Fluorescent socket / socket

Fluorescent socket

Many electrical appliances(like mobile phone, etc.)need to be charged after we turn off the light in night. However, it’s hard to get the exact position of the plug base and plugholes in the dark. Fluorescent socket provides a solution to find the socket quickly in the dark without turning on the lights. The edge part of the plugholes is made of a fluorescent material so people can find them easily in the dark.
