[…] an enterprising design student has come up with a folding plug that tucks away snugly to a quarter of the size of a standard one. […]
It is intended to be used with laptops, mobile phones and digital cameras, where the normal size would be too bulky and the pins could scratch the device.
The plug is just 1cm thick compared with the standard 4.5cm size.
Designer Min Kyu Choi, from Bayswater, West London, came up with the idea after a plug damaged his laptop. […]
He has also created an adaptor that allows three of the plugs to fit into one standard socket.
