The days of scrabbling around to find the correct mobile phone charger are to end after a landmark agreement between the leading manufacturers.
Companies including Apple, Nokia and Sony Ericsson yesterday promised to start offering phones that fit a universal charger from next year.
The move comes in response to anger from consumers who are landed with chargers with different connections for each phone bought.
This is good news. This means I'll no longer have to rent a warehouse for my phone charger collection. Though maybe I'll keep the space for the TV remote control menagerie.
