Sprout / Plug


“Sprout” is a power-saving plug set, helping the electronic product thoroughly cut off the circuit after turning off the power. When you need to turn on your electronic product, press down the sprout. At the same time, the sensor will be gradually showing withered color. By this design, it helps users do self-questioning about our nature resource that we are consuming. After finishing using your product, press back the sprout, letting it go back to its life and giving it more room to breathe for our nature surrounding.
