I’ve never been to the UK myself, mostly because I don’t trust their large and obese outlet plugs. Yep, your plugs are enough to keep me away from your country. I mean, if you can’t figure out a small plug… Well, I don’t want any part of that. The large UK plugs may soon change however, thanks to one designer.
The video is slow side, but here’s a breakdown. Like us, the UK is filled with slim electronics, but those gadgets have actually become skinnier than the required 1.8-inch-thick power plug. This new design can collapse to just 1cm (or .4 inches) when not in use, allowing it to squeeze into small bags and pockets. And no more unnecessary pressure on the prongs when your bag is set down the wrong way.
