Hmm, lots of moving parts that are going to have a deal with a fair bit of force. Also less waterproof than a normal moulded plug. Can see how it's good for laptops/travel use, but would you want one on your kettle?

Now that is a great design! :beer:

Why the @#$% though do we have so many different plug designs around the world?

We can't even standardise that, or a measurement standard (weights and distance), language, which side of the road to drive on, etc... :clueless:

Yes, mainly for portable devices, travel etc. Also I assume they'll be quite a lot more expensive than a normal moulded plug so you wouldn't put them on anything that's bulky already, or that doesn't really move. No point.

The multiplug adaptor and the USB charger are both really good though. Would much rather have one of those 3 ways than your traditional kind of 4-way or whatever.
