EU bill on the use of removable batteries

The European Parliament recently voted in favor of new legislation that will review its life cycle , από τη σχεδίαση έως το τέλος της ζωής τους. Η επερχόμενη νομοθεσία συμπεριλαμβάνει σημαντικές προειδοποιήσεις για τους χρήστες και τους κατασκευαστές smartphone.

Among the changes, the new regulations they require batteries in consumer devices such as smartphones are easily removable so they can be replaced. This isn't the case with most phones today, but it wasn't always the case.lithium ion

In older phones (think Nokia 5190, Nokia 3310, Motorola Razr V3, etc.), changing the battery could be done in seconds.
Most batteries were self-contained and could be changed by opening a cover.

But the manufacturers changed the batteries that could be replaced and preferred the "sealed" devices. Many consumers reacted to the change, but over time, most accepted it. New EU regulations could force manufacturers to use replaceable batteries again.

Not eι η πρώτη φορά που η ΕΕ παρεμβαίνει και προκαλεί αλλαγές.

Last year, the EU set a deadline for manufacturers on December 28, 2024, to use a USB-C port on all small electronic devices for charging.

This is of course a problem for Apple since iPhones use a dedicated Lightning port. Apple has already confirmed that it will comply with the regulation, which means we could see this year's iPhones come with USB-C (or next year's iPhones, at the latest) – at least, in the EU.
