GET RID OF PLUG ADAPTERS FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL
Learn how plug adapters gets you and your loved ones close to danger, and what to use instead
As more devices and tools rely on electricity, our need for electric sockets also increases. From phone chargers to vacuum cleaners, almost everything in our household needs electrical power. We often fix these problems by buying a plug adapter at the nearest store.
But are double plug adapters really the answer? Don’t you know that your trusted plug adapter may betray you, causing your family harm?
Let’s find out reasons why you need to dump your plug adapter now.
Lack of Surge Protection
Any electrical tool that lacks grounding system or surge protection poses your gadgets to irreparable damage.
These damage range from key components of the device being destroyed, to your device burned to ashes.
Grounding systems and surge protection systems prevent electrical surge (excess electricity) to go directly through your device.
Odd Designs That Expose Live Prongs
Plug adapters, especially double plug adapters, have angles that are not optimal for safe use of electrical products.
It is also tempting to forcefully piggy-back devices on a plug adapter that has narrow spaces in between.
Some plug adapters do not fit with your plug.
It might be too short or tight to accept your plug.
Or, it might be too loose or deep.
Poorly-designed plug adapters often leave a part of the prong exposed. A part of your finger or piece of jewelry can surely cause electrical shock which results in burns or other fatal injuries.
Unsuited prongs also increase chances of damage to your device due to incompatibility in the electricity sent through the adapter. Stick to products which designs and features are proven to be safe and efficient.
Plug Adapters Cannot Handle Overloading And Overheating
If you have a plug adapter, you can notice that they tend to heat up if used over time. Why?
Unlike power strips and extension leads, plug adapters are NOT optimized to handle greater amounts of power from gadgets and appliances.
Other plugs have limited voltage capacity, making them incompatible with your devices.
Continuous use of plug adapters puts you at risk turning your devices and your house into flammable materials.

What should you use instead?
One of the ways to avoid crossing paths with plug adapters is replacing your wall sockets with ones compatible with it. You can also put additional sockets if you want to.
Though, this costs you more, since you need to pay for a handyman and an electrician. Power strips and extension leads can power more devices while being versatile, affordable, and safe.
