MAGNETIC PLUG / product design


A great number of accidents happen through the plug and while appliances are plugged in, electricity is continuously wasted.
By changing the meeting point to a magnet, any accidents or injuries can be avoided.
Moreover, although an appliance is plugged in, by turning the switch – also the body of the plug - from on to off,
even the slighest remaining flow of current can be blocked.
Thus, using the magnetic plug saves energy without unnecessarily pulling out the plug.
