All in One Smart Plug / Plug

All in One Smart Plug

For different countries and areas, the power sockets and jack plugs are somewhat different in terms of the appearance, level, and dimensions due to various specifications of voltages/jack plugs. Each country has its own standard that is regulated by its government and this is very inconvenient for travelers or international business people. The “All in One Smart Plug” proposes a type of novel concept. Via the operation interface on the back plate, a user is able to select the country where he/she stays and it transforms the jack plug into the corresponding socket specification/voltage.
