Standby / multi-socket


When we are not using the electronic products, we usually leave the plug in the outlet, and we sometimes don't pull out the plug for a long time. Most people know there is stadby power; however, they habitually don't pull out the plug when they are not using the electric products. This new multi-socket uses colored lights to show how long things have been plugged into it without being used.
