Safety socket / Household appliances

Safety socket

This plug and socket has been redesigned to achieve safety and power protection by using the same principle of magnets.When the plug is inserted into the socket, the magnets repel each other, the connected magnet moves to form a closed circuit, and the current passes. When other foreign objects are inserted, the connected magnet cannot move, and the current cannot pass, ensuring safe use of electricity.
