These 3 devices must be connected to the mains
1. Inkjet Printer
Inkjet printers are designed to run on low power, so they don’t put a heavy burden on your electricity bill. If you keep unplugging the printer from the power supply, the next time you turn it on, the device assumes it needs to be reinstalled and flushes the steel nozzle with ink to remove any dryness. Problem? The ink empties automatically – without you printing too much.
2. OLED TV
Even modern televisions should not be unplugged from the mains. In standby mode, the device’s pixels are automatically refreshed in the background. If you unplug the TV every time, you run the risk of damaging the device, which can affect picture quality. Therefore, find out in advance whether you should actually connect your device to a socket with a toggle switch.
You can pull the plug on these devices
To save power and avoid standby mode, you can unplug the following home appliances without any problems:
- Washing machine
- DVD player
- smartphone charging cable
- enough equipment
- Game Console
To disconnect appliances from power even more easily, we recommend using socket strips with toggle switches.
