Divided Socket / socket

Divided Socket
Divided Socket

DIVIDED SOCKET divides a socket into 2 parts, to understand it easily, I call the main part the MUM and
the small ones on it the SONs. It is easy to put the SONs on the MUM, because the contact surfaces
of the 2 parts are magnetic. When the a SON is connected to a plug, they become a whole, thus making
it easy to be placed on the MUM. With DIVIDED SOCKET you can even use electrical appliances from
other countries, because there are different kinds of SONs playing the role of connecting intermediaries
and transformers. Moreover, the switch of DIVIDED SOCKET is also well designed, it is set in the origin
of the power line.
