Safe Socket / socket

Safe Socket
Safe Socket

We have come up with a magnetic socket. Only after this socket detects magnetic power will an electric current be allowed to pass. Therefore, the danger of electric shock is eliminated. It is much easier to plug or unplug; meanwhile, the risk of being tripped down is totally excluded. Interestingly, the compatible plug is equipped with a built-in battery. This way, even if the plug is loosened, the power will last for three to five minutes. Another advantage is that the socket is armed with a power-sensing system, which loosens the plugs automatically when the voltage is too high.
