MADHU AGRAWAL | 22 Mar 2011
NOKIA, THE largest-selling brand of mobile-phones in India, once changed socket-size of battery-charging cord connecting to the handset for some of its models. Such size-change caused inconvenience to users requiring different chargers for different instruments used in a family or organisation. Socket-size should be standardised to remain same universally like is in case of electrical plugs and sockets.
All manufacturers of mobile-phones should be co-ordinated to have a common and uniform system of mobile-chargers in a manner that users may be able to use same charger for any handset of any make and model. It will be convenient for car-manufacturers to fix mobile-charger as original equipment in cars. Bureau of Indian Standards should take steps in larger consumer-interest.
