New EU regulation could force smartphone makers to return replacement batteries

The European Union has proposed new rules for regulating the smartphone market. In addition to the mandatory USB-C port, they proposed new battery requirements. A new regulation has already been drafted, which will force manufacturers to make batteries more reliable, environmentally friendly and recyclable. The document also implies the ease of replacing batteries.

In fact, this is the development of the idea of ​​​​the return of removable batteries, which suggested 2 years ago. At the moment, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU have tentatively agreed to revise the rules of the union so that they take into account technological developments and possible problems in the future. The new rules will cover the design, manufacture, operation and disposal of all batteries in the EU.

They plan to set a maximum for CO2 emissions. Also among the requirements is the use of recycled materials.

Also, new batteries will receive labels and QR codes, which will contain information about battery capacity, performance, chemical composition, durability, and so on. Finally, new batteries should be easy to remove so that the user can do it himself.

If these rules are adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the EU, then 3.5 years after approval they will come into force.
