The New British Standard Slimmed Down Three-Pin Plug

The Royal College of Art's graduate show has opened, and this year, the show-stopper was actually -- a plug.

Min-Kyu Choi impressed every passerby with his neat, apparently market-ready plug that folds down to the width of a thin mobile computer.

"Many of today's mobile computers have become wafer thin but here in the UK, we still use the world's biggest three-pin plug," says Choi.

Enter Choi's slimmed down British three-pin plug wonder.

Choi's plug is just 10mm wide when folded. To unfold it, the two live pins swivel 90 degrees and the plastic surround folds back around the pins so the face of the plug looks the same as a standard UK plug.

The idea produced a spin off, too. Choi created a multi-plug adaptor, which is a compact standard plug sized unit with space for three folded plugs to slot in, as well as one that charges USB devices.

The multi-plug adaptor has an ultra-compact sandwich design that enables three compatible plugs to cohabit side by side to take up a remarkable small amount of room.

It's so plausible and so obvious a product that it should produce a few red faces; how many more years are we going to endure attaching our palm sized mobiles and wafer thin laptops to an object that's barely been touched since its first design in 1946?

Choi picked an everyday product that most other designers might have found too mundane to dabble with and drastically improved it - exactly the kind of thinking that we should be celebrating right now.

A very clean and elegantly simple solution to an age-old British problem.

An incredible way to feed power directly to charge USB devices - a solution no one has thought about. Till now.

如果耗電量過大的電器,也能如此使用嗎??
m claire  Ex MVP icon  於 2010-02-01 00:59:35 說
英國的電壓是220v,要看那個迴路多少安培囉!因為我生活在英國,那個設計真的比現在英國的插頭好多了,且美觀!

這個設計是讓壓縮原本插頭佔用的空間,讓一個插座就能接上好幾個插頭。
至於能否用耗電量大的電器,還是要評估整體功率的分配。
一般使用的安全開關是20A~40A不等,以 20A 為例,同一配電迴路最大輸出為 2000瓦。那文中的一座三出,每線最大667瓦,大約能支撐二台電腦的電力。至於末端配線能否撐667瓦,則要看線材的用料規格了。總之,用電切勿過度集中,以策安全。
