If you bought Fairphone 3, you probably noticed that the only thing in the box was the phone. No charger. No cables. No little extras. And we do that on purpose – to cut down on e-waste and encourage you to use what you already own.
But maybe you lost your charging cable. Or you need a different plug when you travel for work. Or perhaps it’s finally time to replace your ratty headphones. So if and when that moment arrives, we’re proud to announce that we’ve got you covered – our online shop is now fully stocked with essential Fairphone 3 accessories!
Our current selection includes USB-C cables and power plugs for the EU and UK. But our new earphones deserve an extra-special shout-out: just like our phones, they have a modular design. That means the cable and the earbuds can be replaced separately if anything happens.
This is more than just a sales pitch
Yes, this is obviously a blog post about new products you can order online. But as usual, there’s a bigger motivation behind it: We believe that your phones should last longer! Part of that comes down to being able to take better care of them, which is why we put such a big focus on modular design and easy repairs. And it seems like we’re on the right track: iFixit gave the Fairphone 3 a 10 out of 10 for easy repairability.
Repairing (instead of replacing) isn’t just good for your wallet – it’s also great for the planet. In fact, because the majority of your phone’s CO2 emissions come from the production process, every extra year you use your phone going reduces your environmental footprint.
Our goal is to make your Fairphone experience as enjoyable and long-lasting as possible. So if something goes wrong, wears out or breaks, we want to give you the power to replace or repair a single part. And then (and only then), we’re happy to be able to supply exactly what you need.
