With the proliferation of charging cables, bricks, and cords that vary from device to device, the European Union has handed down a mandate that common consumer electronics sold in the EU will be required to have a USBC charging port, eliminating the need for multiple charging devices, empowering consumer choice and reducing e-waste. Today, our guest is Dinesh Kithany from Watt. Dinesh is a well-established Wireless Power Industry analyst with over 25 years of experience across the technology sector and consumer markets. Dinesh will discuss the reasoning and impact of the new EU universal charger mandate and also help us understand how the wireless power industry is primed to help reduce our dependence on cords and chargers.
