Correction: the EU common charger directive will not impact Nikon DSLR cameras in 2025

From Amateurphotographer:

“From 28 December 2024, the EU’s common charger directive will come into effect, meaning that electronic devices that cannot be charged via USB-C won’t be sold in the EU. This includes phones and digital cameras, including cameras in Nikon’s DSLR lineup. The directive was first made in 2022 and manufacturers have already been taking this into account. With the release of the iPhone 15 series, Apple notably swapped its previously used Lightning cable for a USB-C one to comply with the EU’s directive.”

Nikon cameras without USB-C charging:

  • Nikon D850
  • Nikon D6
  • Nikon D7500

It seems that from the current Nikon DSLR lineup, only the D780 camera will be compliant with the new EU common charger directive.
