Power-saving outlet

We are consuming more and more resources each year; this is why saving energy has become an important issue. There are countless plug sockets in our house and we often unwittingly wasting a lot of electricity. For example: when an electrical appliance is not in use it still consumes power. This is very wasteful.
If we can clearly see the power consumption of each plug, and we can easily disconnect the power, then we will save many of the electricity.

This power-saving outlet combines a power consumption display and a disconnect power switch with the convenience of a built-in extension cord.
