The Flip Plug Makes the Famously Bulky British Electrical Plug Compact

The Flip plug is a special folding club that is designed for use in conjunction with and in place of the famously bulky British electrical plugs.

British plugs work fine but were designed for larger appliances like lamps and kettles, and not modern-day gizmos like tablets and smartphones. They are not the most convenient to use with thin laptops, the the massive three-pronged design is perfect for damaging the inside of your laptop bag. This prompted manufacturer OneAdaptr to come up with an improvement.

This folding plug is about a third the size of a regular British plug, and as a bonus features multiple USB ports. It comes in two-port and four-port variants for added versatility. It is perfect for anyone who finds it inconvenient to use a bulky plug with a compact device.
