Freedom / Plug and socket

Freedom
Freedom

Not having enough sockets or having mismatched plugs and sockets seems to be a frequently-encountered problem in daily life. ‘Freedom’ links socket and plug with magnetism instead of socket holes and cumbersome plugs designs. Only when the socket and plug stick together, the green indicator on the socket will light up to indicate that it has been powered up. Conventional sockets have no more than 3 connections, on the other hand this socket offers nine plugs. Moreover, when the electric power of electrical appliances is too much, the socket will generate the same magnetism as the plug to bounce it away to ensure the security of use.
