EU All Set To Introduce New Era Of Smartphones With Easily Replaceable Batteries

The European Union is moving ahead with some major plans in the tech world and that includes launching an era of smartphones that we’ve never come across before.

Think along the line of mobile with batteries that consumers can replace themselves with ease. Moreover, during the start of the week, we saw how the European Parliament set out some more rules and regulations on this front including the design, assembly, and even recycling of batteries that could be recharged and sold across the European Union region.

Such new laws claim all kinds of electric-powered vehicles, industrial batteries, and scooters running on electric power would require the right carbon footprints, labels, and also passports to get things moving in the right direction.

As far as portable batteries are concerned, they’re used in so many different devices like cameras, tablets, and even mobiles so that consumers may use them with ease and replace them when necessary.

Did we mention how it would be needing some sort of a new kind of drastic plan in place so that manufacturers of smart devices and tablets wouldn’t be required to seal it like in the past or use special tools and skills to attain access and carry out the best replacement?

As we speak, leading iPhone maker Apple was forced by the EU to alter lightning ports to those based on USB-C technology for iPhones. And the first model to make this drastic change would be the iPhone 15 device.

Now, it looks like Apple needs to really figure things out the right way to attain better access to batteries in devices in the future. But this would be for all those involved in the smartphone-producing industry.

The new regulations in place are also mentioning how they’re giving rise to stricter targets to accumulate waste and remove old materials from the batteries that could be collected and recycled later on.

There have been proper levels set so that recycled content could now be a part of every single device out there today.

We can see how so many members of the EU are excited about this new breakthrough change and hope to endorse the rules as soon as possible. So far, they’ve attained the majority of the votes, 587 to be exact and the figure of those against this policy currently stands at just nine.

As far as when the law comes into effect is concerned, that would be in 2027.
