One Charger to Rule them all…At least in Europe

The European Parliament has voted on a law that would require one standard phone charger for all cellphones in EU (European Union) countries. They had a voluntary requirement to make a standard a few years back. The law isn’t expected to be law until 2017 so cellphone companies have plenty of time to change. Most cellphones use the microUSB already but a few namely Apple and the last few Iphones have relied upon adapters in EU countries. All I want to know is when will this law come to the states.
