Safe Socket / Socket / Socket

Safe Socket / Socket

We have come up with a magnetic socket. Only after this socket detects magnetic power will an electric current be allowed to pass. Interestingly, the compatible plug is equipped with a built-in battery. This way, even if the plug is loosened, the power will last for three to five minutes. Another advantage is that the socket is armed with a power-sensing system, which loosens the plugs automatically when the voltage is too high. In other words, when such a natural disaster as an earthquake occurs, the safe socket will release the plugs automatically, eliminating the risk of power leaks and fires.
