Magnetic Ring / Socket

Magnetic Ring
Magnetic Ring

The ‘Magnetic Ring’is characterized by magnetism to improve the function that is like charges rebel, but opposite charges attract. The ‘Magnetic Ring’could be stalled on the plug and socket. When we need to insert the plug, rotate the ‘Magnetic Ring’on the plug against the counterpart on the socket to save energy. When we need to disconnect the plug, rotate is in the opposite way which makes it easy, convenient and safe to use plug. Positive pole and negative pole attract each other so that they won’t be loose easily when the plug is inserted into the socket.
