Just read about problems with the supplied charger. Actually the standard micro USB chargers should eliminate the need to supply a new charger with every device. Jolla could be "unlike" here as well and give a little discount, an extra other half or any other small "thank you" if the device is ordered without charger. Could be a "win-win-win" situation. Jolla: A little bit more margin for Jolla plus reputation / marketing potential, customer: something extra or a bit cheaper, and of course its good for the environment! Probably many of us have heaps of USB chargers floating around. I think no other vendor dared to offer devices without charger yet. Time for Jolla to innovate and be the first ones here as well! Edit: To make it clear: I suggest it as an OPTION to chose to get no charger! It's a challenge for Jolla's logistics, but nothing bad for the customers.

I quite agree. The charger supplied with my Jolla is of no use here in the UK, unless I use a travel adapter to plug it into first. So I now own, what you already refer to, 'another charger floating around' that is of no use to me ultimately. I'm using a charger that came with my Nokia N8 a few years, works fine with Jolla.

The Jolla charger works great with the shaver sockets in hotel rooms so justifies its existence in that respect:)

One more thought: Actually the charger country variants are probably a logistical challenge. Contrary to my previous concern that it is logistically a challenge to introduce a "no charger" variant, this variant might be possible to ship worldwide, just a different sticker on the box! Even easier?

I love it! I have heaps of chargers lying around here. I would easily choose a "charger-less" option, even if it wasn't even cheaper nor I wouldn't get something extra, like an other half, as compensation.

It would also be in line with the policy of not including a generic, low-quality head-set.

I would like also to add an headset as extra item as option when purchasing. I have a microusb charger but not an headset with microphone and button.
