Since the very end of 2020, a new trend has been emerging in the world of smartphones: the charger that we are used to discovering in a freshly purchased smartphone box is gradually disappearing. Apple started the movement with its iPhone 12 for ecological and economic purposes.

Samsung and Xiaomi are also getting started

For the Mi 11, the Chinese brand nevertheless appeals to the common sense of its community: users have the possibility of receiving a charger by way of bundle separate, at no extra cost. While on the side of Apple, no choice is left to consumers: the charger is no longer relevant, full stop.

The withdrawal of the charger, for or against?

The common idea therefore remains the same, but the implementation of it may differ slightly from one manufacturer to another. What school are you from? Is the withdrawal of chargers, or not, a good initiative for companies in the sector?
