I think this would be a great idea to implement here. This may be one of the reasons I've read the cell phone manufacturers are looking at switching to a universal charger so that old ones don't get dumped....in the dump. Imagine never having to hunt through a drawer full of various voltages, connectors etc if someone is over and needs a charge!
