Planned obsolescence

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Planned obsolescence describes devices and machines which have deliberately been built in a way to fail prematurely.

Examples[edit]

  • A battery that reaches the end of its lifespan renders a device near-useless if not connected to an external power sourcr. The battery is the component of portable electronics with the shortest life span, thus non-replaceable batteries are a form of planned obsolescence.
