Folding Plug / Folding Plug

Folding Plug
Folding Plug

It is powered only when folded 90 degrees to fully attach the board. Then the red stripe unfolded from hidden position indicatesthat the power is on. When it is folded to the power on position, it could be unplugged by unintentionally touch. This can also free us from unpluging the power frequently. What’s more, when the plug is some distance away in thecorner, it can be done without reaching it by creeping into a narrow alcove.More importantly, many people don't have the consciousness to unplug the power after using their machine. Folding-Plug enables people to eliminate a considerable amount of electricity consumed by standby mode.
