Standardized Laptop Charger Approved By IEC

Standardized Laptop Charger Approved By IEC – December 17, 2013 at 04:09PM

Sockatume writes "The IEC, the standards body which wrote the phone charger specification used in the EU, has approved a standardised laptop charger. While the ‘DC Power Supply for Portable Personal Computer’ doesn’t have a legal mandate behind it, the IEC is still optimistic that it will lead to a reduction in electronics waste and make it easier to find a replacement charger. Unfortunately the technical documentation does not seem to be available yet, but previous comments indicate that it will be a barrel plug of some kind." I wish they’d push a yank-resistant and positive-connecting plug along the lines of Apple’s MagSafe.
