The IEC approves new load specification via USB
In the future, the business of selling notebook battery chargers for a business may not be as profitable for OEMs. This is because the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has approved a new specification of Electric charge through USB, up to 100W.
In other words, this means that it will be possible to recharge a single notebook with a Standard USB cable and a universal charger. According Jeff Ravencraft USB-IF told The Inquirer, “the adoption of this standard by the International Electrotechnical Commission is very important for us and for consumers” because it will allow shippers aside owners in notebooks and adopt more universal solutions.
The approved specification indicates that the cables for charging can work both ways: loading the computer from a power source, and with that same cable from charging a mobile computer.
Yes, maybe the adoption of this new standard is somewhat slow, mainly because those who manufacture notebooks not want to lose the money coming succulent means they sell their own chargers.
