, we can talk about the final end of the history of the Lightning connector.
