Really comes down to economies of scale, if you’re making millions of something there is a very small amount of expense per unit in producing a different plug. Like, I’m guessing it’s a couple cents per device.

Licensing fees for proprietary plugs easily make up the difference, and it’s a gift that keeps giving for years after the original purchase.

Parts may only be a couple cents per device, but now you need different packaging, different instructions printed, you need to track and ship different products to proper places there's alot of little things that add up.
